Pete Mc
« 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.

Someone who seemed to embrace the spirit of this forum as well as the hobby. I'm sure will be missed.

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:

Terrible news :(

This hobby, and the forum, has lost an enthusiastic and knowledgeable member. Glad he enjoyed his trains while he could.

You will be missed Pete.

This is very sad news indeed and a complete shock.  He was a very friendly guy and I'll miss his posts on here and on other forums/groups.

RIP Pete.  All the best to your family.
