Peter was the first friend I met when we moved into North Kingston 25 years ago. He was so friendly, warm and easy to talk to. He knew so much about life, people, football and music and was always suspicious about politicians and big business. You could always tell what time of year it was with Peter – if he was wearing long trousers then it was mid-winter and really cold. Peter was the ultimate man-around-town: you’d bump into him everywhere, down the Pub, in Sainsburys, in Canbury Gardens, sitting in the Kingston Apple Market, or outside the Ham Bistro. If anything moved in Kingston, Peter knew about it! He was always chatting to people and had stories to tell. Peter was never a big drinker but used to love a pint and a cigar. I loved the fact that he would laugh at his own stories and memories, sometimes until the tears were rolling down his face. Peter enriched all our lives, we will miss him dearly and Kingston will seem empty without him.
I have indelible memories of my time with Peter – following England to Germany, choosing red wines in France, visiting casinos in West London and racecourses around the UK to name but a few. Not forgetting the unquantifiable visits to local drinking establishments with numerous other buddies.
In particular I’ll remember walking the dogs, Peter in his well worn but resilient ‘all year round’ shorts – no belt required. He was a great raconteur often embellishing with extra pieces of priceless information sourced from his wide network of friends and acquaintances. Now and then I’d question his journalistic accuracy but a credible defense was often used in mitigation. Always copious amounts of laughter, mischievousness and good natured banter occasionally interrupted by a Teddy square up with another male dog with Peter, Boris and myself in hot pursuit.
We’d often meet in the gym, invariably we’d end up in the steam room waiting for an empty jacuzzi. Once in we were normally set for a good 60 minutes and it gave him a good opportunity to rinse the beard post lunch and of course we’d discuss everything under the sun in our place of sanctuary.
Peter was a giver and he gave the most precious commodity – his time. He was always available to actively listen, consider and share. His community spirit was immeasurable – driving neighbours to St Albans, clearing a friend’s flat, buying and delivering burgers for Little League – the list could go on and on. With a big heart full of kindness his generosity had no bounds.
Peter was a true friend, will be sadly missed but never forgotten.
A long friendship with never a cross word. Great memories and myths which got crazier with every telling. Greatly missed and irreplaceable.
I have known Peter for years both as a Woodside Road neighbour to my mum and Dad, Gill and George Ageros, and as a fellow Fern Hill parent and sometime school Father Christmas! Peter was such a lovely man and we had many a chat over a coffee at Esporta or bumping into each other at the school gates. He was such a proud father and most times our chats were about how our kids were doing. Always a smile and a happy word for everyone, waving hello at his Woodside Road door – that is how my Dad and I will remember Peter, with much fondness. Heartfelt condolences from us to you his family.
So sorry to hear of the loss of Peter. I’ve known him since our time at Fernhill school . I have fond memories of Peter, regularly spotting him at The Bistro having his morning coffee with a cheery wave as I’m peddling past on my bicycle. Also, fond memories of our Fernhill mums and honorary ‘mum’ Peter , who was always a welcome member of our nights out and coffee mornings. I will miss seeing him out and about with Teddy.
Peter what can we say about Mr Daddy Day care as we all knew him down at Fernhill school. He always had time to help down at the school my fondest memories were peter as Santa Claus all the children knew it was Peter. I also help at the Christmas fair and used to sneak him a mould wine or too! The Summer fair he would have a beer and a hotdog for his hard work by helping to set up the stalls. Myself and my friend Sarah had memorable visit to IKEA where Peter had a coffee with us had a good gossip then shopped and brought a load of stuff we probably didn’t want. .Finally the bistro at ham parade will never be the same without Peter sitting outside with a coffee in one hand and a cigar in the other. That’s how I rennet Peter.
Peter was the epitome of a perfect neighbour and friend. Nothing was ever too much trouble and he was always ready to help anyone with anything. Importantly he was always willing to give his time to chat, listen & empathise. Engaging, interested and supportive I will miss his cheery smile, cheeky sense of fun, his wave from his bike or when he was out walking Teddy. Peter often managed to bring a smile to my face & make me chuckle about ‘local’ issues. He was a truly lovely man & I feel blessed to have known him. God bless you Peter & rest in peace.
