No title this time…

After writing a couple of posts recently regarding well known people, this one is about someone closer to home…

I’d seen a job advertised recently for a store manager’s post over in Halifax, but decided not to go for it as I’d worked for that company a couple of times and had walked away from their employ back in 2013 – I finished on the Friday and Caroline & I were having a good meal and some fine wine on a bar terrace overlooking Lisbon city centre 24 hours later.

As I’d got to know Peter the manager of Halifax quite well, I thought that he’d decided to retire after a sizeable length of service with the company. But no.

I found out on Friday that he’d passed away just before Christmas and that his funeral had apparently taken place on Christmas Eve.

Always one of the good guys…
