MR THOMAS ARMSTRONG PASSES.
A USEFUL LIFE CLOSES.
There were many in Kyneton to whom the news of the death of Mr Thomas Armstrong was accompanied by feelings of profound sorrow. He had lived the greater part of his life in Kyneton, and there are probably few more dearly loved than he. A man of quiet and unobstructive manner, he nevertheless took a large-hearted interest in all which concerned the well-being of his friends, and likewise the town’s advancement. He came to Kyneton in the year 1881, when he joined Mr John Barrow J P, as an employee, in the business of general grocer in Piper Street, and he worked with such energy that he soon won the confidence of all. In course of time the business in which he was so keenly interested passed to Mr J E Andrews J P, who came to this district from Landsborough. Mr Armstrong then succeeded to the position of manager, and he occupied it with trust until the death of his respected employee. The business was again taken over by Mr Farrow, who later took Mr Armstrong into partnership, and afterwards, turned over its entire interest to him.
During his earlier years, he was a splendid specimen of physical manhood and adept at those games of athletics such as “putting on the stone”, which required the exercise of force and muscular development. He was nearly six feet in height and easily scaled 16 stone. For some years past his strength has declined and he has been an acute sufferer for several years until during the past few months when he was laid aside. Medical advice could give him little practical relief, so he passed to his eternal rest.
His was an agreeable nature, and he had proved himself a great force in many ways. He was one of the three returning surviving members of the old Lyceum Dramatic Club, that organisation which had handed over 73 pounds to the Kyneton Fire Brigade on its early formation. Later on he was associated with the Kyneton Dramatic Club, an institution which embraces the memories of Mr B Steinmeyer, Mr James G Davies and Mr J E Andrews, all of whom are now at rest.
Mr Thomas Armstrong, who was a son of the late Mr John Armstrong of Rochford, was early married to Miss Agnes Hair, daughter of the late Mr and Mrs James Hair of Mitchell Street, Kyneton, who is now left to mourn for him. Of the members of his own family, there are two brothers Andrew and James of Rochford, besides four sisters, Miss Mary Murray, Mrs Cook and Miss Eliza Armstrong of Rochford and Mrs Moronay of Sydney.
He was a member of St Andrew’s Church, Kyneton and was a useful officer of that church management, fulfilling variously the office of secretary and treasurer for 14 years. He was for several terms Chief of the Kyneton Caledonian Society, that convivial ? the organization of which he was himself probably the moving spirit. A member of the A O F Court Littlejohn since the 3rd of September 1883, he had passed through all the offices to that of Chief Ranger, and also occupied the posts of valuer and auditor. He also became associated with the Zetland Masonic Lodge, which order accorded him a Masonic Funeral.
The remains of the deceased were laid to rest in the Kyneton Cemetery on Tuesday. The cortege, which was of extreme length moved from his residence, Piper Street, at halfpast two, Mr H W Bromley being the undertaker. On reaching the cemetery the coffin was borne to the graveside by the betheren of the Zetland Lodge. There the Rev Lithgow Tait B A, of St Andrew’s read the service and offered up a prayer of consolation for the bereaved relatives and friends. Following upon this was the burial of the Order, which was conducted by the Rev Raymond Farrer, as chaplain. At this service hymns were sung in tones of severe sorrow, after which the mourners moved apart. Parents: John ARMSTRONG and Jane Symington BUNTINE.
