Evening Post 6 March 1902
Widespread regret was felt throughout the Makara and Karori districts at the announcement last night of the death of Mr. W. R. Trotter. The deceased was the son of the late Mr. Peter Trotter, and, like his father, was always to the fore in any movement having for its object the advancement of the district and of the settlers'' interests. For seven years he was a member of the Makara Road Board, and for ten years he held a seat on the School Committee. He was also especially well known to the younger generation as an enthusiast in cricket matters. The local library was an institution which he took great interest in, and he succeeded his father on its Management Committee. The funeral, which took place this afternoon at Makara, was largely attended.
