Smith, Thomas Finch (1886–1924)

The death occurred last night, at his residence, Pacific House, 4 Terrace-street, Newcastle, of Mr. Thomas Finch Smith, son of the late Mr. Thomas Smith. The deceased, who was 38 years of age, was a timber merchant, and for the past fifteen years had carried on business at Newcastle with his brother, Mr. Albert Smith.

His health had been gradually failing for the past five years, and latterly his condition had become considerably worse. He was not married. For about five years he was a member of the Newcastle Hospital committee, but owing to the state of his health, was compelled to relinquish his activities in that connection. He was honorary treasurer of the Timber Merchants' Association since its inception, but resigned from that position owing to ill health twelve months ago. Despite his bad health he was of a cheery and amiable disposition. He was well liked, and the news of his death will be received with regret by a large circle of friends. The funeral will leave his late residence tomorrow afternoon for Sandgate Cemetery.
