Kevin Lombe Brooke (1922–1923)

On December 8, Kevin, the infant son of Mr. and Mrs. L. L. Brooke, of the Bank of New South Wales, Collarenebri, passed away. The little child was but eighteen months old, dear little boy, full of brightness and cheerfulness. The sympathy of all classes and creeds of the district goes out to Mr. and Mrs. Brooke and their sorrowing family in their great bereavement. Only recently Mr. Brooke came from Inverell to take over the managership of the local branch of the Bank of New South Wales, and in that short time he has gained the confidence, respect, and esteem of all. The funeral took place on Sunday, December 9, and was largely attended, people coming from near and far in the district to show their respect and to express their sorrow. The little child's father acted as pallbearer, handing first and last the precious care bestowed upon him by the Almighty God, Rev. Father P. M'Dermott recited the burial prayers at the church and graveside.
