1941 – 14 Jul 2017
Peter was a valued member of many years standing at Dunblane. Born in Birmingham, he trained as a Technical Draughtsman with most of his career spent with BP, both in the UK and overseas.
He moved to Scotland following the Piper Alpha disaster in 1988, when he was involved in much of the necessary improvement in safety practices and methods of working that followed that terrible tragedy. It was while living in Doune in the early 1990s that he and his close neighbour Liz York joined the band.
Although Peter never rang complex methods, he was a loyal member of the Dunblane and Stirling bands and would be there every Sunday as well as practice nights. Although a stroke in 2008 left him with some weakness, he continued to ring regularly at Stirling. Peter was a cheerful and happy person, always an asset to have at any ringing session. He finally had to give up ringing in late 2015 but still managed to enjoy visits to his new grandson. We all miss him.