I think most of us know Peter had an inbuilt sat nav, that somehow never worked and we always ended up driving three sides of a square to get to our destinations, however when we used to take the boys to football, he always managed to locate a café, coffee shop or a tea point, no matter how far we travelled, time of day and the weather. So we always managed to get warm whilst the boys played their football match. Over 100’s of warm teas we managed to solved the most important topics in life, Chelsea, Middlesbrough and Formula 1. He was a loyal friend and we miss him so much. He definitely was “Peter the Great” in our hearts.
Pete was always a generous and constantly good natured feature in Woodside Road, and the local community for as long as we can remember. He will be greatly missed.
Our thoughts and sincere condolences to Elaine, Finn and Caspar.
Caroline and Hugh Scantlebury
Peter was one of life’s genuinely good guys who always greeted everyone with his warm welcoming smile and glass half full spirit.
We will miss our banter in the street about the ups and downs of Leeds United & Peters beloved Boro but most of all his friendly upbeat presence in our community.
May he rest in peace
With our condolences to his loved ones

Some 15 years ago, whilst attending a Fernhill School Christmas Fair, our excitable youngest son proudly announced that he knew the true identity of Father Christmas – “He’s Finn and Kaspers Dad! ” shouted a 5 year old James – hell bent on sharing his secret Santa knowledge with his class mates and anyone who cared to listen.
And so our friendship with Santa began and it’s true to say the big guy delivered his many gifts by the bucket load during the 15 years or so we’ve been fortunate enough to consider him one of our best friends. Like Santa he was generous to a fault, would go out of his way to help others, and seemed to personally know the entire population of his adopted hometown.
Over the years our families have enjoyed many wonderful holidays together in France and Cornwall where we would spend endless hours chewing the fat largely talking nonsense – and boy was Peter a grand master in spinning a crackin’ Yarn!? At times, typically after consuming large quantities of local ale, Peter would share personal tales of his life growing up in Middlesborough. We were perplexed to learn he considered himself to have failed at school and as a consequence lacked self confidence. We agreed to disagree and it remains our opinion that Peter possessed all the attributes required to be a wonderful successful man on every level.
We fondly remember the joy of seeing Peter entertain a crowd on the beach as they watched Peter standing fully clothed and chest deep in the Atlantic Ocean nonchalantly smoking his cigar whilst keeping a watchful eye over his sons as they enjoyed the surf. It’s fair to say there is nothing he wouldn’t do for Finn and Kasper!
It’s unreal to comprehend Peter is no longer with us and understandably he is sadly missed by all who loved him. We know for sure Peter believed in the concept of Karma and lived his life putting the needs of others before his own. It’s comforting to believe he’s now in a good place – he certainly deserves to be!
It’s been a privilege to have spent time with Peter who has taught us so much and made the world a better place. He was a wonderful man and inspiration to all who knew him.
RIP Peter – Malcolm & Margot, Fraser & James xxxx

I shall miss you Peter as we’ve kept in touch over the years, sometimes falling out over various subjects but generally ended up mates. Bye for now kiddo, Charlotte (Auntie).
So very sad to hear of Peters passing. I regularly bumped into Peter around Kingston – mostly whilst food shopping or walking our dogs. Peter was always happy and cheerful and always had time for a good catchup chat. He spoke proudly about Finn and Casper and of his plans to live in Devon with Elaine. We will all miss you Peter with your easy smile and friendly face. May you rest in peace. Much love Kashmira x
Pete and I met when we were in the same class at St Mary’s College in Middlesbrough and we’ve always stayed in touch. I remember having more than a few beers with him at the preferred watering hole; the Linthorpe Hotel or the Linny as it was called. We decided that we would hitch to Reading that night as we were reminiscing about swimming in the river when we went to the festival – we got as far as an underpass near Doncaster and had to sleep there – it was slightly cold
We shared a flat in Saltburn where he used to play his electric guitar in long johns while smoking a pipe. The flat didn’t have any central heating, and was referred to as Ice station zebra, I remember one winter, spending our nights in the small kitchen with the gas rings on talking rubbish….happy times.
