AUSTIN STANTON - The Pakenham community was shocked and saddened on Feb. 8, to learn of the sudden death of Austin Stanton in the Carleton Place Hospital. Austin was born at Fitzroy Harbour January 13, 1924, son of Patrick Stanton and the late Mary Ann Carroll. On Sept. 17th, 1947 he married the former Theresa O'Neill, who survives, with three sons, Peter, Paul and Leo all at home. A well driller by trade he served the area in that capacity for 29 years. The long queues outside the Kerry Funeral Home, Almonte, on the evenings of the 9th and 10th were eloquent testimony to the popularity of Austin and the esteem in which he was held. A devout Catholic, Austin always looked out beyond his faith and saw in every man his brother, a being loved by Christ as he was, this being
quite evident with the presence of Rev. W. Henley, Rev. C. Conliffe, Rev. Roberts and Rev. M. McBride at his funeral service. There was warmth in his friendship and sincerity that never waned. A fine family man, he was proud of his three sons and although he had not lived to see them in manhood he has left them we very well believe without fear for their future. He stood by them and they will stand for him. The funeral was held on Friday, Feb. 11th, at 10:30 to St. Peter Celestine's Church,
Pakenham. Rev. K. Milaney officiated, assisted by Father Arnold Stanton and Father J. Whelan. Burial took place in Indian Hill Cemetery. Honorary pallbearers were Bernice Noonan, Lawrence Kennedy, Lloyd Timmins, John Early, W. J. Smith and R. A. Stewart. Acting pallbearers: Doug
Deugo, Bob Dowd, Peter MacFarlane, Keith Miller, Hugh Grace and Harry McGee.
