Parker, William James (1847–1919)

Mr. William James Parker, who died at his residence, Belmont, on Monday, in his 72nd year, was well-known both on Lake Macquarie and Tuggerah. He arrived on the lake from Sydney 34 years ago, and in his long association with the district had made many friends. There was testimony to this in the great number of people who journeyed from all parts of the district to attend his funeral on Wednesday afternoon. He was buried at Belmont, the officiating minister being the Rev. R. D. Pontifex, who at the graveside referred to the sterling qualities of the deceased. Mr. Parker leaves a widow and family who have received many expressions of sympathy.
