This looks like his death at Ryerson Index - if that is definitely him with Florence

REID Robert Andrew - Death notice

late of Randwick
Sydney Morning Herald 29MAR1989

and Florence:

REID Florence May - Death notice

You can request a lookup of the notices from volunteers, may list children (and hopefully his age!)

Florence's death (for some reason reg as 1965?)
409/1965 REID FLORENCE MAY / JOHN EMMANUEL / ALICE AMELIA / SYDNEY

which matches this birth:
16740/1897 GALLAGHER FLORENCE M / JOHN E / ALICE M / TAMWORTH

Alice's maiden name was HUNT (m. John in Tamworth in 1894).

Florence M GALLAGHER married Thos R BROWNE in 1921 (reg 14436). Possible death as Thos R BROWN in 1935 in Sydney as son of Thos & Martha, which matches a birth in Balmain North in 1897...

But that is a year after Florence remarried sooo...maybe the death in 1925, son of Joseph & Rachel? (matches a birth in 1888!)

Thanks for all the help.
Robert was a machinist at the time of his marriage to Emily in 1924.
Do we know that the Robert Andrew who married Florence was born in Joadja?

Hi Anne

You would need his marriage certificate to check his occupation and birth place
