Bert Arrowsmith had been a soldier from 1917 to 1919; prior to then he was a farmer. He was unmarried, and the son of John Arrowsmith and Emma Huscroft (both born in Utah USA). The informant was his brother Osman Arrowsmith of Creston, per familysearch.org online copy of BC Archives death certificate 1921-09-293590.

Excepted from the Creston Review 09 Dec 1921 page 1, via the UBC historical newspapers website:
Creston citizens were greatly shocked on Friday last to hear of the death of-Albert Eugene Victor, youngest son of Mr. and Mrs. John Arrowsmith. whose end came about noon of that day. Deceased, who was in his 25th year, has been in rather precarious health almost ever since his return from overseas in 1919, and the end was hastened due to an attack of pleurisy the day previous, which in his greatly weakened condition he was unable to combat. The funeral took place on Sunday afternoon to Creston cemetery and was very largely attended, being under the direction of the G.W.V.A., of which he was a member, with Rev. J. A. James conducting the last sad rites. Six members of the local branch of the Veterans officiated as pallbearers..."Bert" as he was familiarly known was born at Kaslo, but with the exception of the time he was overseas, had always made his home with his parents at Creston. Likable [sic] in every way it was only natural that he should be exceptionally popular with the many who knew him, all of whom sympathise fully with his parents and family in the heavy bereavement they have suffered.
