SMITH (PHILIP HUBERT)
08.11.1923 - 30.10.2021 My very dear eldest brother Philip who was born, lived and farmed his entire life in Beverley. Only for a short time prior to leaving this world did he reluctantly and by necessity come to Perth and be cared for by his devoted family. Sadly he had lost his much loved wife four years earlier. Farming was not his first choice as a career but the sudden and unexpected loss of our Father when Philip was just 17 and in war time forced him by regulation to be man powered and to take on the management, with our Mother, of the still developing property. A few years later our Mother, with those of the family still at home moved into town, Philip by then had married Valma Caudle and had a burgeoning family and finally had the somewhat of a crowded house to himself. He was a jovial but hardworking man who had a predilection for giving everyone and everything nicknames. I remember two cats, one ginger called Hoy-Hoy and the black and white one named Tiger Yi-Yi goodness knows what he called the chooks. He had his serious side too when he and our Mother discussed farming - of course - politics, naturally and world events - nothing was missed out, all this at a Sunday morning 10.00am ritual morning tea in our Mother's kitchen when freshly cooked hot scones and savouries were served. Philip had a full and varied life involved in many things in the local community when younger.
A wonderful brother, I will miss him. The last farewell, Pat.
