Death of a husbandHarold John Patman
March 6, 1935

Note: Mr. Harold John Patman

Mr. Harold John Patman The Mudgee district lost one of its finest young characters when Mr. Harold John Patman died in a local private hospital yesterday morning, aged 34 years. A couple of months ago Harold was stricken with appendix trouble in an aggravated form, and he underwent an operation which proved successful. The complaint, however, was deep-seated, and the complications which set in could not be combatted, although the best of nursing and medical attention were available. The news of his passing will come as a painful shock to hundreds of district people, for Harold was genuinely admired on all sides. In the field of sport he occupied a high and honorable place. A gallant fighter and a generous opponent, he fought with all his heart for victory, but, if the fates willed otherwise, he accepted defeat with the spirit of a true sportsman. On the tennis courts he excelled, and his many glorious engagements in championship tournaments in Mudgee will long be remembered by those who were privileged to be present. Practically his last appearance was in the doubles championship at the New Year journey in Victoria Park, when, although a little out of sorts, he assisted brother Alan to win the honors. Probably the long-sustained contest took more out of him than he knew, but, it was characteristic of the man that he should give of his best, under any circumstances. He was an ornament to the game, and his memory will be held in reverence by all who had the pleasure of his acquaintance. He also played cricket with the same enthusiasm, and his comrades will miss him sorely. He was the son of Mr. and Mrs. W. ("Don"), Patman, of Tunnabutta, and resided in that centre practically all his life. In addition to his sorrowing parents, two brothers and a young widow are left to mourn. To the latter, in particular, fate has dealt many cruel blows, for in recent years death has taken her father, mother, sister and husband, and the intensity of her grief is great. The "'Guardian" extends its deepest sympathy to the bereaved ones, who may, however, find some consolation in the knowledge that the loved one who has gone before will live forever in the memory of his friends. The funeral took place in the Church of England portion of the Mudgee Cemetery this morning, after a service in the church conducted by the Rev. L.C. S. Walker, who also officiated at the graveside. Addressing the large congregation in the church, the Rev. Mr. Walker paid a striking tribute to the late Mr. Patman, saying that the great number of people in the church was a testimony of the esteem to which he was held by the community. His popularity, continued the Minister, was due not only to his ability as a tennis player but to his worth and his high character. He was the bravest sufferer to whom the speaker had ever encountered. The sorrowing widow had also displayed wonderful courage, and loving watchfulness during her husband's illness. A large number of the late Mr. Patman's sporting associates marched in the funeral procession, and acted as pall-bearers. The floral tributes were both numerous and beautiful. Funeral arrangements were In the hands of Messrs J. C. Swords and Son. Mudgee Guardian, Thursday 7 March 1935, p. 3. Harold Patman Obituary
