HAYMAN, William D.
Westville, May 26 -- One of Westville's leading and foremost citizens, William D. Hayman, passed away this morning at his home, North Main Street. Mr. Hayman had been in failing health for the past few years, and underwent operations and medical treatment at hospitals in Halifax and Kingston, Ont. He was born in Westville 66 years ago, a son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Donald Hayman, and had spent his entire life in Westville, where he was held in the highest esteem and respect by his fellow citizens. For many years in partnership with his brother, Donald Hayman, he conducted the well-known grocery firm of Hayman Brothers on Church Street, but owing to ill health he retired from active business a few years ago. The late Mr. Hayman took an active interest in church welfare. He was formerly associated with the Carmel Presbyterian church, and later the Westville United church, where in the latter congregation he had served as a member of the Board of Stewards for the past number of years. He was also actively associated in the work of the three link fraternity, and was a member of Scotia Lodge, I.O.O.F., for many years. He served at one time as a member of the Westville Town Council. In his immediate family he is survived by his wife, formerly Charlotte Reid, and two daughters, Miss Mae E. Hayman, Westville and Miss Donalda Hayman, until recently a dietitian on the staff of the Knickerbocker hospital, New York city, but who for some time has been in Westville owing to her father's illness. He is also survived by four brothers and four sisters, John, Westville, Donald, Moncton, Archie and Alex, both of Stellarton; Mrs. E.H. MacKay, Miss Annie Hayman, Providence, R.I,; Mrs. T.J. Marshall, Bridgetown, and Miss Jen Hayman, Stellarton. Another sister, Mrs. Charles MacKean predeceased him about ten years ago. Sincere sympathy is expressed for the family, especially Mrs. Hayman, who has today suffered a double bereavement, as word was received by her, that her sister, Miss Elizabeth Reid, had passed away in New York last evening. Mr. Hayman's funeral service will be held Friday afternoon at 3 o'clock and will be conducted by his pastor, Rev. M.A. MacMillan with members of Scotia Lodge, assisting in the service.
