      LOCKYER DISTRICT. LAIDLEY. Saturday.
      Death of Mr. B. E. Parfitt.
      At midnight on Wednesday, less than an hour after admission, the death occurred in the Lockyer General Hospital of Mr. Benjamin Edward Parfitt. Death was due to a stroke. He had been ill for a few weeks, but until a few days before his death nothing serious was anticipated. The late Mr. Parfitt, who was 43 years of age, was a native of Laidley. His chief hobby was greyhound racing, otherwise he lived a quiet, retired life. Ever since he was a lad he had been employed at Gunn's butchery, Laidley, and was known as a faithful employee. The late Mr. Parfitt is survived by his widow and one son. His mother is still alive and lives at Laidley. There are also two brothers, Messrs. Harry (Samford) and Robert (Mitchelton); and four sisters, Mesdames H. Jergensen (Toowoomba), Herman and Charles Heisner (Blenheim), G. Manthey (Laidley). The remains were laid to rest in the Laidley Cemetery yesterday, Rev. J. S. Roach officiating.
