Deuchar, Lindsay (1866–1915)

The many friends of Mr Lindsay Deuchar will learn with deep regret that he died yesterday afternoon after a comparatively brief illness. The deceased, who was 49 years of age, was the Brisbane manager of the Commercial Bank of Australia Ltd, a position he had held for the past five years. Before coming to Brisbane he held the position of manager of the Brunswick (Victoria) branch and had also managed several of the country and suburban offices of the bank mainly in Victoria. He was a valued servant of his company while among his brother bankers he was recognised as a keenly alert, able and reliable businessman. He was as keen in the pursuit of his hobbies and private affairs as in his business life and in whatever he set out to do whether at work or at play he strove to excel. He was a prominent member of the Brisbane Club and was also a member of the Toowong and New Farm Bowling Clubs and had proved himself an expert at the game of bowls. Mr Deuchar had not been in good health for some time and in the sad news of his son's death while fighting with the Australian Expeditionary Force at the Dardanelles he sustained a blow which perhaps helped to hasten the end. About two months ago he visited the North hoping that the trip would aid in his recuperation but soon after his return he entered a private hospital where he passed away yesterday. He was a son of the late Mr John Deuchar of Gangallan, Queensland, who was one of the pioneer pastoralists of the State. A widow and daughter survive him. The funeral will take place at 3 o'clock this afternoon from his late residence, Wondai, River-road, Toowong, for the Toowong cemetery.
