  7. So shocked to hear of this news. So sadden for Marg & the McEwan family. Peter was an absolutely top bloke. Always had a yarn to tell & guaranteed for a chat. I would class him as part of the backbone of Yallourn North. Uncle Pete & Aunty Margeโ€™s door was always welcoming to me & my girls (Jessi & KC)
    There will be a big hole on the planet now. Sending lots of love & sympathies to you Marge & your family. Kerri. XOXOXO
    RIP Peter.

  18. On behalf of the Lovison family to you Marge, Deb, Karen, Mark, and to all your family and friends, our heartfelt condolences. This is a very sad and difficult time for you all and we’re very sorry to hear about Peter’s passing.

    I have so many fond memories about Peter from my childhood and growing up in Yallourn North across the road from you all in Gooding Street. Peter was such a lovely person to me, a kind gentleman who always greeted me whenever I was outside, and especially when we both were mowing the lawns. He had a great sense of humour and he always seemed so happy and full of life.

    Peter also gave me great advice about footy when I was young and my mother Judith knitted me my first Richmond jumper when I was 10. Still to this day I share and follow Peter’s beloved Tigers.

    I hope it comforts you to know that your grief is shared by all of us who knew Peter, he was a wonderful man and he will be sadly missed.

    On a special note; I’d also like to say how much love and respect I have for you Marge and to Peter for being such wonderful, supporting friends to my mother Judith.
