Faithfull, Geoffrey Mervyn (1891–1940)

The death occurred in Sydnley last night, of Dr. Geoffrey Falithfull, of Inveralochy. Although he had been in indifferent health of late the news of his death cine as a profound shock to his many friends in the Goulburn district.

The late Dr. Falithfull, who was 49 years of age, was the son of the late Dr. Robert Faithfull, of Inveraochy and Moss Vale, and had spent practically the whole of his life in the district. When a young man he graduted in medicine at the Sydney University, and when the Great War broke out he enlisted and saw service overseas. For many years he had engaged in grazing and was one of the district's best known pastoralists.

Dr. Faithfull was a well-known figure in the days of the Tirranna Picnic Races and also at the carnivals held by the Old Goulburn Polo Club. He was also keenly interested in motor racing; at one time and for several years was the Goulburn Motor Club's patron. In recent years he had interested himself in big game fishing, and had made several visits to South Coast waters in this capacity.

He is survived  by his widow, formerly Miss Pascoe, and two children, Pamela and John. The funeral will leave All  Saints Church, Woollahra, tomorrow morning.
