MR. JAMES T. PARKER

Mr. James Talbot Parker who died in the Wyalong District Hospital early on Tuesday morning last, had been a well-known and highly-esteemed resident of West Wyalong for the past 45 years.

Mr. Parker met with an injury some time ago during the course of his employment by the Bland Shire Council, was admitted to the hospital six weeks ago and underwent an operation.

Deceased, who was 65 years of age was born at Adelong, where his parents, the late Mr. and Mrs, John Parker, were lifelong residents. For about 20 years he resided at Adelong and then went to West Wyalong and engaged in mining operations until the goldfields petered out.

For a time he was a roads and wood contractor and about 34 years age he joined the outdoor staff of the Bland Shire Council. He was a leading hand on that staff for many years and during the war period he joined the staff of the Civil Construction Corps.

With extensive knowledge and experience of construction work he was in charge of big gangs of men at Roto, Parkes and Mulwala. At the conclusion of the war he returned to West Wyalong and re-joined the staff of the Bland Shire Council, in whose employ he remained up to the time of his death.

Mr. Parker was held in high esteem by his fellow employees and had occupied the position of president of the local Shire Employees' Union for many years. He was also held in high regard by the Shire Council and the various engineers under whose supervision he worked for so many years, who recognised his worth as an experienced, dependable and industrious member of the construction staff.

His passing is deeply regretted by a wide circle of friends and acquaintances. The Rev. Canon Butler conducted a short service in St. Barnabas' Church on Wednesday afternoon, after which the representative funeral cortege proceeded to the Wyalong Cemetery.

The Shire Employees' Union was represented by the president (Mr. L. Lynch), the secretary (Mr. H. White) and a considerable, number of members.

Amongst the floral tributes were wreaths from the Bland Shire Council and the Shire Employees' Union. The remains were interred in the Church of England portion of the Wyalong Cemetery, the Rev. Canon Butler officiating at the graveside. The mortuary arrangements were in the hands of Messrs. R. and G. Stephenson.

Deceased is survived by Mrs. Parker, four sons and six daughters: James, of Bathurst, and Athol and Barry, of West Wyalong. The daughters are Mrs. A. J Mc- Glynn, of Bathurst; Mrs. A. Eltham, of Bathurst; Mrs. E. Trahanas of Yass; Mrs. F. Leonard, of Yass; Mrs. E. Adams, of Queensland; and Mrs. B. Keen, of Yass, A son and a daughter predeceased him. Mrs. E. Withers, of Adelong, is a sister, and Mr. Reg. Parker, of Lane Cove, is a brother of the deceased.
