Our Late General Manager
Our Late General Manager.
Since the last issue of the Magazine, the Department has suffered a sad loss in the untimely death of its late General Manager, Mr. P. G. Roussell. Respected and loved by all who knew him, appreciated as a railwayman for his sound knowledge and capacity, and as an individual for his sterling character, the late Mr. Roussell's passing was a cause of grief throughout the Service and of the deepest sympathy for the relatives and friends bereft of his kindly and warm-hearted association. The spontaneous expressions of sympathy from the staff in all parts of the Dominion were a genuine tribute to the high esteem in which he had been held by all ranks.
