Frederick Irving Groombridge played a large part in keeping up the roads and sewers in the former Town of Weston and later, the former Borough of York. (The Borough of York became a city in 1983.) In 33 years of service he held a number of positions involving maintenance of roads, sewers and sanitation, and was once honoured for never having missed a day of work. He was superintendent of works in Weston for many years, and then held a similar position on the Borough of York until his retirement in 1977, after which he acted as a consultant to the borough’s council. Frederick Groombridge, born in Maple in 1912, died on December 10, 1988 at the age of 76.
