Russell Mileham Wild (1855–1937)

Mr. Russell Mileham Wild, a former resident of Goulburn, who for many years lived at Elmwood, Lagoon Street, died in a private hospital at Bondi last night.

Mr. Wild was born at Wild Oaks, Picton, and was for many years associated with Inglis and Sons in their Picton business. He came to Goulburn 35 years ago and was employed in the railway service up till the time of his retirement in 1925.

Since the death of his wife in 1933, Mr. Wild has resided with his son at Bondi, but was a frequent visitor to Goulburn. His death will be unexpected by his many Goulburn friends, who saw him less than two months ago, when he was in good health for a man of 82 years. He is survived by two daughters, Mrs. F. B. Fitzpatrick (Goulburn), and Mrs. R. Macartney Noake (Gormandale, Vic.), and one son, Russell (Bondi). Another son, Harold, predeceased him in 1919. Mr. Wild will be buried at Rookwood to-morrow.
