63. Otho George Golsby

Good Citizen Passes
The death occurred suddenly at his home in Brisbane Street on Sunday morning of Otho George Golsby, at the age of 65 years. Deceased had attended his business in Talbragar Street, until 9 o'clock on the previous evening, and had then retired for the night. Shortly after 1 o'clock, he left his bed and expired a few minutes later. Deceased was a well-known citizen, having conducted a business in Dubbo for many years. He was a Masonic Past Master of Lodge Macquarie and a member of Dubbo Bowling Club. The late O. G. Golsby was born at Caloola, N.S.W., and had lived the whole of his life in the State. Married at Mudgee to Miss Alice Wilton, he is survived by a widow and two daughters, Nada (Mrs. J. Handcock, Marrickville) and Zena. Messrs.

'The funeral cortege left -Holy Trinity at 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon, after a service at the church conducted by the Rev. C. W. Leavers, who also officiated at the obsequies. Lodge Macquarie held a Lodge of Sorrow at the Masonic Temple prior to the funeral, and brethren marched in the cortege. The Masonic service was conducted by Wor. Bro. F. Fudge, W.M., at the graveside. The funeral was very large and fully representative of the business and social interests of the community. C. J. Shakespeare & Sons had charge of the funeral, a special car
carrying the beautiful floral wreaths, while the hearse was laden with flowers. At the service in Holy Trinity Church, the Rector, a P.D.G.I.W. of Lodge Macquarie, based his remarks on the lines: 'He has left this life to go to the great Lodge on high, where the blessed live in perpetual peace. He paid a high tribute to the departed townsman, concluding with: 'Standing here amid this bower of beautiful flowers, the last gift of sincere friends, may I extend the sympathy of all to the bereaved family in the loss
of a brother, who had been faithful in his home, clean and just in his business transactions, one of the best of sportsmen and a worthy citizen. As, later, we will be dropping our tributes ol' evergreen into the grave, symbolical of the immortality of the soul, we can assure the family that we consider none more worthy to receive them.' The hymns, 'Nearer, My God, to Thee' and 'Abide with Me,' were sung, Miss Raven officiating at the organ. The pall-bearers were Wor. Bros. G. A. Henderson, W. Ellis, A. S, Whittle, J. H. Murphy, W.
