A lightly edited partial transcript of the Waterford column on page 13 of the 13 Dec 1917 issue of Simcoe Reformer. [This article was poorly microfilmed, making the first few characters on each line unreadable. Text in square brackets is simply the transcriber's best guess.]

Another of Waterford's aged and prominent citizens in the person of Frederick Alway, in his 86th year, departed this life on Sunday last.

Before coming to Waterford [..] years ago, the deceased was a successful farmer near Vittoria and being a shrew business man was also more than ordinarily successful in the investment of his money in many ways.

Mr. Alway was always a men of great activity and although failing in health for some considerable time, was out to church and Sunday School a week ago last Sunday and around as usual until taken down with pneumonia about the middle of last week. This is remarkable for a man of his years.

The late Mr. Alway was a life long Reformer and a Baptist. 

He is survived by a sorrowing widow, two sons, Dr. W. R. of Waterford and Dr. Fred. J. of St. Minn., and one daughter, Mrs. Geo. [W]. Robertson of Edmonton, and [one] brother, Dr. E. A. Alway of Hamilton, to whom the sincere sympathy of a wide circle of friends is [extended].

The funeral took place on [Wednesday] at 2 o'clock p.m. from his late residence, St. James Street. The services were conducted by Rev. [.] [R.] Moore. Interment was made in Greenwood Cemetery.
