Mr Leslie Vernon (Jim) Johnson

The death took place in Tumut District Hospital on Thursday night last at 10 o'clock of a well-known identity of Blowering and Tumut, in the person of Mr Leslie Vernon (Jim) Johnson at the age of 59 years. He had suffered from heart trouble in recent months and his demise followed a stroke at his home on the previous Tuesday.

The late Mr Jim Johnson was born at Tumut and was a son of the late Mr and Mrs J.C. Johnson of Jones' Bridge, Blowering.

He received his education at the old Blowering School and on reaching man hood he worked on the Sydney trams for three years before returning to the family property, "Irok", at Jones' Bridge where his ailing father needed help. Mr Jim Johnson remained on the property and carried it on with millet and corn growing until it was sold nearly two years ago. He then purchased a home in Merryvale Street and moved into town to live.

Twenty-nine years ago at Haberfield he married Miss Mary Brown Augusta Brown, by whom he is survived. No children were born to the union. There is also one brother, Arthur, of Tumut, surviving.

When at Blowering the late Mr Johnson took a keen interest in local affairs. He was secretary of the committee which raised money for the erection of the public hall at Blowering in the 1930's and was ever to the fore in the organisation of public functions and dances in the hall in the following years.

In his younger days he was a keen cricketer and tennis player and after taking up residence in Tumut had become an ardent bowler as a member of the Tumut Bowling Club.

The largely-attended funeral took place on Saturday last after a service at All Saints' Church of England and internment was made in the C of E portion of the Tumut cemetery. Mourners were present from Temora, Jugiong, Wagga, Tarcutta and Sydney, as well as the legion of Tumut and Blowering friends. Rev. J. Brain officiated at the graveside and W.Beavan & Son had charge of the mortuary arrangements. Pall-bearers were Messrs. Alf and Maurice Johnson, Barnie Hayden, Neville Oddy, Mac French and Rolf Bridle. - (Ref- Tumut & Adelong Times - Tuesday May 29 1962).
