Full Text

One of this district's widely known residents, Alfred M. Cocks, former nursery man, died yesterday at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Edith Beaverstock, Winona, after a long illness.

In his 85th year, he was born at Tavistock, England, coming to Winona in 1903. After being employed by the E.D. Smith firm for about 2 years, he started as a fruit grower for himself in 1906. A little later he established the nursery stock business from which he retired 5 years ago and which is now carried on by his son.

He was a devoted churchman, being a member of Fifty United Church in which he had been active for many years.

His wife predeceased him in March, 1944, one year after they had celebrated their golden wedding anniversary. Surviving are three sons and two daughters, Horace, Arthur and Ralph, all of Winona; Mrs. Edith Beaverstock, Winona and Mrs. H.R. Peal, of Hamilton; also 10 grandchildren.
