George Henry Levett (1846–1932)

Death claimed another old-timer last week in the person of Mr. George Henry Levett, of the Wombat Road. He was aged 90 and was one of the oldest residents of the district. For many years he was the leading road contractor.

Born at Maitland, the late Mr. Levett was married at Young, at the age of 25, to Eliza Rhodes, who predeceased him by many years.

He leaves a family of three sons George, Fred, and John, and Etty. Fred, is a returned soldier on Kingsvale, and Miss Ettie Levett nursed her father for many years.

The late Mr. Levett was widely respected. He lived a quiet home life and took no active part in public affairs.
