Brantford, 13 Sep 1901 --
There passed away last night at his parents' home on Dalhousie
Street, Dufferin Bowbeer, youngest and only living son of James
and Mary Bowbeer.
"Duff" as he was
familiarly called, had just recently finished his studies at the
College of Pharmacy in Toronto, securing his diploma with highest
Undoubtedly the strain of
college life was too much for a constitution never rugged, hence
after an illness of about six weeks, he succumbed.
During the last two weeks
he appeared to rally, and his ultimate recovery seemed possible.
He was particularly bright during the last day of his life,
sitting up and talking cheerfully with his friends.
Shortly after retiring he
was taken with an acute attack and succumbed in half an hour.
[Mr. Bowbeer was a former
resident of this place.]
