Obituary:- Mr William Goodyer
RIP, ONE LESS, ANOTHER PIONEER PASSES
That sturdy hand of our grand old pioneers has been further depleted by the death in Nelson at 2am on Thursday of Mr William Goodyer, one of the districts earliest settlers.
Born in Victoria 71 years ago, the late Mr Goodyer came to NZ (1868) with his parents, through the port of Otago in the early mining days, At the age of 14, he came to Murchison where he followed mining pursuits at Kanieri, Kumara, Reefton and the Lyell. He arrived in Murchison 40 years ago, working through on the now main highway from the Lyell to the Owen. He again took up mining in this distict, but for a number of years had been doing only odd work. During the early days here, the late Mr Goodyer was a much sought after musician for the dances, the concertina and the accordian being a veritable talking machine in his hands. He was really a gifted musician He had a wonderful memory and could recall many exciting experiences of the early days.
It is about two years ago that the late Mr Goodyer first took ill and during last winter he suffered severely but for the last two months his suffering was intense.
The late Mr Goodyer was a man held in the highest esteem by all who had the pleasure of his aquaintance. Of the highest integrity, he always gave full value to anything received.
He is survived by a sorrowing widow and family of two daughters and five sons: Mrs Hunt (New Plymouth) Mrs Johnston (Murchison) Messrs Joe Goodyer (Murchison) A Goodyer (Dunedin) C Goodyer (Inangahua) Jack Goodyer (Riwaka) and Jim Goodyer (Hawera) Also by two sisters, Mrs Colvin Westport and Mrs Vinsen Wellington and one brother Mr C Goodyer Katikati. To these the sincere sympathy of the whole community is extended in their irreparable loss. The interrment took place on Saturday afternoon at the Murchison Cemetery when a lengthy cortage followed the remains of our respected to his last resting place.
