Obituary. Word was received in the city yesterday afternoon of the demise of Mr. John Veitch, of Holyrood, who has been working for a number of years with the Western Union Telegraph Company in New York. Although Mr. Veitch has been receiving medical treatment the past two years his passing was unexpected. He served as Agent with the old Newfoundland Railway Company at Salmon Cove (now Avondale), at Harbour Grace Junction (now Whitbourne), and Tilton and later as operator at Heart's Content and St. Pierre, Miq., where his many friends will mourn him. Sincere sympathy is extended to Mrs. Veitch (nee Clara Sinnott, Placentia) and family, and to his brother Mr. Will Veitch and sisters Mrs. Capt. John Lewis and Mrs. John Kennedy of Holyrood. R.I.P.

VEITCH, John
Daily News   November 15, 1922 (Wednesday)

Obituary. The late John Veitch. The death of Mr. John Veitch was recorded a few days ago. Mr. Veitch was the son of the late George Veitch, of Holyrood, and nephew of the late Rt. Rev. Mgr. Veitch, and of the V. Rev. Dean O'Rourke, of the West Coast.
About thirty years ago Mr. Veitch joined the staff of the Anglo-Telegraph Company at St. Pierre, where he remained for three years. Leaving the French Island in 1895, Mr. Veitch proceeded to New York where he entered the offices of the Western Union Telegraph Company. His exceptional ability was soon recognized, and appointment as a District Inspector followed. Shortly afterwards he received promotion to the very responsible position of Superintendent of the Company's extensive Cotton Exchange business. Three years ago Mr. Veitch contracted influenza from the effects of which he never fully recovered. For several months he sought relief at Saranac Lake, but in spite of all that medical skill and careful nursing could do, he passed away on November 9th, at his home in Brooklyn. There survive to mourn their irreparable loss, a widow, formerly Miss Clara Sinnott of Placentia, and four children, his eldest boy, Frank, having given his bright young life at the age of 19 years, in the World War. Mr. Veitch's many friends, both in St. Pierre and Newfoundland, will have learned of his early passing with deepest regret.
