Guardian has Gone to Rest
Death came to Harry Worrall
with suddenness on Thursday last after only two days illness with
He was taken sick Tuesday
night and after going to Tench's garage for a short rest he managed
to get home and a physician was called.
His ailment was pronounced
angina pectoris and apparently there was nothing that could be done
Mr. Worrall was 52 and had
been a resident of Waterford for five years. He was born in
Stratfordshire, England, and came to Canada 23 years ago.
He was a glass cutter by
trade and carried on this business here for about three years after
which he was appointed village constable, overseer of the waterworks
station and town hall, and gave most satisfactory service.
In fact, we have yet to hear
of any complaint and that is very complimentary. He even went out of
his jurisdiction to capture McCoy, who was conceded to be a maniac.
One son, William, and one
daughter, Beatrice, survive and they have the sincerest sympathy of
all the citizens of Waterford in the loss of a father who was a
night guardian to the business men of the town.
The funeral service was held
in the United Church on Saturday afternoon and conducted by Rev. H.
Wilkins. The remains were afterwards conveyed to Toronto for
interment in Prospect Cemetery.
There were many beautiful
floral tokens testifying to the esteem in which he was held and
there were also many sorrrowing friends among our business men who
attended as the last token of respect they could offer.
He was a citizen of
Waterford for only five years, but during that time had the credit
of giving real service.
