George Badcock
- Death came suddenly to Mr. George Badcock, at his home Shearstown, on Wednesday afternoon, June 24th, following a heart seizure, at the age of 58 years.
The late Mr. Badcock had been employed for many years with the firm of his late brother-in-law, Mr. Albert Mercer, and the late few years his nephew, Mr. Vaughan Mercer, an accountant at the Avalon Stores.
Left to mourn beside his widow, the former Emmie Dwyer, one son, David: one brother, Solomon at Shearstown, three sisters, Caroline (Mrs. Harold Butler) of Kelligrews, Mary (Mrs. E. Mercer) Bay Roberts and Daisy (Mrs. Victor Mercer) of Spaniard's Bay.
Funeral services were held on Friday, June 26th to St. Mark's Church, Shearstown; interment at the Anglican Cemetery. Rev. Isaac Butler officiated.
Deepest sympathy is extended the bereaved.
