Charles P. Hawkey, a highly respected resident of North Grimsby, died at his home on the Ridge Road last Saturday night.
The late Mr. Hawkey, son of Anthony and Mary Rundel Hawkey, was born in Cobourg, on September 2nd, 1852. He married Mary D. Vanduzer, daughter of the late John W. Vanduzer of North Grimsby, in 1886, and since that time has lived in the vicinity of Grimsby.
Mr Hawkey, besides being public spirited, was a man of exemplary habits and character, and always ready to lend a willing hand when asked.
His death will be a distinct loss to the neighborhood.
Left to mourn his death are his widow, one daughter, Florence E., and one son, Lewis, all at home; another younger son, Roy, went overseas with the 47th battery and was killed in action near Passchendaele in 1917.
The sympathy of the community is extended to the bereaved family.
