To the Carnie family. Sorry to hear of your loss. Peter was one of the forces that made our community a force in softball. And the Mataura Island community a great place to grow up. Deepest sympathy

My sympathy to you all. Peter was in my class at Menzies and I haven't seen him since those days. But I've always remembered that in home economics I had to cook a meal for my mum and a couple of teachers. Peter went and caught me a beautiful trout. How kind and from the tributes shown above his beautiful soul and generosity of spirit remained with him throughout his life. R.I.P

Deepest sympathy Elaine. It was sad to know of Peters passing. I will always remember how helpful he was to me when I first started bowling down at Southern. He was always encouraging, even though I was sometimes playing against him. He will be greatly missed. I joined in the live stream, thank you giving me the opportunity to do so. God bless you.

Peter was the most friendly, welcoming and unselfish man we have had the honour of knowing. Always smiling Pete will be sadly missed by those who new him.
Pete loved his cherries at Christmas time, but only the quality ones. He was passionate about indoor bowls and worked tirelessly to promote the game. We shared one of Petes proudest moments in the Gold Coast when playing outdoor bowls, a game neither of us played, Pete played the shot to get 6 on the last end when we were 5 down.

Express my sympathy to the Carnie family at your sad loss, I use to catch up with him at Alliance when he bought his lambs in and he would be there to see them going through the graders scales.
