DEATH OF CLIFFORD RAMSHAW
A Valued Employee of the Free Press
Died at St. Michael's Hospital,
News reached town on Monday evening of the death of Clifford Ramshaw, son of Alex Ramshaw, West Toronto, at St. Michael's Hopsital, Toronto, that afternoon. An operation was in progress for relief from a tumor on the brain, when the heart ceased its action.
Clifford Ramshaw was a bright intelligent young man and it was felt that he had a promising future. He entered the office of the FREE PRESS as an apprentice in January, 1906, and for three and a half years was one of the most faithful employees ever engaged on our staff.
About a year ago he was taken ill and for many months his ailment baffled his physicians. At times he would recover and feel fairly well again. Last winter he spent a few days in the office, but was soon confined to his room again. Every period of respite from pain was succeed[sic] by most excruciating attacks.
In May, when his parents were removing to their new home in West Toronto he was taken to St. Joseph's Hospital, and in a few weeks was able to go to the city. But the trouble soon appeared again and the tumor progressed so that the past few weeks he was practically blind.
Mr. and Mrs. Ramshaw spared no time or expense in their effort to secure relief for their son.
Clifford was born on Bower Avenue, Acton, in June, 1890, and had just entered his twenty-first year.
The many friends and former neighbors here extend heartfelt sympathy with Mr. and Mrs. Ramshaw in their sore bereavement.
The remains were brought from Toronto yesterday morning and the funeral was held from the home of Mr. George Dills, Park Ave., at three o'clock, to Fairview Cemetery.