Pete stayed with us in Brighton where he was affectionately known as the man under the blanket. Pete has been a constant in my life for a long time; I’m going to miss his explosive laugh, his intelligence, friendship and texts about the Boro, but most of all just passing time. See you about mate
There are some people you meet in life you instantly warm to. The first time I clapped eyes on Peter, I thought ‘He’s going to be great fun’. He was, as all these beautiful tributes suggest. With a seemingly unending supply of quips and reminscences on any topic you could mention, he was the ideal conversational partner, with a fantastic belly laugh.
I first encountered him at Little League, where he would hold court on the touchline.
Then I would see him on the shopping round, where we’d put the world to rights for 15-20 minutes. I have a very fond memory of a morning I spent with him at The Bistro, where he regaled me with tales of Ayresome Park, which I then put together for a piece for FourFourTwo magazine – it was full of trademark Peter lines. The world really will be a smaller place without him – the game has lost a fantastic character.
It was a pleasure to have known him.
I am missing Peter terribly, and my condolences to Elaine, Casper and Finn.
He became a good friend, and was always there for a chat.
Really it was the lack of drama which defined him, making him a pleasant and easy-going man to be around.
Simple meetings at the pub with Richard, maybe one or two others, are not newsworthy, but are important for day to day life.
Being at ease with someone, and always something to talk about, doesn’t happen with everyone.
Obviously his help delivering my boat from Abingdon to Henley last February was significant, a really enjoyable two days (with Richard), and we all shared the same room in the hotel! (Peter snored).
We were looking forward to a few trips this year, and would have celebrated the pubs opening again yesterday, probably at the Anglers in Teddington.
On our lockdown WhatsApp group, again with Richard, we exchanged daily messages and silly jokes, right up to the end.
He had an encyclopaedic knowledge, and our extensive and wide ranging discussions would cheerfully go off on multiple tangents. You never knew where you would end up.
He knew everyone, and was a very popular and respected person in Kingston.
It is so cruel that he has been taken, he will leave a large hole in many peoples lives.
God bless you, Peter.
I will never forget the friendship and generosity you showed me. You were always ready to share a witty story, an intelligent insight or a conspiracy theory and it was always a pleasure to be in your company – especially with an unhurried beer in our hands. Our ‘Three men in a boat ‘ expedition down the Thames will be a cherished memory. We are all going to be the poorer without you.
Rest in peace dear Friend.
Knowing Peter was a Experience, Education and a Laugh, but most of all a Pleasure. I will miss our very long phone conversations. Thanks Peter for being a good Friend too Myself and Con.
Peter McCormack was our neighbour and friend. We first met him when our mail got muddled and he made the connection, McCormack was Katherine’s maiden name. Since that day, we have enjoyed many chats and banter with Peter. We would always stop for a natter whenever our paths crossed outside no. 26, or in Canbury Gardens or in the local pub. We didn’t know him deeply but Peter always seemed to us someone who had lived a great life and was happy about it! He was a big hearted man with a huge, infectious smile – one we will never forget. x
Katherine and Nick Wherry
I know Peter throuh Elaine and I knew we immediately clicked when we started talk about politics and general life stuff. He was a very bright, intelligent chap I thought who always gave his attention what I was talking about. Pure kindness and generosity always. Also a very nice gentleman, he always giving me a lift back home when our chat gone so long and we didn’t realise how late it was.
Unexpected visit in bentalls with Caspar, always cheered my days up at work too.
Truly miss him and a big loss in the Kingston society.
Love you always and thank you fornall the lovely memories.
