Harry P Fitch, 29, died at the family residence on West Ninth Street this Wednesday morning at two o'clock, at the age of twenty nine years. Mr. Fitch died of sarcoma after an illness of a year's duration, although confined to his bed only three days. He was the youngest living son of Mr. and Mrs. Edwin Spencer Fitch, being born in Hastings October 1, 1868, and always having lived there.

He was married in Hastings on January, 20 1892 to Miss Jennie H Cook, who with one son of 18 months still survives him. Mr. Fitch has always been a most conscientious, honorable and upright citizen who was quite popular in the community, and was a most kind and loving husband and father. Through all his illness he always attempted to look on the hopeful side of life. His long residence in our midst had endeared him to a host of friends here by whom his death is sincerely mourned, who extend their sympanthy to the bereaved family. He will be truly missed.

The funeral will be held on Sunday afternoon at two o'clock from the Baptist Church, the Reverand WG Trower officiating, assisted by the Reverand HJ Harrington. Interment will be at Lakeside Cemetery.
