End of era for tinsmithing

Frank Anderson, who ran a tinsmithing business in Inwood died Friday.

He had just shut down his business in the fall after 49 years. He didn’t quite make it to his 50th anniversary.

His business became a hub for farmers in this Lambton County hamlet as he also did backhoe work and other jobs. His store was stocked full of supplies needed by the local agriculture community.

For the past several years, Anderson’s shop was also used for the local post office. People came in every day to get their mail and they could always find Frank sitting behind his desk with his dog close by.

Anderson always greeted people with a smile and talked about the day’s news. He was content in his job and it showed. He served the community faithfully for so many decades and he was rewarded this fall with a citizenship award.

Frank, you will be missed.
