"William McKim (65), married, a returned soldier, died suddenly at his home in Samford Road, Enoggera, on Saturday. He was pottering about the house when he complained of feeling ill. He lay down on a bed, and a doctor was summoned, but he was dead before the doctor arrived. Death was due to natural causes." - from the Brisbane Sunday Mail 16 Jun 1935 (nla.gov.au)
