Death came somewhat suddenly to Mr. John W. Husband, of Kitchener who was for many years an esteemed resident of Acton, last Saturday morning. Mr. Husband was about his duties as usual on Monday and while feeling poorly on Christmas day, with a bad cold, did not anticipate any serious results. In a day or two, however, pneumonia set in and this insidious ailment was the cause of his death. The remains were brought to Acton on Monday forenoon and then conveyed to Ebenezer Church, Nassagaweya, where an impressive service was held. Interment took place in the family plot at Ebenezer Cemetery where so many relatives and companions of earlier days lie at rest. Mr. Husband was born on the Guelph road, about a mile from where he was buried, sixty-seven years ago. Here he spent his boyhood days. About forty-seven years ago he married Agnes Hall, who was born in Yorkshire, England, and came to Canada with her parents when but a child, and settled in Nassagaweya. Mrs. Husband, who has been an invalid for several years, survives and also their daughter, Mrs. Charles B. Ebbings, of Kitchener. Mr. Husband was a man of sterling upright character, a godly man who lived in all respects up to his profession. He was esteemed by all. During his long residence in Acton he made many friends here. He was a member of the Methodist Church from his boyhood days. Much sympathy if felt for Mrs. Husband, who is left very lonely by the departure of her beloved husband.
