CHARLES  DEAYTON  (1887-1967)
A  Biographical  Note

Mr. Deayton was born on January 1, 1887. He and his wife, Annie, were married in England.

His service in the gospel in many localities, marked by an expansive evangelical spirit, and his help in the reading meetings were greatly valued.

He suffered an acute hearing loss – as I now do – and used aids in both ears.

Being in the same local meeting, we were often privileged to have them as amiable travelling companions to other localities for fellowship meetings or for visiting the saints.

In the early 1960's they decided to return to Winnipeg to be near to family members for needed care in view of their age.

The years from 1959 on were marked by increasing legalism, sectarianism and persecution, from which he and his wife suffered much.

C.D. wrote faithfully, usually enclosing some poems most of which were written in the sleepless night seasons.
