To Allison, Grant & family, my sympathy to you all on the passing of Peter.
Had some interesting talks with Peter in the Invercargill Library foyer over the years.

Pat Coats,


So sad to hear of the passing of you Pete. You’re my fondest memory of growing up in Dalrymple Street and enjoyed everyone we met around town.



So sad to hear of Peter's passing, will miss visiting when I call into Peacehaven. Fond memories.

Barbara (ex administrator)


Sad to read of Peter's passing. We were neighbours for some years when he lived on the SW corner of Martin and Princes St's, and we were on the NW corner. Pete was always keen for a yarn. I didn't see him again until a couple of years ago when I started driving the Peacehaven van for resident outings. He came on some of them and especially enjoyed one trip to Bluff, his old stomping ground, where he was able to give us a lot of information about the town. It was good to catch up again and renew our friendship. Rest in peace, Pete it was a pleasure to know you.

Peter I will miss seeing you out and about on your scooter and that smile.Rest easy Peter x



Pete, you were a wonderful neighbour and friend of the community,
Will treasure the fond memories of you bringing in our mail that gave you your nickname "Postman Pete"
All the times I would see you, you would always cheerfully speak,
Dalrymple St was never the same when you left



So Sorry to hear about Peter's passing. He used to come out for lunch on Sundays with us. He was such a friendy Hardcase Man. I would often see him in the Warehouse. He'd stop for a yarn and give me some cheek! He Will be Sadly Missed.



Very sad to hear of Peter’s death. We had been friends for many years and he celebrated birthdays and Christmas with us often.
He was incredibly stoic, coping with hospitals and operations with real courage.
Rest in peace Peter.

I work in the kitchen at peacehaven and got to know peter over the last couple of years always had a laugh with each other telling him how my home made Kahlua was I will miss him



Hi Alison, I acknowledge the passing of dear Peter. On reflection I have not seen him for some time probably since before Covid. Often saw him on my rounds while working as workplace chaplain, usually at the library, we would sit and have a chat. he would keep me up to date with how you and Grant and family are doing over the ditch. I remember our times together those many years ago now but only as yesterday. I send you my thoughts and prayers as you work through Peter's passing.
