The following two obituary notices are from the Database of Carnamah's Past Residents:From The Irwin Index newspaper, Saturday 5 June 1954:"Obituary - Death of Tom Morcombe. Following a somewhat protracted illness, during the course of which he underwent a serious operation in a metropolitan hospital, the death occurred in the North Midlands District Hospital at Three Springs on Sunday last of a well-known and highly respected resident of the North Midlands in the person of Mr. Tom Morcombe, who had since the retirement of his father (Mr. W. G. Morcombe) a few years ago conducted the "Wynmara" Stud at Waddy Forest. A comparatively young man, the late Mr. Morcombe was actively associated with many organisation around Coorow, being a past president of the Coorow-Waddy Forest District Agricultural Society, and as an exhibitor at annual shows of that organisation he was always prominent in entries of Corriedale sheep. The deceased gentleman was also very prominently associated with the Moora Methodist Circuit and three Springs Mission Station and until a few months ago frequently conducted church services at Waddy Forest, Carnamah and Three Springs. The late Mr. Morcombe, who was a devoted family man, is survived by a widow and six young children comprising one daughter and five sons. In the presence of quite a large gathering of district residents, the funeral took place in the Winchester Cemetery on Tuesday last."
Obituary for Tom Morcombe, name and date of newspaper unknown:"Passing of Mr Tom Morcombe. The Methodist Church suffered a severe loss in the death of Tom Morcombe of Waddy Forest. The late Mr Morcombe has for the past twenty years faithfully served the church as circuit Steward and local preacher. Of strong Christian belief, Mr Morcombe ever sought to proclaim in living as well as teaching, the claims of the gospel of God's redeeming love in Jesus Christ. His services as a local preacher were often in demand and many will remember his deep and sincere studies of Scripture. His services were not confined to the Methodist Church but, rising above denominational barriers, he readily gave his help, whether from the pulpit or a Bible Class leader or speaking at Sunday School Anniversaries or at Fellowship meetings. Perhaps chief among Mr Morcombe's interests nearest and dearest to his heart lay the needs on the Christian Mission fields, both here among our native people and on many others throughout the earth, giving readily wherever there was a need. For him it was "Insomuch as ye have done it unto the least of one of these, My brethren, ye have done it unto Me". We mourn his passing, but we are inspired by his strength of character, his courage and manliness, his sincere faith and Christian testimony; our hearts go out in loving sympathy to his widow and children.The untimely passing on May 31 last of P.L. (Tom) Morcombe in the prime of his life will leave a long-felt gap in the community life of Coorow-Waddi Forest. Those in touch with him towards the close of his life could not but admire the courageous way in which Tom Morcombe adapted himself mentally to the verdict of the Doctors and cheerfully put up with considerable pain. Coming as a lad to Waddi Forest when his father purchased one of the newly thrown open Midland Co. blocks, Tom went through the pioneering stage connected with the purchase of virgin land at that time. After gaining wool experience at Geelong, Tom Morcombe took particular interest in the Corriedale stud which his father (W.G. Morcombe), established at "Wynmara" so successfully. And later, he took the stud over entirely when starting farming on his own, on his uncle's property of "Minaru" conducting it most successfully, and winning many prizes at the Royal Perth Show over a period of years - including the coveted Guthrie Cup. He also for a period gave considerable assistance to the Corriedale Breed Society by annually travelling considerable distances to conduct the yearly inspection of those studs which were registered with the Society. Tom Morcombe took a very active part in public affairs of the district as well as the considerable amount of time he devoted to Church work. Early in the War years he was one of the 3 elected by a local meeting of farmers to the District Committee set up in connection with the Wheat Acreage Restriction Scheme set up by the Commonwealth Government. Toward the close of the War he filled the position of President of the Coorow Waddi Forest Agricultural Society for approximately 3 years, after having served on the Show Committee since the inception of the Society. At the time of his death, Tom was President of the local P. & C. Association, having filled this position for some time in a very active manner. Also he was a member of the North Midlands Co-op Co., where his balanced reasoning made him most useful. At an earlier stage he represented Coorow on the Hospital Board at Three Springs at great inconvenience to himself, when no one else was willing to undertake the position. Another public activity was in connection with the Farmers Union. Apart from being a stalwart attender at the meetings of the Coorow Waddi Forest Branch, he was on several occasions a delegate to the Annual Conference, and shortly before his death had completed a two year term as President of the Branch.
Also Tom Morcombe was a keen sport and good sportsmanship was one of the outstanding qualities of his character. At Northam High School he was active in athletics, football and cricket, and later in his own district played football with the Coorow Club, cricket with the Waddi Forest Club and was in addition Captain and first player for the Waddi Forest Tennis Club for a number of years. With his passing, many will feel the loss of a very good friend and his family will have the sincere sympathy of the whole district."
