Obituary in the Sydney Morning Herald, Tuesday 9 October 1900:


DEATH OF DR. HESTER.

Dr J. W. Hester, late of Stockton, Newcastle, who had been acting for Dr. Scot-Skirving during the latter's absence on active service in South Africa, died at Roseville early yesterday morning, after an illness extending over five months. Before coming to Sydney the deceased gentleman carried on an extensive practice at Stockton, and was popular with all classes in the Newcastle district. He gave expert evidence at the official inquiries into the Stockton Colliery disaster and the Dudley Colliery explosion. Dr. Hester, who was born in 1865, was educated at Wesley College, Melbourne, and subsequently at the Sydney Grammar School, whence he passed on to the Sydney University. He had a brilliant University career, taking his degree of M.B., Ch.M., obtaining honours in every subject in every year, and winning the Renwick scholarship and gold medal. After obtaining his degree Dr. Hester decided to practise at Stockton, near Newcastle, where he remained for 10 years, during the greater part of which period he was hon. surgeon to the Newcastle Hospital. Shortly after he came to Sydney he was appointed hon. assistant surgeon to the Prince Alfred Hospital. The deceased gentleman, who was a stepson of Mr. T. F. Waller, a member of the Wharf Resumption Advisory Board, leaves a widow, the daughter of Mr. W. B. Smith, of Darbarlara station, near Gundagai. The funeral will leave the residence of Mrs. Spark, Roseville, to-day at 2.30 p.m., reaching St, Thomas' Cemetery, North Sydney, an hour later.

NEWCASTLE, Monday.
The news of the death of Dr. J. W. Hester, published in the second editlon of to-day's issue of the 'Sydney Morning Herald,' was received throughout this district with profound feelings of regret. The deceased during his long residence at Stockton was held in high esteem by all classes of the community, and took an active part in many public movements in the Newcastle district. He was also a prominent figure in athletics, particularly in rowing, cycling, and tennis. Dr. Hester, as the selected federal candidate, contested the Newcastle East Electorate at the last general election in 1898, but was defeated by the sitting member, Mr. W. T. Dick, who was accorded the support of the anti-federal party. The deceased during his residence in this district was annually elected as a member of the honorary medical staff of the Newcastle Hospital, and assisted in many charitable movements He was an active member of the now defunct Mercantile Rowing Club, and occupied the position of president of the Hunter River District Lawn Tennis Association from its inception. He was also an officer of almost every amateur sporting and athletic club in the district.

Upon the departure of his brother-in-law (Dr. Scot Skirving) for the front in South Africa, Dr. Hester left Stockton to carry on the military surgeon's private practice. The deceased, however, had no sooner taken up his residence in the metropolis than he was attacked with a serious affection of the heart, and for some months prior to his death was confined to his bed. Shortly after his removal to Sydney he was elected by the board of the Prince Alfred Hospital to the position of honorary assistant surgeon, but owing to his prolonged illness he resigned the appointment towards the end of last month. The board of directors, at a meeting held on September 20, accepted the resignation with regret.

On the eve of his depurture from Stockton for Svdney, in the early part of January last, he was entertained by the citizens of Stockton and Newcastle, as well as by the Lawn Tennis Association, and was made the recipient of presentations as tokens of the esteem in which he was held.6,4,7
