Mr. Willoughby served three terms as an alderman, and his strong common sense, and his thorough knowledge of the business, made him one of the most useful members who ever sat at a council board. In politics he has always been a consistent Conservative, and was a close friend, and staunch supporter of the late Nicholas Flood Davin. In religion he is Methodist and has long been identified with Freemasonry. Quiet, unostentatious, attending carefully to his many business affairs, he is generosity and kindness itself, and one of the worthiest of our Western citizens.
