In the death of Holmes C. Stevens, at the home of his daughter, Mrs.
Coutts, 6 Parkview Avenue, Toronto, last Friday, Acton lost its oldest citizen. Mr. Stevens went to Toronto last fall to spend the winter in the city. He was taken seriously ill a month ago and has gradually failed since. He was in his eighty-seventh year, and spent most of his years in Toronto. He was a contractor there and built several important buildings. He was a contractor on St. James Cathedral on King Street. Four years ago Mr. Stevens removed to Acton with his son, Mr. Harry Stevens and his daughter, Miss Stevens. He enjoyed his residence here and was able to walk down town to the Post Office and to Church on Sunday until he went to Toronto. Mr. Stevens was a life-long member of the Methodist Church and was always interested in its activism. The funeral was held on Monday and interment took place at Prospect Cemetery, Toronto.
