He has followed minimum pursuits and has been a resident practically all his life, residing at Rimu for many years and rearing a large family. He leaves a widow and family of six daughters (Mrs O Wildbore of Rimu, Mrs J Adams of Westport, Mrs Nikatun of Auckland, Mrs A Craig of 3 Mile, Mrs A O’Brien of Hokitika and Miss Ellen Growcott of Rimu) three sons (Thomas of Rimu, William overseas on active service and John of Hokitika) sister (Mrs T Borkin of Upper Hutt and three brothers (Abe of New Plymouth, Henry of Hokitika and Thomas of Ruatapu). The wife and family will have the deep sympathy of many friends in their bereavement. AWMM
