Biography contributed by Sharyn Roberts

Residents of Wallerawang and Portland will regret to learn of the
death of Mr. Jack Baldwin, aged 55 years, in the Portland hospital
on Monday night.
Mr. Baldwin, a highly respected and popular resident, was born in
Hay, and came to the district four years ago as resident engineer in
charge of the Fish River Water Scheme.


A returned soldier from World War 1, Mr. Baldwin had been in
hospital for two weeks prior to his death.


The funeral moved from the parlours of Messrs. Matthews and Lemon, after a service by the Rev. Stuart Maclntyre, interment taking place in the Presbyterian portion of the Piper's Flat cemetery.
Indicative of the high esteem in which he was held were the particularly large number of floral tributes and the large attendance
of residents from 'Wang and Sydney. Mr. W. Wade, president of the
'Wang branch, represented the R.S.L., whilst the coffin was draped with the Union Jack. The pall-bearers were Messrs. H. Small, S. McGrath, W. Wade, L. Simpson, A. Sheringham and D, Hanrahan.
