Deepest Sympathy is extended to the Canton Family Walsh Island on the passing of John Jagger Canton . The Jagger was a great friend of Rhode’s and was evident with the turn out of many from the Parish at his funeral and wake. He will be sadly missed by all who knew him. Jagger’s Funeral mass took place on Friday last at the church of the immaculate Conception Walsh Island followed by burial to the adjoining Cemetery .
May Jagger Rest In Peace.
