The Gazette and Chronicle (Whitby) December 21, 1916


On Saturday last (Dec. 16) the death occurred at lot 20, con. 7, Whitby Township, of George T. Holman, in his 64th year. Mr. Holman had been ill with angina pectoris and heart trouble for some time, and his death therefore was not, unexpected. He was born on the farm next to that of Mr. Wm. Dryden and has lived in this vicinity all his life. He came to be regarded very highly for his honest, upright life, and was a prominent member and Treasurer for many years of the Baptist Church. He has been at Maple Shade Farm, the home of the late Hon. John Dryden and now of his son Mr. W. A. Dryden for thirty years. Mr. Holman is survived by one son and three daughters. The son, Frank, is a member of the 182nd Battalion. Two brothers survive. The funeral took place on Monday afternoon from the home of his brother Jos. Holman, East Whitby, the service being conducted by Rev. Geo. A. McLean, pastor of the Baptist Church. Interment was made in the Baptist cemetery on Con. 7.
