Reginald Kermode (1884–1906)

Many of our readers will learn with much regret of the death at "Corona," Battery Point, on Tuesday, 8th inst., of Mr. Reginald Kermode, second son of the late Mr. William Archer Kermode, Mona Vale, Ross. The deceased only last year, on becoming of age, voyaged to the old country to see relatives and friends, and while there contracted a cold which settled on his lungs. He returned to Hobart in January last, and for some time his health improved, but unfortunately a relapse eventuated, from which he never rallied, and on Tuesday, shortly before dawn of a beautiful day, he passed to rest. The deceased was highly esteemed for his many good qualities and kindly nature, and his death at such an early age will be greatly deplored, and heart-felt sympathy will be extended to his relatives in their sad bereavement. The funeral took place at Cornelian Bay on Thursday, where the deceased was laid to rest amidst every token of respect and esteem.
