OBIT: William Finn died 1928 Ontario

Obituary for W.(William) Finn

January 7, 1928

Called to Higher Service
Color-sergeant Finn, Ridgetown (Kent Co., Ontario, Canada)

In the early hours of Sunday morning, November 27th, Color-Sergeant W.(William) Finn, suddenly passed away. Our comrade was a faithful follower of the lamb, and an example to many because of his readiness to pray and testify. Before his end the Color-Sergeant was able to give the blessed assurance that all was well with his soul.

On Tuesday afternoon, November 29, Adjutant Harrison conducted an impressive Funeral service at the Citadel. All present were moved as the Adjutant spoke of the veteran's faithfulness to the Flag at all times. The Band played softly the promoted comrade's favorite song, "My Jesus I love Thee," after which Mrs. Adjutant Harrison and Young People's Sergeant-Major L. Down rendered very sweetly in duet, "The Beautiful Land." The large assemble, as well as many floral tributes, testified to the affection in which our comrade was held. Adjutant Harrison committed the remains to the grave in Greenwood Cemetery.---M.W.C.
