Deceased J-K

Alec JAMES (17/9/2007)

  • Kevin Meyer notes: There is an A.N.James of Cowra in the deaths of SMH today. I am pretty sure that is Alec James ex CBC and manager at Mona Valle and others including Marrickville.

David Layton JAMES (3/5/2017)


  • David Wyndham advised: On a personal note I knew David well and I am sure I can speak for members when I say he was held in very high regard throughout the bank for his knowledge, abilities and general good mate qualities. He will be sadly missed by all members.


Sheila JAMES (8/2007)

  • Geoff McIntyre advised of Sheila's passing at the meeting on 3rd September 2007.

Douglas Eston JOB (2/1/2015)

  • It is with regret that, particularly at this time of the season, I have to advise the passing of Doug Job, one of our senior members.
    Many of our members of whom would have passed through Canberra Office, during his long sojourn there in the 1950's and 60's, would have known Doug well.

     Michael Hook

    Ken WOOD:   Many of our CBC'ers would have worked in Canberra branch during his long sojourn there in the 1950's and 60's. I attach a death and funeral notice. Perhaps you could advise all members of this.
    Jon BLISSETT:   Sorry to hear of the passing of Doug Job. I worked with Doug at Kingston Branch in 1963 He was accountant with Ian Middleton Manager.  Others on the staff included Ian Mckenzie, Charles Bastany and Ean Mackie. Have another family funeral in Sydney on the same day therefore will be unable to attend.

  • Rt. Rev Brian IVERACH:   Yes, Doug was a permanent implant at Canberra Office.  As the some-time coach and ardent supporter of Eastern Suburbs Rugby team, a rag tag collection of Barton House bank-johnnies and public servants, he managed to guide us somehow in the seasonal round wars against RMC Duntroon. Doug is dearly loved by all of us.  He encouraged all of us 'to give it a go’.

  • Max VARDY :   Remember him well in my first stint on the relieving staff in Civic Centre. Gentleman. Great guy.
    Ralph BOOKER:   I was sorry to learn of the passing of Doug Job. During my time at Canberra Office (1959/63) he was very much part of all the many good times the staff shared.  Inter Bank cricket, tennis social drinks at the Civic and Canberra Hotels and a few Saturday night parties on the premises (provided all was A1 on Monday morning and the “Board Room Table” untouched). Doug’s mates had nicknamed him “Punchie” but he would never tell me why.

Gary JOSEY (14/2/2009)

  • David Lindsay advises: Will be attending the Funeral on Thursday 19th February 2009 of Gary Josey . Gary was a long time Officer in Brisbane and loved Sport .and was loved by many Customers.
    He will be sadly missed.
    He organised the Melbourne Cup Syndicate competition for the past 30 years of which all members are ex CBC and his attendance at the last one in the first Sunday in November will long be remembered.

June JUDD (5/6/2015)

  • Joe Judd rang me to inform me of June’s death today.
    She was in the Bank herself. Unfortunately I  don’t know her maiden name. The Funeral will be at Palmdale at Ourimbah next  Wednesday at 12 noon.
     She has been unwell for several years and for 12 months in a Nursing Home.  Her death is probably a happy release as she was suffering from Dementia.
    Joe lives at Bateau Bay.  I will be attending the Funeral.  Regards John Ramsay

  • June joined the bank at Oxford Street in 1957, aged 15.

David Ian KENDALL (27/10/2017)

  • John Ness            Ian joined the bank at Wollongong in 1962 and was Manager at Double Bay.

He had kidney cancer 3 years ago which they got rid of but it metastasized to his lungs and at the end he was unable to breathe. 

  •  Bob Handel          His wife Evelyn will be known to many Officers who spent time in Mrs Russell's boarding house at Hereford Street, Forrest Lodge. Evelyn was Mrs Russell's Daughter.

     Mike Hook            Ian was the junior at Wollongong (I think he started there). He was true blue, a caring fellow.  It looked like he had seen off those difficulties.   R I P Ian.  

  • Audrey KENNY (25/9/2011)

    • Rowan Raymond-Jones advised on 26th September 2011: Sadly, I have to inform you that Audrey Kenny died yesterday morning. Bobby Smith informed me this morning, and said the funeral notice will be in the  Herald on 27th.  Audrey was a life member, and an avid supporter of our Club.

    • Sorry to hear of Audrey's passing.  I remember her very well as she was recruited from Waltons to work in the Bankcard Credit Control set up. She was one of a number who came to us from Waltons at that time when we were setting up Bankcard. She was a very well respected member of the team. I think it was the late Peter Hay who brought her to the Bank.  Regards Ian Holston

    Richard KERR-TAYLOR (22/8/1953-23/7/2010)

    • Eddie Smart advised Gwen McBeth on  30/11/2010:  More sad news. Richard passed away on 23rd. July last after a bout with cancer. After his death a brief service was held at Mulqueens Funeral Services Camperdown, chapel before his cremation at Ballarat on 27th July.
      Richard spent a lot of his career on the Relieving Staff mostly in the Western and the South Western parts of Victoria. He lived in Camperdown from the mid 1980's.
      Although I knew Richard rather well, I was not aware of his death until last Friday, he was a bit of a loner. I am sending you this email because I have not seen any prior notice of his death either through the usual emails or Newsletters since his demise.
      Although this news is old I am sure some of Richard's old CBC friends would not know of his death.

    Elva KNOX (4/2006)

    • Kevin Meyer advises that Elva Knox died aged 100. Elva was the widow of H. K. (Johnny) Knox who was manager Penrith for a lot of years in the 70s. She was the mother of Elaine (ex Branch Secs) and mother in law of the late Ian Cadell (ex Regional Manager).
