- His many friends were shocked to hear of the sudden passing on Wednesday evening, July 24, at Tilton, of William A. Crane, at the age of sixty-two years.
Mr. Crane retired a few years ago after having spent most of his lifetime working with the Dominion Iron and Steel Company at Wabana, at which place he was well and favourably known.
He was a member of the L.O.A. at Tilton, of the Royal Black Preceptory of Upper Island Cove, and of "Lodge MacKay" AF & AM at Bay Roberts.
His funeral was held at Tilton on Friday last. The services for the burial of the dead was read in Church of All Saints by the rector, Rev. Canon T. E. Loder who also read the committal prayers. Delegations from the organizations of which the deceased was a member attended the funeral, and burial was in the family plot.
To his bereaved widow and sisters we offer our deepest sympathy.
