Clark, Neil Robert (1912–1953)

A well-known farmer of Farm 493, Colando, and a member of a highly respected family in this district, Mr. Neil Robert Clark passed away in the Leeton District Hospital yesterday morning, aged 41 years. He had been a patient in the District Hospital for four months. Born at Yarrawonga (Victoria), deceased had been on the irrigation area for 27 years. In the days of his youth he was a keen cricketer, and in later years, until his health broke down, was a keen participant in bowls; and was greatly interested in the Masonic Lodge.

The late Mr. Clark, who never married, is survived by four brothers and two sisters, David (solicitor), Bill, Duncan, Ron, Mrs. Mansfield and Mrs. Chapple, all of Leeton.
