VEY, John – The passed away on Sunday at Southport, Trinity Bay, in the person of Mr. John Vey, one whom for good sterling qualities it is hard to beat. Mr. Vey was one of the old school, upright, honest and just in all his dealings, and will be sadly missed by many. The writer knew Mr. Vey for over forty years and can testify to the above. For his widow and children the deepest sympathy is felt.
