Lute of Bradford United Church conducting the service.Interment was in Mount Pleasant Cemetery, Bradford. The pallbearers were Messrs. Erich Meier, Wm. Melbourne, Allen Proctor, Carl Black, Vernon Stephenson and James Stephenson.The flower bearers were members of the Black River Hunt Club, to which the deceased belonged for many years, namely, Fred Miller, Frank Smeltzer, Alan Crake, Fred Collings, Gordon Compton, John Hambly and Howard Black.
