Sadly this picture turned up on my timeline earlier in the week just as Lorraine Bullock announced that Peter Charles her long time partner had taken really ill, It didn't seem right to share it on the day. Sadly Pete passed away last night after this current short illness.
Peter has been battling illness for the last few years but never ever once did I see him depressed or unhappy considering the pain he was in some days, such a positive intellectual talented guy who made a massive impression on me.
Peter was a true old time entertainer with a silky crooner type voice and sang with the likes of the Syd Lawrence band. His staying power was immense and 3 hour sets were not unusual for him because he loved to sing.
Lorraine and Pete were the perfect couple, so in love and shared their passion for music. Peter you are one of the greats and I am going to miss you dearly.
RIP star. XXX Your friend Brian Berney
Peter's funeral will be on Monday, but due to the current restrictions, numbers are restricted, there will however be a celebration of his life at Mirror Mirror in Duquesa Port from 1 pm on Monday, where everyone will be welcome.
The family have requested no flowers, but if you would like to make a donation to the Saint George Charity in Peter's memory, that would be most welcome.
