      An old identity of Colac, in the
      person of Mr. William Willis, died
      at his residence, Colac East, on Fri
      day last, at the age of 70 years. He
      was a member of a family which was
      closely associated with the early his
      ? ? tT.-o 1U- Tnl.n
      Willis, who arrived in Australia in
      1841, first settled in New South Wales
      where he engaged in pastoral activi
      ties for about six years, removing to
      Colac in 1849, his son, William, being
      about four years old at the time.
      The deceased had been engaged in
      farming pursuits for a number of
      years, and was also greatly interested
      in sporting. He leaves a widow and
      a family of four sons and three
      daughters — the Rev. V. Willis (of St.
      Francis' Church, Melbourne), Ber
      nard. Eugene, Everard, Sister Muriel
      (Convent of Mercy, Ascot Vale),
      Queenie and Beatrice — and the deep
      est sympathy is extended to them in
      their affliction.
      The body was conveyed to St.
      Mary's Catholic Church, where Re
      quiem Mass was celebrated by the
      Rev. Father Willis, son of deceased.
      The cortege from the church was a
      lengthy and representative one, and
      the body was laid to rest in the family
      allotment in the Catholic portion of
      the Colac cemetery. The Rev. Father
      Willis, son of deceased, supported by
      the Rev. Fathers Daley and McGloin,
      conducted the service at the grave,
      the coffin-bearers being Messrs. John
      Callanan, H. Powell, A. G. Spark,
      and H. McMahon. The pall was sup
      ported by Messrs. F. Anthonjr, M.
      Willis, jun., Geo. Hills, Geo. Arm
      strong, Jos. McMahon, John Woods,
      G. F. Sydenham, W. McNicol, Alex.
