I was shocked and saddened to hear of Pete’s sudden passing. A man of few words, but he left a large footprint in our little village. Cords of Burch (da besta) how many did he and Judy split? When Pete and Robin Jones signed up to row, defeat was never an option. During Pete’s well deserved retirement, I knew summer had arrived when he would start wearing shorts! Our little village is missing you and will remember you fondly. God’s Speed

Please accept our sincere condolences. Please know we are thinking about you all and praying for you during this difficult time..

Sorry to learn of Peter’s passing. We remember him fondly. Condolences, Gerry and Caroline Stone

I remember when Pete used to come into Mom’s store and he was always polite and pleasant, never had much to say though. He was very quiet which was sometimes a blessing for her but other times she would have liked him to be more forthcoming with a bit of “news” from down on the beach. He was a very nice gentleman and will be missed.
Condolences to all of Peter’s family on your loss.

Condolences to the family. Pete was a fine feller, every time Id’e see him walking in to the store he’d always stop and we’d have a brief chinwag . You will be missed old timer….. Godspeed.
PS. Sorry for stealing yer father’s scythe, but at least I brought it back years later. I don’t think you ever knew it was me, and I “was” going to tell you.

Sincere Condolences to all the family at this difficult time, you are in my thoughts and prayers. RIP Peter. 🙏
