Flowers in pink wrapping for Robert John Alexander JOHNSTON

My great grandads grave.

Born 27 July 1887

Died 6 September 1956 and was estranged from his family.

 

He died at 'Gardenholm' a convalescence home in Rotorua that no longer exists [would love a photo of the original building if anyone has one].

 

Family lore has it that he had a very old violin that he used to pawn now and then ... i wonder where this ended up?

  

The story of his son:
