An old identity of Tumut in the person of Mr. Patrick Eurell, passed away at his residence, Fitzroy-street, on the 21st ult. at the age of 60 years.
Deceased was an Alpine native, and spent the - early years of his life at the late John Cosgrove's station at 'Billylingra,' Monaro.
Subsequently he selected, and after fullfilling resident terms he sold out, and buying his brother's mail coaches, entered into partnership with Mr. Joseph Lake, of Gundagai, and they became Cobb and Co. of the Cootamundra branch line. This was about 1896.
He married Miss Burns, daughter of Mrs, C. Burns, of 'Innis Vale,' Gilmore, the result of the union being three sons, viz., Charles, Joseph and Stanley, and one daughter, Phyllis.
These are left to mourn the loss of a faithful husband and a father who was proud of his little flock.
Though fickle fortune did not smile upon him, he was a man of pronounced opinions, and followed his political creed to the last.
His remains were interred in the Catholic portion of the new cemetery on the 22nd ult. Rev. Father Sharkey officiated at the grave.— R.I.P.
