Peter had suffered from duodenal cancer, was initially cleared then it came back. In his words it was aggressive and he stopped treatment, things accelerated.
He never sought pity and to my knowledge, only told a few people. I had no idea how bad it was when he let it slip as we played a stroke round (we played quite a few stroke rounds as no other fookers were on when we both were!) that he did not think he would see the upcoming cricket series in NZ......at first I thought he meant it was not televised.....then when I questioned he ignored it.
The last thing he said was "I gave it a good go eh:?
By god you did Peter, a fooken good try! You made it in my books.
