“The funeral of the late Alexander Dallas, who passed away at his home on Cadboro Bay on Tuesday, took place yesterday afternoon from McCall Brothers Funeral Home. A large number of friends attended and the many beautiful floral tributes gave testimony to the esteem in which Mr. Dallas was held by them. Rev. W.G. Wilson, D.D., conducted the service, during which two hymns were sung: “The Sands Of Time” and “Nearer My God To Thee.” The service at the graveside was conducted by the brethren of the A.F. & A.M., of which order the deceased was a life member.  The remains were laid to rest in Royal Oak Burial Park, with the following brethren as pallbearers: Wor. Bro. F.V. Hobbs, Bro. W. Galt, Bro. E. Williams, Bro. W.H. Bland, Bro. G.S. McTavish and Bro. T. Ash.”
