TRURO, June 24 - Word has been received by Fred W. Pettis, 46 Wood Street of the death of his brother Glenn Pettis which occurred at a hospital in Calgary, Alberta, June 13, following a major operation the previous week.
Born in Parrsboro 56 years ago Mr. Pettis went to the Canadian West before the First World War. He enlisted with a Winnipeg regiment, and following his return from Overseas service, accompanied by his English war bride, he visited his parents in Parrsboro. He then took up his residence in Alberta where for years he has been engaged in cattle ranching and conducted a business in the town of Erskine. His last visit to his native town was in the winter of 1948, when he spent a few days with his brother, Fred in Truro.
Surviving are his wife, and a son Keith and daughter Joan, both married and living in Calgary. Besides his mother in Parrsboro, there are seven brothers and three sisters, Harry in Prince George, B.C.; Norris, in Winnipeg; Fred in Truro; Frank in Denver, Colorado; Lorne, Thornton and Murray in New York, and three sisters: Mrs. T. E. MacRae, in Brighton, Mass.; Mrs. Lester Davis, of San Francisco, who is now visiting her mother in Parrsboro, and Mrs. R. F. Spear, in Brookline, Mass. Also surviving is a half-brother, Wylie Pettis in California.
