Obituary - Late Irwin Angel
"Residents of Carnamah will learn with regret of the death of Mr. Irwin Angel, which occurred on Thursday evening of last week. Deceased, who was the second son of Mrs. and the late Mr. Angel, of Carnamah, had resided in the Moora district for some time, and the news of his death came as a great shock to all who had known him. Of a likeable disposition, he was a keen sport and was a member of both the Coomberdale cricket and football clubs. The funeral took place on Friday, the place of interment being the Methodist portion of the Moora cemetery. A large cortege followed the remains to the graveside."
