The AGF Front Page News

It's a sad and reflective day at Atkinson Grain, thinking about our good friend, Royce VanVooren who, I have heard ,passed away yesterday after a lifetime spent farming and raising a family and making a home in Cornwall Township. In his later years he had decided that if it wasn't in Cornwall Township then he really didn't need to see it. He had sailed around the world whild serving his country in the Navy and must've decided then that this was where he belonged. We always enjoyed your company and will certainly miss your smiling face. Rest in Peace Royce. It is somehow fitting that you would pass away on April 1 as you were always fooling us with one thing or another....
