30 March 1945
It is with deep regret that many friends will learn of the death of Donald A Kennedy, 2 Calbost, on Saturday 17th March at the age of 30 years. A son of Mr and Mrs Donald Kennedy, he had served in the Navy for some time until he was discharged on health grounds. Then he was employed in Stornoway by Mr D G Mackenzie and became quite well-known to those engaged in the tweed trade.
Some months ago, he was obliged to give up his employment and return home. He was a very popular lad as was shown by the large attendance at his funeral to Gravir Cemetery, including people who had travelled from Stornoway and other parts of the Island to be present. The service was conducted by Rev Mr Macleod, Free Church, Gravir. Great sympathy is felt for the parents and the four sisters and brother who survive. Donald Angus is the fourth son whom the family have lost. The oldest son was lost in the last war.
