Jack Lenehan, n.d.

Mr John Lenehan of Alma Street, Hurstville, died last Friday. The deceased, who was one of the oldest residents of Hurstville, was one of the old stalwarts of the Labour movement when its ideals were different from what they are to-day. As an officer of the Old Eight-Hour Day Celebrations Committee he was very popular. He was also a Past Grand and trustee of the Loyal St. George Lodge, M.U.I.O.O.F., Hurstville. The funeral took place last Saturday, the interment being made in the Catholic portion of Woronora Cemetery. A large number of relatives, friends, and members of friendly societies, were present at the graveside.
