Werribee Shire Banner (Vic) – Thursday 19 February 1925
It is with profound regret that we have to record the death of a well-known resident in the person of Mr Walter Hopper, which took place at his residence, Cemetery Road, on the 14th inst. The deceased, who had attained the age of 59 years, was a native of Werribee and had engaged in farming pursuits all his life. Meeting with a severe accident some four years ago he was compelled to cease work, and since then he had lived in retirement. Besides his wife, seven children, viz., George, Mrs W A Pugh, Mrs G Everett, Victor, Mrs P Coker, Mrs J Everett and Arthur are left to mourn the loss of a devoted father.
The remains were interred in the Werribee Cemetery on Tuesday last, the service at the graveside being conducted by the Reb Mr Cerutty, of the Church of England. The mortuary arrangements were admirably carried out by Mr E W Jackson, the well-known Williamstown undertaken.
