Full Text

Harold White, who for an all too brief period was an active and respected merchant of Grimsby, passed away peacefully at his home, 16 Main Street, Tuesday morning of this week. He was in his 42nd year, and had been in poor health for some time.

The late Harold White and his wife started their own grocery business at the corner of Main and Oak Streets in June 1948. Their genial attitude toward the public brought instant success to the enterprise and it was with regret that Grimsby saw the thriving business change hands when illness sidelined Harold - an illness he fought bravely until his passing this week. Throughout all the months of poor health, Harold White remained a cheerful person and a conversationalist all who knew him appreciated. The town has indeed suffered through his departure from our midst.

The late Harold White was born and raised in Stoney Creek, son of Jonathan and the late Jane White. He leaves to mourn his passing his beloved wife, Myrtle; his father, who resides at Stoney Creek; four brothers, Cecil, Stanley and Winston, Stoney Creek, and Wilfred, of Hamilton; two sisters, Mrs. O.A. Stickles, Harrow, and Mrs. Jas. Hamilton, Hamilton.

Funeral services will be conducted from the Stonehouse Funeral Home at 3 o'clock today (Thursday February 1st). Interment will be made in Queen's Lawn Cemetery.
