Title: Pete Mc
Post by: Graham63 on December 04, 2013, 08:33:15 PM
It is with great sadness that I have  to inform the forum of the very tragic sudden death of Pete Mc. He was 44 years old.



Administrator Comment Apologies for adding a little to the first post, but I thought that members would like to know that members of his family have been looking at this thread and really appreciate the messages. Cheers, Tank.

No way.... Heaven has gained another Angel... Joining the N Gaugers in the sky..

I met him a couple of times and had a good convo at Newark.. Im guessing it was sudden as he was full of beans last month..

RIP PETE.

Very shocked indeed to hear this, especially as Pete and I were in contact via PM not so long ago and he was in great spirits with his replacement car. Having met Pete a few times at various shows he was great company and his contributions to the forum, mainly about DCC and sound, showed his dedication.
You'll be sorely missed, Pete. :goodbye:

Will remember him most for his enthusiasm for and his knowledge of DCC and DCC sound. :thumbsup:

Such a shock to hear this very sad news. His knowledge of DCC, and particularly DCC sound, was encyclopaedic and his contributions to the forum will be sorely missed.

RIP Pete. Gone to that great big train set in the sky.

This is a real shock to hear. Pete Mc wrote such long and interesting posts (even the DCC ones), and 44 is no age at all. I'd like to offer my condolences to his family at this very sad time.

Even though I had very few contacts with Peter it is always sad to lose someone who is active and vibrant.

Obviously all our thoughts are with those who are left behind.

Regards, Peter.

Truly devastating news :( I was fortunate enough to know Pete fairly well outside of the group. Bumped into him at many shows and he was a regular operator on Sheaf with his magnificent fleet of sound locos.  R.I.P Pete, you will be missed.

Just read about Pete's death on Facebook, and to say it came as a shock is an understatement, especially at such a young age. I had the pleasure of meeting Pete at TINGS 2012 and having a really good chat, which carried on via the forum. I am privileged to have known him and so sad he has gone.

Condolences to all his family. :'(

I have a terrible memory for names, but I never forget a face.
I'm sure Pete must have said hi to me sometime in the past.

From what you guys say here it's a double hit really. Firstly a great guy has gone, and secondly a great and knowledgable N gauger has reduced our collective ranks.

Sympathys from me to his family and all who knew him.

Due to only being a recent addition to forum membership, I never got to know Pete. But from what I can can gather from all the messages posted, he was someone that was a treasure to be acquainted with.

My deepest condolences and respect to Pete Mc's family & friends with his sad loss.
