ROSE, Alexander [John]
ROSE - At Halifax, Jan. 22, 1904, after a short but painful illness, John Rose, in his 69th year, leaving one son and one daughter to mourn the loss of a kind and loving father. Funeral from his late residence, 391 Brunswick Street on Sunday afternoon at 3 o'clock. Interment at Camp Hill Cemetery.

The death occurred at 391 Brunswick St. at an early hour last evening of John Rose in his 69 year, who for a number of years was heading man at the H. M. Dockyard. The deceased contracted a cold a few weeks ago which continued to grow worse until last evening when he passed away peacefully. He is survived by one son Charles S., Shipwright at the H. M. Dockyard and one daughter, Miss Sarah, bookkeeper at J. A. Leaman and Co. Branch Gottingen St. The family will have the sympathy of a large circle of friends. The funeral will take place on Sunday afternoon at three o'clock from his late residence.

The funeral took place yesterday of John Rose, who was for some years an employee at H. M. Dockyard, but retired a few years ago. The large attendance at the funeral testified very fully to the esteem in which he was held. His fellow workman acted as pall bearers. The service at the house was conducted by the Rev. J. S. Sutherland, paster of St. John's Church, and was a very impressive one. Deep sympathy is felt for the bereaved son and daughter, and this was indicated in a beautiful collection of flowers sent. A partial list of these is as follows.
Pillow, son and daughter.
Pillow, Mr. T. Zwicker and family.
Harp, Mr. and Mrs. D. G. Thompson.
Wreath, Walter and Mildred