Peter always greeted me so warmly and always had time for a chat, no matter where we were. His genuine warmth, empathy, and easy-going nature meant he made friends wherever he went and touched the lives of everyone he met. He was so kind too, and nothing was too much trouble. For example, I remember the numerous times he helped us out with LEAH charity events, to collect and deliver things we needed, and always did everything with great enthusiasm, and a smile. Peter brought so much cheer and brightness to the world and I know he will be deeply missed by everyone fortunate enough to have known him.
Much love and deepest sympathy to Elaine, Finn, and Kasper.
Proud to have served alongside Peter in the sports mad Mum and Dad’s Army that was TAFC Phoenix and HWRCC Colts. He was the coolest of cool co-managers and my always positive pal. Top of any league for fun friendship and, above all, family values. Our thoughts are with Elaine, Finn and Kasper as we bid a sad, but fond, farewell to Peter, one of life’s unforgettable characters, with love, admiration and affection.
Jack, Lynne, Ellie and Charlie Crawshaw
I lived on the same road as Peter. It was always a privilege to have a natter with him, especially as he had a great sense of humour and a good heart.
I will never forget him wearing shorts in the winter, I took a leaf out if his book and did not last long.
Sending our condolences to his family, our thoughts are with you at this difficult time.
Love Sam and Joe x
I have just watched the beautiful service for Peter with my daughter Erica – it is so lovely that everyone remembers him with such joy and affection. I met Peter and Elaine at antenatal classes in 1998 at the Churchill Medical Centre. It was a great group and Finn was the first born – the babies were always compared to his progress! Peter and Elaine were kind and generous and frequent hosts of parties and birthdays. Peter was an honorary “mum” and throughout the years always remembered Erica and Euan with funny anecdotes – especially him rescuing me when I had accidentally locked Euan in the car at six months old. We met again at the school gates (dog now in tow) when Finn and Kasper moved to St John’s primary in Teddington and later at Teddington School it was great to see the antenatal babies at school events as teenagers. He will be a hugely missed person in the community and the utmost condolences to Elaine, Finn and Kasper. Thank you all for the happy memories and for your support to me and Erica and Euan when they were young.
I only got to know Peter relatively recently, sometimes meeting up with him, Ben and Richard on Friday evening. He was unfailingly warm and companionable, a fund of funny or quirky stories from his or someone else’s past. I remember one of his lightbulb ideas was for a TV sitcom, set in the 70s and centred on the mishaps of a not-so-successful Geordie rock band as they crossed the country in a beaten-up van.
During the past year I often bumped into Peter walking his dog down by the towpath near Canbury Gardens, usually engaged in conversation with one of his many Kingston friends. The last time we spoke was in Sainsbury’s at Christmas, where he advised me on what red wine I should buy. Such a genial and sympathetic man. He will be much missed.
I met Peter a few times at various LEAH projects and functions. I’ll always remember his big smile and amazing ability to talk to anyone with warmth and kindness. When he came to support a local project, he sat next to one of our English learners – well, you would have thought they’d known each other for years! Chatting away, sharing stories and all perfectly at ease – recurring themes in all these tributes it seems!
Peter was such a community spirited man. He’ll be missed by so many because he was loved by so many.
We will remember Peter as the kind and happy man he always was, waving a hello from his bike, or when walking his dog, and never without a smile. Woodside Road will miss his cheery presence and our thoughts and condolences are with Elaine and his boys.
Just where to start..?
We lived together in the eighties for a long summer.. Long walks’ talks playing badminton’ guitars & swimming & most everything else… His generosity of spirit shall always be remembered & of course his guitar playing in the early hours of the morning…
For those that know the story… Peter was a 50% bona-fide member of the Hole in the Wall Gang…. 😉
Farewell my friend… Safe Journey
I first met Peter years ago during his time living in Middlesbrough. He was always great fun with such a creative knowledgeable mind and understanding of the world. His sense of humour was fantastic. Since those days we always stayed in touch engaging in long hilarious phone calls and my visits to London. He loved his music, football and was so eloquent in conversation about almost anything really but most of all he loved and was so proud of his family.
