Barrie James Ritchie DAWSON (31/8/2020):

  • Richard Nott advised 2/9/20: Barrie died in a home at St Ives on Monday night. I spent some time with him that day but he was unconscious. We worked at Mullumbimby together 1957-59 and we kept in touch.  His daughter Trish said she would let me know of funeral arrangements probably at either Lindfield or Roseville next week.
    Barrie was accountant at Coffs Harbour manager Cobar and in Loans and Funds for awhile. His wife Edna Moore was in the bank at Kyogle and her brother Calvin Moore was with the bank as well. I think Barrie had a stroke/dementia aged around 87 I think.   

    Mary Lamborn's uncle Ted was manager at Mullum during our days along with Frank Condon whom I have let know.
  • Rowan Raymond-Jones advised: Barrie had a lovely funeral service. Richard Nott and CBCer John Moore (Barrie's brother in law) were there and I represented the Club. Both of Barrie's daughters spoke eloquently as did his grandchildren and each family member had a part in the service.
