“H.J. Thorne, well-known Vancouver stock broker and former president of the Vancouver Stock Exchange, died suddenly at 8 o’clock this morning from heart trouble at his residence, 1891 Nelson street. [Actually, he had recently moved to 1844 Comox Street].

Although Mr. Thorne had not been in the best of health lately, his death was quite unexpected and proved a great shock to his many friends and business associates.

Born in England about fifty years ago, Mr. Thorne had been a resident of Vancouver for more than twenty-five years. He had always been prominently identified with the business life of the city and was one of the most prominent members of the stock exchange here.

He is survived by his wife, two sons, Ernest, associated in business with him here, and Osborne, who lives in the West Indies, and two daughters, Muriel and Margaret.

The stock exchange closed as a mark of regret.”