Elaine, Casper and Finn.
He touched the hearts of many.
Peter’s presence will always be with us
Al Harrington. X
Extremely saddened to hear that Pete will no longer will be with us. I spent many a Saturday morning chatting to Pete on latchmere rec discussing our boys playing footy and usually missing any goals scored! Such a warm, friendly and funny man. He was always there to offer advice and kindness. Pete will be truly missed from Kingston and I am so blessed to have known him.
Sending much love to his family.
Love Maria Channell xxxx
To say Peter had a big heart is an understatement. I sometimes wonder how such a big heart managed to fit inside him. He spent his life in service to his family, his neighbours and his friends, rarely refusing to help when asked.
We first met as two of the few Dad parents picking up our boys from Fernhill which invariably ended round at his house for a chat and a snack which gave time to talk over the day’s news and general patter, and he always displayed a vast knowledge and intellect in a wide range of subjects. He was forever busy with various requests from friends and neighbours and had a dedication to those who came into his life without any feeling of being owed something.
His cheerful outlook was contagious and in all the years we remained friends, he rarely showed any sign of unhappiness or anger and always seemed to make those he came into contact with, feel good about themselves.
When a person of such stature disappears from our lives, it leaves a big hole that can be rarely filled. His dedication and love to his family is reflected in their strength to pull together and support each other and I feel that with the help of those of us who are close and able to assist, we can help them through these difficult times and I wish them love and blessings in the years ahead.
Peter was the kindest and most caring of all friends.
I moved to London only a few months before I met him and I was ever so fortunate the universe put him on my way. He instantly made me feel so welcome and in a manner of speech, he took me under his wing.
I remember when we met; it was one sunny crisp wintery morning in February 2003. I was walking Tilly, the doggie of the lovely Family I was an aupair for at the time.
Peter, stopped to say good morning and chat, whilst pushing Kasper on a pram at the end of Woodside road.
I remember thinking, what an awesome chap!.
After that, I visited often the McCormack’s home and had endless conversations about music with Peter, sometimes we’ll talk about films and books too, but it was all about music.
Peter introduced me to many new sounds. He played Nina Simone’s album once and instantly I acquired an interest in Jazz.
And through music, is how I can define our friendship.
I dedicate this playlist to him:
Seeing the world through his eyes, was refreshing no matter what the weather brought, always positive yet full of wisdom. Peter’s perception of life was something truly inspiring and wonderful.
He was such a good listener and genuinely interested in what one had to say. He also had an incredible gift when it came to people and connecting them.
I owe so much to Peter, specially when it comes to my career.
He is the one who put Malcolm on my path, in 2007 Malcom and his associates at TFF gave me the opportunity to join their practice.
That is how my “true life” as an Architect started, and because of that, I have also got to meet wonderful people that now I can call best friends.
Peter was like a Guardian Angel to me and will be always be grateful to him for infinite reasons, he will always have a very important place in my heart.
We met Peter through Elaine. In 2014-15 Elaine started teaching English to my elderly mother who is Brazilian and came to live with me in Kingston in 2013. From then on, Elaine and Peter have become part of our family. They were my mother’s only social outlet. They have taken her to many outings. Who does that? Therefore, it is easy to see how kind, caring, considerate, and loving they are.
Peter and Elaine have also been always present at our birthdays, Christmas and other big days in the calendar.
I wish the majority of people were like Peter and Elaine as the world would certainly be a much better place.
I hope he left us and went somewhere like the heaven we imagine knowing how important he was in our lives.
We will miss Peter greatly and I have a very heavy heart writing this tribute.
Lots of love and blessings,
Marcia, Maria, and Alan
Marcia da Silva
Peter was a unique soul, without a doubt the friendliest, most sociable person we’ve ever met. He always had time for a chat and a laugh, musing over the latest goings on and putting the world to rights – we’ll so miss that.
