Description : The passing of William Henry Breedon at Toronto General Hospital on Friday, March 2, in his 28th year, was a sad loss to his family and to the community in which he had spent his life. The young man had not enjoyed robust health and it was known that an illness which normally would not be regarded as serious to many people might be very dangerous to him, therefore when he became ill with a heavy cold every precaution was taken and he was moved to hospital, but to no avail. He passed away within a few days. Born at Bond Head on September 29, 1928, a son of Nat and Mary Sutherland Breedon, William Breedon had lived all his life at Bond Head, as his parents have done. He attended school in the village and was a member of Bond Head United Church and took a great interest in the work of that church. In his home he was a devoted son.He is survived by his parents; two brothers, Jack and Joe, and a sister, Ann.The funeral was held from his late home on Monday of last week, with the services being conducted by Rev. R. Love, Minister of Bond Head United Church, assisted by Rev. Lee of Schomberg. Interment was in the Bond Head Cemetery. The pallbearers were William Brethet, Bud Brown, Brian Jackson, Leonard King, Wallace Reynolds and Wilson Stoddart. Beautiful floral tributes were received from Bond Head Church and Sunday School, Dunkerron Church, Girl Guides, Boy Scouts, Bond Head School, Dunkerron School, and community relatives, neighbours and other friends. The funeral was attended by friends from Toronto, Brampton, Newmarket, Gormley, Newtonbrook, Alliston, Bradford, Beeton and Schomberg.
