      Don Linklater known to all as Donny passed away in October at Ross . Don and Lorraine were the last of the Linklaters to farm at the top or the Waitaha on a property carved out of the bush by Hugh and George Linklater back in early 1910-15. On leaving the farm Don continued farming with dry stock, farm contracting and ownership of the Ross garage. He was held in high esteem and respect thoughout Westland which was reflected by the huge crowd that attended his funeral. Behind the scenes, Don’s help to ensure the Linklater reunion was a success will always be remembered.
