Sydney John Warters

Another link with the old life of Picton has been snapped in the passing of one of the grand old men, Mr. Sydney John Warters, (old Syd Warters as he was affectionately known) who died at his home in Argyle Street, last Friday, January 2nd, aged 74, after an illness of several weeks.

Born in Sydney, deceased was the eldest child of the late John Edmund and Eliza Warters. He came as a baby to reside in Picton with his parents, and has lived in Argyle Street, ever since.

Mr. Sydney Warters was known far and wide throughout the district, and was highly respected for the strict integrity which was an outstanding quality of his character. He worked as a carpenter and contractor and undertaker all his life, being both zealous and painstaking in all his undertakings.

As a citizen, one could not find a better man. He was one of the original founders of the Picton brass band, which developed under his inspiration, was secretary for many years of Lodge Picton Masonic, and the School of Arts, in which position he was keen and thorough; and was one of the trustees of St. Mark's Church.

A life long member of the Anglican church, he maintained a high Christian standard within his home circle, and in his dealings with men, and by his passing, the church and the community are poorer.

Deceased was the eldest of eleven children, and was always devoted to his parents and brothers and sisters. For 23 years he has acted as a father to them, and they will assuredly miss him.

He was predeceased by Wilfred, Stella (Mrs. Power) and is survived by Otto of Fivedock, Elsie (Mrs. W. A. Crawley) of Undercliffe, Myra (Mrs. Ray) of Wellington Park, Mildred (Mrs. Wilson) of Cronulla, Remie (Miss Warters) of Picton, Vera (Mrs. Terrett) of Goulburn, Ray of Gosford and Neville of Waverley.

During his recent illness he was devotedly attended by his sisters, Miss R. Warters of Picton and Mrs. Terett of Goulburn.

The funeral took place on Saturday afternoon, January 3rd, and was one of the largest and most beautiful ever seen in this district.

Prior to the service in St. Mark's Church, the. Rev. F. A.S. Shaw conducted a service at the house for the family.

A most impressive service was held in the church where a large gathering of citizens and brother Masons of Lodge Picton attended to pay their last respects to one so loved and esteemed.

Representatives from Lodge Bowral, Campbelltown and Camden were also present. During the service the Picton band, in the church grounds, played softly, sacred and solemn music, the strains of which echoed throughout the building.

The Rev. Shaw during the service in the church could not have paid higher tribute to a man, than he did with his heartfelt words, which sentiments were echoed in the hearts of all those 'who had known the deceased.

He said that he was a man among men, honest and reliable, and his word was his bond. He was a man of generous and sympathetic nature and one capable of kindly understanding. There was no one in the district had such a knowledge of Picton and its people.

The Rev. Shaw said that he was a devout member of St. Mark's church,' Sunday evenings found him at service sitting in the back seat. His contributions to the funds were frequent and generous. He also lovingly attended to various repair work to the church building.

He added, that though Mr. I Warters was perhaps a man of few words, his good deeds were I many, and those deeds endeared him to all. Picton will seem strangely different by his absence. He didn't want to die. His illness came as a shock to him, but he had courage and with the Sacrament, came peace.

The Rev. Shaw then extended to his sisters, brothers and relatives the deepest and warmest sympathy of all present, and expressed the hope that the thoughts he had tittered, would in some way warm their hearts and prove a comfort to their minds.

At the conclusion of the service the cortege proceeded to the graveside in the church grounds, where Worshipful Brother E. H. Oakman read the Masonic burial service. Regalia was worn by all members.

After the lowering of the coffin, the Picton band played 'Nearer My God to Thee' and then by special request 'Peace, Perfect Peace.'

The graveside was banked with dozens of beautiful wreaths. We joint with the people of the district in extending our deepest sympathy to his sorrowing relatives.
