Fowler, Arthur Daniel (1856–1928)

The sympathy of the townspeople of Wentworthville has gone out to Mr. R. M. Fowler, manager of the Bank of New South Wales in that town, in the loss of his father, Mr. Arthur Daniel Fowler; who died at his late residence in McIntosh-street, Gordon, on the 11th inst.; after an illness of several months. The late Mr. Fowler was one of the most, widely known postmasters in New South Wales. He entered the service over half a century ago, when he was 18 years of age, and retired about seven years ago. For 40 years he held the position of postmaster, and was located at Bungendore, Jerilderie, Windsor, Wellington, Inverell, Narrandera, and Young. He was highly esteemed in all those centres and particularly in Windsor and Young, where he made many staunch friends. He was an enthusiastic Mason, and a P.M. of Lodge Gordon, and there was no more delighted man than he when, about a year ago, he attended Lodge Wentworthville to witness his son's initiation. The deceased leaves his wife, four sons and two daughters. The sons are Messrs. D. Fowler, of Winton, Queernsland; R. W. Fowler, Wentworthville; H.J. Fowler, Orange, and G. E. Fowler, manager of the Bank of New South Wales at Crow's Nest. The daughters are Mrs. West, of Gordon, and Miss E. Fowler. The remains were interred in tho Northern Suburbs cemetery, after a  service held in St. John's Church by the Rev. Arnold Connelly. The Masonic burial service was conducted by Wor. Bro. H. Horwood.
