In reference to the death lately announced of Mrs. David Buick, the Manawatu Standard says that she was the daughter of Mr. Isaac Mason Hill, and was born in Nelson, sixty-five years ago. Mr. and Mrs. Buick were married in 1876, living first of all at the Hutt, and afterwards at Netherby on the Rangitikei line, and later still they removed to Kairanga. Deep sympathy is felt for Mr. Buick and family, of whom there are six — one son and five daughters — the son being Mr. David Buick, Jun., of Kairanga; and the daughters Mrs. J. Hammond Murray (Levin), Mrs. Harry Tarrant (Sydney, N.S.W.), Mrs. E. V. West (Palmerston North), Mrs. M. F. Constable (Napier), and Miss Buick (Kairanga.). There are nine grandchildren, and two of these, Sergeant Cecil Tarrant and Bombardier Marcus Tarrant are on active service with the Australian Imperial Force. The former was seriously wounded at Pozieres, where he behaved with much gallantry.

Evening Post 19 November 1918
Mr. David Buick, M.P. for Palmerston North, died in Wellington at 11 o''clock last night from influenza. The late Mr. Buick was born at Karori in 1848, and was the son of Mr. William Buick, who arrived in New Zealand in the ship Arab in 1841. He received his education at the Hutt, whither his parents moved in 1852. Until 1885 he worked as a farmer at the Hutt, for his father and on his own account. Then he purchased about 550 acres of first-class grazing land at Palmerston North, and carried on business as a breeder of Romney Marsh sheep. He first entered public life as a member of the Hutt Road Board. At Palmerston he was chairman for many years of the Manawatu Road Board and the Drainage Board, and was prominent in all agricultural and pastoral activities. His interest in sport was keen, and he was well known as a breeder and owner of thoroughbred racing stock. In the old days, when the Caledonian Society, flourished, he was one of its most active supporters. His first entry into general politics was in 1896, when he unsuccessfully contested the Palmerston seat. He was elected in 1908, and has represented the constituency since. In Parliament he has been a supporter of the farmers'' interests, of which he had a wide and exact knowledge. He was a man of genial disposition, and very popular amongst members.
The body will be taken to Palmerston to-day for private interment. The Hon. D. H. Guthrie will represent the Ministry at the funeral.
The late member took a prominent part in establishing the Longburn Freezing Works. During the war he has been closely associated with patriotic movements in the district.
Mrs. Buick died recently. The late member''s family comprises one son and five daughters, one of whom is at present seriously indisposed with influenza.
