Elmer James Biggar, widely known fruit grower, died at his home in North Grimsby, on Tuesday, Oct. 20, 1925, in his 65th year, after a lingering illness.
"Geoff", as he was familiarly known to many friends, was born in the house in which he died, on lot 21 in the Broken front, North Grimsby, the son of Jacob Biggar, and had been in the fruit industry all his life. For many years he was an inspector under the Fruit Pests Act for which position he was well fitted by his years of association with the fruit industry and a study of his subject.
Surviving are his wife, one son, James Arthur, and one daughter, Mary C., both at home; one brother, William P. Biggar of Jordan, and three sisters, Mrs. B.B. Stewart of Victoria, B.C.; Miss A. Biggar of Dundas, and Miss Louise Biggar of Hamilton.
The funeral will leave his late home at 1:30 on Friday, Oct. 23, proceeding to St. Johns Anglican church, Winona, for service at 2 p.m., thence to Queen's Lawn Cemetery, Grimsby, for interment.
