A well known resident died
yesterday morning in the person of Capt. Thomas Puzey.
His health had not been of
the best for some time, but his death came very unexpectedly.
He was in his 82nd year. He
had recently returned from a year's visit to his daughter, Mrs.
Allen of Saskatoon.
Capt. Puzey spent
practically all his long life here, his farm in Woodhouse being
close to town.
In the early days of the
militia he took an active part in the formation of the [old] Norfolk
Rifles, and was the C.O. of No. 6 Company for a long period.
He was a [....... .......]
prominently identified with the Norfolk Agricultural Society. He was
an Anglican, a Conservative, and a member of the Masonic fraternity.
His wife, who predeceased
him some 18 months ago,
was Mary, daughter of the late Squire S. H. Hunt,
at one time a leading man in Norfolk County.
Of their union, there
survive three sons and one daughter: Thomas H. of Simcoe; John of
Fred of Seattle, and Mrs. Allen, already mentioned.
The funeral will take place
tomorrow afternoon to
St. John's Woodhouse.
