May Uncle Peteโ€™s soul rest in peace everlasting.
We will surely miss his wide bank of knowledge and education on past and present.
Praying for Godโ€™s comfort to surround us at this time and for his constant call; to be swiftly answered by those of us who remain.

Dear Sir Kyffin
We were deeply saddened to hear the news of the passing of our dear friend Peter.

As a young engineer seconded to D M Simpson in the 1970s from Fletcher Smith in the UK, Peter was a great support to me during my time working in Barbados and the islands.

It was during this time I learnt of our mutual interest in philately and he sparked my interest in the history of the sugar industry both locally and in the region.

Over the years we have met up with Peter on his UK visits and on our many visits to Barbados. We enjoyed our trips around the island with Peter visiting old mills and learning something new and interesting each time. His knowledge of the history of the island was fascinating and he would also include his own family history.

We kept in touch at other times by telephone (usually long chats) and prior to our visits he would give me his shopping list of items he required from Stanley Gibbons Stamps in London and spare parts to repair his carriage clocks.

Peter was always a joy to chat with and we visited his home many times during our vacations in Barbados. We will miss his jovial nature and smile.

Our thoughts at this sad time are with all his family and we send our deepest condolences.

Dear Sir Kyffin

I just wanted to pass on a few memories of Pete - he was an extraordinary stepfather to both Zoe & myself - despite the circumstances of the relationship with Jane (my Mother)
Pete : Zoe & myself always retained a special part of each other's lives.

The Sunday afternoons with his stamp collection: walking to Bottom Bay & Harrismith Beach with the Dobermans: visiting Bisley and his exceptional year when he (with the team) beat those pesky Australians & New Zealanders .. a proud moment in his life.

He used to take Zoe up to Codrington on a Sunday evening - precious quality time which Zoe still talks about.

Every time I visited Barbados - we always met - restaurant evenings and never out before 11.45pm - not sure the staff were always happy ...but I was.

I'm so glad that Zoe (in particular) & myself kept in touch - he had such a nice touch which I don't think everybody knew about. His phone calls which started when he called and were usually prolonged even when we thought we had finished...that was Pete.

Talk to him about Burgundy wine and champagne and his eyes would light up - he loved
to discuss the merits of wine & champagne.

Another favourite was Bendicks chocolate - I have a special Christmas edition box at home which I was going to bring over for him - at least now I can think about him every
time I pick one.

Gosh - so many more things but I know you are busy.

I almost forgot - the trademark chuckle. That was Pete.

I've known you since early days so may I sign off (without causing offence) by saying

All best Kyff - look after yourself as well.
