Sudden Death of C. B. Spencer

On Saturday last, two or three hours before the funeral of J. B. Jackson was held, in a home that almost adjoined his, another well known citizen of Simcoe answered the call of the Grim Harvestman.

Like his neighbor and friend, Mr. Spencer had been ill, and was feeling better, and to both the summons came unexpectedly and in a moment.

Charles Bingley Spencer had not been long a resident here, but he had always known Simcoe and Simconians, and was popular both here and in the Port Rowan section, where he was born and spent most of his life.

He was born in the village of Port Royal, 76 years ago last November. After spending a time a farming, he embarked in the lumbering business, which he continued to follow until able and willing to retire.

He was married twice. His first wife was a Miss Hanson, a niece of the late Sheriff Jackson. Of this marriage two children were born. One died in infancy. A son, Mr. Jack Spencer, a frequent visitor here, is a fisherman in a big way in Northern Ontario.

Some years ago, Mr. Spencer married a second time. On this occasion to Mrs. Quinton Fick, and he came here to reside. The remains were taken to Port Rowan on Monday for interment in Bayview Cemetery.
