Peter Thorn

26.01.1929 - 04.06.2020

Peter Thorn passed away peacefully surrounded by his loving family on 4th June 2020 aged 91 years. A loving son to his late parents Joe and Lily. He was a devoted husband to Brenda for 63 years, and a much loved and supportive father to Bernadette, David and Elizabeth and adoring grandfather to eleven grandchildren, fourteen great grandchildren and two great great grandchildren. Peter leaves a lasting legacy of love and affection. Peter touched and enriched the lives of so many. From his family and friends to the people he met on his extensive travels, to the hundreds of children he taught during his long career as a teacher, Peter’s enthusiasm of life, adventure and quest for knowledge was infectious. Peter radiated a goodness and love to all he met, grasping the positives life has to offer, always willing to help, always believing in people. Peter’s humour brought laughter and joy to us all.



Brenda and Peter were beautiful people and gave much joy to their family. ❤️
Loved our discussions about politics, we had great debates

My wife and I had the privilege of meeting Peter and Brenda on holiday and a friendship developed that lasted. He was such a lovely person to share time with and our holiday dinners together were something to cherish and remember with love. We also were delighted to catch up with Peter and Brenda at their home and it was as if we had always known each other. Peter will be sorely missed by all those who knew and loved him.
With huge affection and love, Colin & Suzie
