Description : Friends of Frank Adamson were shocked last Wednesday when the message came that he was dead. Mr. Adamson worked on a night shift at Malton and left home Tuesday evening apparently in his usual good health and high spirits. According to information reaching here he tripped while at work and fell striking his head. He was rushed unconscious to Toronto Western Hospital but was dead on arrival. Mr. and Mrs. Adamson came to Bradford about eight years ago and for the first several years here Mr. Adamson managed the Imperial service station at the corner of Barrie and John Streets. He then worked on the highway for a time before beginning work at Malton, going back and forth daily from here. He is survived by his wife and three children, Ronald 16, Susie, 9, and an infant son. The funeral was held here on Jan. 2 with Rev. H. G. Blake conducting the services. Interment was in Mount Pleasant Cemetery. The pallbearers were members of the Bradford Canadian Corps.
