Tyrrell and surrounding neighborhood are mourning the loss of one of its brightst [sic] and most cheerful young men in the person of Ross Misener, who was called home on 2 Sep 1910, after a very short illness, and the age of 26.

Ross was converted in Mt. Zion church at the age of 16, his conversion being very clear and bright. He attended the young men's prayer meeting at the same church under the leadership of Mr. Elias Hyde, and was also a regular attendant at Tyrrell Baptist Church.

When asked by those attending him if he was trusting in Jesus, he answered "Yes" and a little later he said to his mother "I feel good" and again he exclaimed "I feel happy, Jesus is with me." He passed away very easy, death being caused by pneumonia.

Deceased was a great lover of music, and often his neighbors have been cheered by the sound of his cornet or violin as it was wafted to them on the evening breeze.

He leaves a mother and two brothers to mourn their loss, his father and sister predeceasing him to a Better Land by some four years.

The many beautiful flowers that were placed on the casket, and the large number of friends who followed him to the grave, bore evidence of the high esteem in which the departed was held.

He was a member of Tyrrell Lodges C.O.F. and O.C.H.C., holding high offices in each lodge.
