Obituary - Mr. Cecil Loy
22 November 1949 The Tumut and Adelong Times
Tumut friends of Mr. Cecil Loy will regret to hear of his death which occurred at Prince Henry Hospital on Saturday last.
The late Mr. Loy took ill about two months ago but delayed seeking medical advice.
Finally he journeyed to Sydney to consult a specialist and subsequently was admitted to hospital there.
He was treated for meningitis but his condition gradually worsened and he passed away on Saturday as stated.
Deceased was born at Tumut 45ye&rs ago and was a son of the late Mr. and Mrs. W. Loy.
After his schooling he entered the general storekeeping business of Yee Hing and Co, with which his father had once been associated, and for the past fifteen years he had been manager of the business, a position which he carried out with extreme thoroughness.
When he became ill the loss of his services to the establishment was so great that the owner, Mr. W. Shai Hee, decided to sell the business.
The late Mr. Loy was very popular and was a regular attendant at dances and balls in this and surrounding towns and country centres.
One brother Bert (Tumut) and two sisters Ruby (Mrs. Long) and Mabel (Mrs. Lucas), both of Sydney, survive.
The remains were cremated at a Sydney crematorium yesterday
