OBITUARY - Henry Phillips died 28 January 1913
One of the district's grand old men was Henry Phillips of Sherwood,
Uriarra, who at the patriarchal age of 90 years passed suddenly away
on Wednesday morning last. He was fairly strong and active for his
advanced years and, old as he was, his end came not of senile decay.
Dr Richardson was called for on the day named, to come out to the old
man, and he hastened with full speed of a motor cars best, and he
arrived only to find his patient recovering from an attack of angina
pectoris. While yet ministering to his relief the symptons of a second
attack appeared, this time not to be staved off by medical skill, for
to this attack he succumbed.
Mr Henry Phillips was a very old resident of the district and was for
many years postmaster of uriarra. The post office was, at the time of
his control, located at the homestead of Uriarra, where he resided.
Having, however, selected land at Sherwood he continued to walk daily
to and fro to attend to his postal duties until only a few years ago,
when he felt the task too arduous, and consequently resigned his
office. While at Uriarra he acted also in the capacity of school
teacher and bookkeeper for the establishment.
Mr Phillips was a gentleman of superior intellect and of wide and
varied information. He was keen on politics and took a keen interest
in parliamentary procedure. He was one of natures gentlemen of a
decidedly religious turn of mind and lived in the profound respect
of all who had the pleasure of his acquaintance. He leaves a widow,
one son and two daughters to mourn their loss of a wise counsellor
and father, and a good husband. Mr H Lazarus was the undertaker.
