The funeral was held here on Saturday morning at 8:30 o'clock, of John B GARRAH, 89, who died at his residence on North Street on Thursday last.

He was employed by Mitchell & Wilson, the Skinner Company, and Ontario Steel Products Co. He was a member of St John's Church and the Holy Name Society. He is survived by his wife the former Mrs Fontaine, four sons John, Thomas and Frank, town, and Joseph of Sudbury, and three daughters, Mrs E Compeau (Rose) of Castleman, Ont; Mrs Osias Marleau (Julia) of L'Annunciation, Que; and Mrs Wilmer Hampton (Jane) of town; also one full sister Mrs Robert Keyes, town; three half brothers, Israel and Thomas of Howe Island, and Henry, town; two half sisters Mrs Patrick Kane, Howe Island and Mrs Goodfriend, Chaumont, NY. One son, William, was killed in the First Great War, and one daughter, Mrs Joseph Compeau (Agnes) predeceased him a few years ago.
