Obituary of William Henry Smith
A life long resident of Adelong, William Henry Smith, passed away in 
the Tumut Nursing Home on 25 October, 1984. He was 84 years of age and
is survived by his wife Thelma, to whom he was married for almost 60 
years. They had a family of five children, fourteen grandchildren and 
13 great grandchildren. 
In his youth he worked with his father cutting wood for the gold mining
dredges and, when the mines closed, he worked on farming properties in
the district. For a period in the 1930's he worked on road construction
before joining the Ellerslie Station workforce, where he remained until
the property was subdivided for soldier settlement. 
Too young for the First World War, and too old for the Second, he 
served in the local C.M.F. and was renowned for his accuracy with a 
rifle. As a young man he was a keen tennis player and foot runner, but
his great interest was in horses, and he rode successfully in the 
jumping events of the local shows, and also in the buckjumping events 
around the district. 
In later years his main interests centred around his home and family, 
and he enjoyed eight years of retirement before declining health caused
him to enter the Nursing Home ten months before his demise.
