He was keenly interested in political and municipal matters, being Mayor of Bathurst for several terms. He is survived by five sons and one daughter, Mrs. Arthur J. Litchfield, the former include Mr. B. J. Halliday, chairman of the Goulburn Local Land Board, Mr. George Halliday, solicitor, of Murwillumbah, and Dr. J. C.
