In the sudden death of George N. Holliday at his home on Byron Street North, on Saturday, August 9, the end came to a long life of one who in his youth had a wide circle of friends and acquaintances in this part of Ontario County, many of whom have predeceased him.

A resident of Brooklin from early childhood and in general store business there, and later at Ashburn, and with a well established reputation as a singer he was well known in both rural and town sections. At the turn of the century he went to Alberta as a rancher and later had a farm near Summerbery, Sask., but for reasons of health he returned to Ontario and occupied a farm at Myrtle from which he moved to Whitby two years ago.

He was one of five children in the family of the late T. J. Holliday. and is survived by his wife, the former Della Muir of Port Dalhousie; one sister Mrs. J. P. Roger; Orillia, W. A. Holliday, Whitby; and T. F. Holliday, Toronto. The funeral today was conducted by Rev. D. Marshall of St. Andrew's Church, assisted by Rev. C. Malcolm of the United Church. Burial was in Groveside Cemetery.
