Placide BENIOT, 102, Pictou's oldest citizen died on Tuesday in Sutherland Hospital. Exceptionally active for his years he was known about town on foot this winter, his eyesight was keen and his hearing unimpaired. He entered the hospital about a week ago. Born in Arichat, he came to Pictou as a young man and for 69 years was in the employ of the Pictou Marine Railway. A well-known figure about the town, he will be remembered by hundreds who saw the lobster carnivals in which he was featured as the oldest lobster fisherman and appears in photos and news reels of the event. His wife died about 30 years ago. He is survived by an adopted son, Stoker John T. LeBlanc, R.C.N. with whom of late years he made his home. The funeral was held this morning from Stella Maris Church, of which he was a devout member.
