Sad Death of our Webmaster

Post by John@sos » Wed Aug 28, 2019 1:24 pm

It is with great sadness I have to report that Peter Webster died suddenly last Saturday.

I was informed by one of the Forum Moderators who had been trying to contact him.. I had been in touch with him by mail just days before.... I have spoken to his wife Kirsty and she understandably is extreemly upset. Pete was just 46 years old!

Though he had suffered from poor health for years there was nothing to suggest he was at severe risk.

I will let all know when I get more information, funeral dates, donations etc.

He will be a very hard act to follow, he was my safety net, correcting any of my many messes I got into with these pages, in the blink of an eye.
Tis forums sucess is down to Peter and his efforts.

He is sorely missed... At a loss where to go from here with the site...

Regards,
John

That’s awful news, and a terrible shock! RIP Peter who has part of this community for many years. Condolences to his wife and family, and my thoughts are with them. Perhaps we should do something from all forum members?

It would be a nice gesture for the Forum to show how much his work was appreciated - count me in for any plans you suggest.
Condolences to all Family and Friends. He'll be missed.

Hello all,

it has been suggested by a few that we set up a page on 'Just Giving' or some other website that accepts donations for charitable causes, and takes no fee.

Anyone any experience of this that can point us in the right direction??

Regards,

We are very sad to announce the sudden death, at the age of just 46, of our Webmaster Peter.
In an effort to support his wife Kirsty, I have arranged with her that we can make donations to his old PayPal address, she can collect it from there.

Anyone with a PayPal account can simply open their account, go to 'money' and 'pay a friend' then enter this mail address:- 'payments at seagullparts.co.uk'  You know how to do this, ignore the spaces and insert the @ symbol.

I have started the ball rolling, with a large donation, but if many of us donate just  £10.00 at least she will be able to afford a funeral for him!

If you do not have an account you can either send cheques to me, contact me for details.

You could donate via the Eventide Owners website that Peter also maintained. Go to www.eventides.org.uk and look for the PayPal 'donate' button at the bottom of the page, and I will transfer it to Kirsty.

Or go to PayPal's site if you have no account, and look for the 'donate to a friend' and enter that mail address there, pay with any card.

I have had a message from Peter's wife Kirstie..

Hi I couldn’t find where to post this on the website but, I wanted to thank everyone for their generosity and let them know just how much it’s helping. The total so far £345. Thank you so much for doing this for me. His funeral is September 25, 3:30 at Weeley Crematorium.

I wish I knew as much as Peter to help out but I studied other things none of which I can use to step into his shoes. Please pass on my deepest gratitude to the community for their generosity and thank you again for yours.


I hope to be attending, if I get any further infomation I will post it here.

Regards,
John
