A statement from his family said: "Peter is survived by his father Des, his sister Vivian, and his wife Marie Webb. Peter and Marie have three children, Lyndsey, Mark and Samuel. They also have five loving grandchildren whom he so loved to look after and play with. Peter loved sport and would spend his time with his grandchildren in developing their enthusiasm for whatever sport they would choose to take part in.

"Peter worked as an inspection engineer working around the globe for many employers such as The British Steel Company at the Trostre works site, Shell petrol and many other petroleum-based companies.

"He lived and loved life to the full, looking after his family, growing vegetables in his garden and spending much of his time training for triathlons and taking part in Iron Man competitions. He will be sorely missed by his family and all his friends

“Peter’s hard work and dedication to his family was a true reflection to the kind man that he was.”
