CONNORS, PATRICK WILLIAM – Blacks Harbour is mourning today the death of its first citizen, P. W. Connors was laid to rest in the village cemetery. Here where he was born and lived his life, he sleeps the last long sleep. The funeral, which was attended by practically everybody in the Harbour and a host from the surrounding country, was held from his home to the Catholic Church where a solemn mass was celebrated by Rev. I. W. Holland. The pal bearers were Grover Bennett, William Hall, Frank Connors, Charles Woodland, John McDowell and Bernard Connors. Patrick W. Connors was born sixty four years ago in Blacks Harbour, the son of James and Mrs. Connors. In his youth he followed the fishing business. A man of tremendous energy he gave always of his best to the great industry with which his name is linked and died practically in the harness, having been ill only a few days. A pioneer in the canning of sardines, together with his brother Lewis, he built the largest factory of its kind in Canada and one of the largest in the world. A thorough knowledge of fish gained in years of winning a livelihood from the deep, he was well prepared when the time came to assume control of the production end of the business. A master of detail, the possessor of a wonderful memory, the success of the firm was due, in a great measure to the intensive attention he gave to that end of the business where every item that entered into production must be given strict attention. Known in the trade as the best judge of fish on the coast, he knew the sardine from the time it left the deep until it was in the can ready for the market. Honest in his dealings with his fellowman he was respected and popular with his employers. In his home life he was an affectionate husband and a loving father. The builder of a big business of which he was the largest stockholder and director, the founder of a community where many live and enjoy happy homes, Mr. Connors died with the knowledge that his work would endure and that his days on earth had been fruitful ones. A widow, six daughters, Mrs. Grover Bennett, Mrs. Edward O’Brien, Anna, Margaret, Mrs. W. I. Hall and Alma are left to mourn. Mr. Connors also left two brothers, Lewis and Frank, one sister, Mrs. Robert Thompson and two step sons, Daniel and John Thompson.
