Charles Lyne (1849–1934)

from Daily Advertiser

The death occurred in a private hospital at Wagga early yesterday morning of Mr. Charles Lyne, of 215 Edward street, Wagga, after a short illness, in his 85th year. Mr. Lyne, who for nearly 40 years was stock inspector in the Wagga district, was a son of the late Mr. and Mrs. John Lyne, of Newtown, Hobart. Tasmania, of which State deceased was a native. He had been a resident of Wagga and district for over 50 years After his retirement from the position of stock inspector in 1922, he still kept an active interest in the affairs of the district, and was a familiar figure riding his bicycle in the streets of Wagga up to a week before his death. He suddenly became ill on Wednesday night, and died at 4 o'clock yesterday morning. Mr. Lyne was a very old member of the Riverine Club, Wagga, and was held in high esteem by all who knew him. He is survived by his widow and two sons, Messrs. Clive Kennedy and Eric John Lyne, both of Wagga. The late Sir William Lyne, a distinguished Parliamentarian in State and Federal politics, who was for some years Premier of New South Wales and also a Federal Minister, was a brother. There are none of Mr. Lyne's brothers or sisters living, all having predeceased him. Mr. Lyne was a valued public officer, and had had a varied and extensive career. He was an authority on all stock and diseases of stock, and his services were always willingly made available to stockowners. The funeral will leave the premises of Mr. J. C. McDonald at 11 o'clock this morning for interment in the Wagga cemetery.
