Colin Raymond Geddes (1879–1945)

The death took place on Wednesday last of Mr. Colin Geddes of "Moora Moora," 25 Bannerman Street, Cremorne. Deceased, who was 66 years of age, spent his boyhood days in Warialda, being a son of the late Mr. W.B. Geddes, and a brother of Mr. W.B. Geddes, now Public Trustee. He entered the service of the Bank of New South Wales at Warialda, when the existing building adjoining the Royal Hotel was occupied by the Branch as its premises. For many years, until he retired 12 months ago owing to ill-health, the late Mr. Geddes was Manager of the Branch at the corner of Market and York Streets in Sydney.

Although long removed therefrom deceased always evinced an interest in his native town, latest evidence of this being the receipt by Rev. W.J. Powell a few weeks ago of a cheque for £50 towards, the Church of England Building Fund.

A wife and a son and daughter survive .
