Mr. F. J. Pinny, a well-known Wellington business man, who died yesterday afternoon.
One of Wellington''s best known and highly esteemed business men, Mr. Frederick James Pinny, founder and principal, of the firm, of Messrs. F. J. Pinny, Limited, died at his residence, 40 Waterloo Road, shortly after five o''clock yesterday afternoon after a brief illness.
Mr. Pinny was the second son of the late Samuel and Emma Pinny, who were amongst the earliest settlers in the Motuoka and Nelson districts. The late Mr. Pinny was born at Motueka 70 years ago. He spent his early years on his father''s farm at Motueka, and was educated in the district. As a lad he was apprenticed to the building trade in Nelson, and some 56 years ago he came to Wellington, where he followed his trade for some years, assisting in building some of the biggest buildings of that period, including St. Peter''s Church, Willis Street. Being fond of music, Mr. Pinny entered that line of business, and from small beginnings built up one of the largest instrument businesses in the city. This took place 49 years ago, making it the oldest established business in this line in Wellington.
Mr. Pinny''s wife, the daughter of the late Mr. Edward Petherick, a wellknown citizen, pre-deceased him about 14 years ago. He leaves a family of two daughters and two sons — Mrs. L. M. Pearson, of Wellington; Mrs. H. R. Garrett, of Auckland; Mr. F. R. Pinny, builder, of Lower Hutt; and Mr. Edward Graham Pinny, motor garage proprietor, of Wellington. In addition Mr. Pinny leaves three sisters (Mrs. Alexander, of Lyall Bay, Mrs. G. M. Yerox, of Lower Hutt, and. Mrs. Edward Beaglehole, of Auckland) and one brother (Mr. W. Pinny, of New Plymouth).
The late Mrs. C. M. Luke and the late Mrs. H. E. Gilbert were sisters of the deceased.
The late Mr. Pinny was a zealous worker of the Plymouth Brethren cause, for many years being actively interested in Sunday school work. Amongst his philanthropic gifts he donated a section of land and built what is known as the Gospel Hall, Waterloo Road, Lower Hutt.
The funeral will take place tomorrow at the Taita Cemetery after a service at the Gospel Hall, Waterloo Road, Lower Hutt, at 2.30.
