Full Text

A veteran resident of the district who attained an unusual age passed away at Grimsby Beach on Thursday last in the person of Alfred Greenwood in his 92nd year. He was widely known not only in this community but throughout the province and had been a resident at Grimsby beach for upwards of 40 years, where he was engaged in the occupation of fruit farming.

The late Mr. Greenwood, who was born in Yorkshire, England, came to Canada at an early age and was educated for a teacher. Through this education his interest turned to book shops and before long he was acting as salesman for a publishing house.

He was a member of the former Methodist church and latterly of the United church, taking an active part in church work.

He leaves to mourn his passing, besides his widow, one daughter and three sons, Mrs. W.A. Davidson of Dundas, J.C. Greenwood, Winnipeg, F.W. Greenwood, Quebec and A.L. Greenwood, Grimsby Beach; also one sister, Mrs. Robert Riggs, Pasadena, California.

The funeral services were held from his late residence, Park Road, on Monday afternoon, with Rev. E.A. Earchman and Rev. Dr. Cline officiating. Interment was made in Queen's Lawn Cemetery.

The following were pallbearers: Messrs. James Marlowe, G.W. Crittenden, George Fair, Roy Johnson, Fred Stevenson, I. Tramp.

Ed. note: a revised obituary appears in the January 23rd issue of the newspaper, saying that interment was made in Grove Cemetery, Dundas.
