We only knew Pete through the MG Owners Club. Pete was so friendly to us from our very first visit to the club. Pete was a lovely man with so many interests to talk about. We will miss him and are sorry for your loss.

40 years of memories and friendship is no mean feat! To my very not British but English buddy, with whom I shared very special moments like as recently in september in Bordeaux. You will always be in my heart. Chantal

Our memories of Pete are of the fun and laughter we had on the many walks we enjoyed, often getting lost, pushing his wheelchair on the most un
even ground imaginable, and Pete saying "I've had enough of this, let's find a Pub". He introduced us to local Comedy Shows and took us back to our childhood to Pantomimes, which he loved, and could be heard shouting "It's behind you", louder than the children. Pete was the most cheerful and lovely person you could wish to meet. We will miss you.
Love Chris and Ian x

A really fun guy, will miss you loads Peter. Great memories of the rugby club, London River Yacht Club and Paris. R.I.P. love to all your family. Xxx



There are no words left to say about Peter, where he has left a big hole in my life. I met him on my wedding day, as he was my husband‘s best man and he and Marcelle were both witnesses of our wedding. From that day on they were like brother and sister to Bryan and I, if we ever had a problem, they were always there to help.
Peter has been so ill in the last few years and throughout it all he always kept a smile and a positive outlook on life. He’s met the most amazing people and amazing friends. I’ve helped him through the terrible times, but at the end of it, he’s always made us laugh, miss you and love you so much Xxx

We had a wonderful Uncle, one who never really grew old. His smile made of sunshine, and his heart was solid gold.
Rest in peace uncle Pete, love and licks