Peter always looked out for others too, to name just a few examples, driving our elderly neighbours to the doctors or hospital, helping another neighbour to break into their own home when they forgot their keys (Rachel!), and taking Charlie in one evening having spotted him trying to climb over our back gate – he’d forgotten his key and we weren’t due home for some time.
Peter was a good, kind man and it’s hard to accept that we won’t see him again. When we hear someone laughing in the street, we still think it’s him; and that’s just how we’ll remember him, always friendly, smiling and laughing. Elaine, Finn and Kaspar, we know he’ll live on through you all. Take good care of each other. With love from Chris and Dave Richardson xx
Peter was the life and soul of our street. He was always was willing to give me advice on schools or builders or anything in the area….I will remember him singing loudly sometimes and that would always make me chuckle, and just feel so lucky to have such wonderful neighbours. My heart felt condolences…
Peter was the kindest and nicest neighbour we could have asked for. Always with a smile, happy to chat and help out – frequently throwing our balls back over the fence!
We will really miss him. Our thoughts are with Elaine and the boys.
Love, Tom, Neera, Arun and Layla x
I didn’t know Peter well, sadly, but on the occasions I met him through Elaine he was charming, funny and someone who I immediately felt at ease with. The first time I met him was at a LEAH work function for our volunteers, in true ‘Peter’ style he had kindly driven to pick up the food with Kasper, as he delivered the food to the venue he was chatty, got involved and helped set up some tables. I didn’t know who he was at that stage and just thought the food delivery guy was being super helpful….then realised this was ‘THE’ Peter! Such an unassuming and lovely man with true kindness at his core. He was a real character and I know how deeply Elaine, Finn and Kasper (& Teddy) loved him and how he loved them back. I heard so much about him from Elaine – some funny stories that would have us ‘in stitches’ at work! Thank you Peter, for this joy. What struck me above all was his utter devotion to his family, particularly his boys, something to be treasured and an inspiration to us all. Heartfelt sympathy to our Elaine, Finn and Kasper – devastating to lose someone so special. Much love to you all and rest in peace, Peter. You have left an amazing legacy and will be remembered always.
Peter was the nicest guy you could meet.
Robin and I knew Peter from Finn’s friendship with our sons Benny and Lawrence, originally from Kingston Little League, but mainly from when our three boys played together for Teddington and Kew.
Games were always much more fun when Peter came along (usually with Teddy), shouting advice to Finn in particular and our defence in general. Peter was always laughing, and always chatting about absolutely anything.
Peter usually offered to drive us and the boys across London to away games, and there was never a moment’s silence, and the time sped by.
Most memorably was a weekend in a Hastings Caravan Park for a football tournament – where Peter (and Teddy of course), plus lots of beers and rubbish food, helped turn it into a huge laugh.
And I know from Benny & Lawrence that they used to love their long chats with Peter in the jacuzzi at Esporta.
Benny, Lawrence and both of us will miss Peter terribly.
Goodbye for now Peter, l am sure we’ll meet again in a better place, you have been a great friend, partner and father, 40 year friendship says so much and only debates never arguments, no-one has a bad word for Peter Mac and plenty have good ones, Eternal rest give unto you Peter and let perpetual light shine upon you and may you rest in peace Amen.
Who will give us all the gossip in the street now and who will Dave put the world to rights with! We miss our chats over the garden wall and his cheery hello as he flew by on his bike! Such a cheery friendly and super helpful man . We send our love to Elaine, Finn and kasper xxx
I’ve known Peter since he first partnered up with my friend Elaine back in the 80’s when we all danced to a different beat …young at heart with the world ahead of us! I have lovely memories of many a good night spent around their dinner table being entertained by Peters’ endearing wit, great sense of Middelsbro’ humour and hearty laughter. The night he introduced me to Tequila slammers….hmmmm……I think was memorable…if only I could remember it! Some years later after I had relocated back to the north of Scotland, I found myself back in Kingston looking for a temporary place to stay for a few months to try out a new job. Peter and Elaine did not hesitate to welcome me into their home, even though Elaine had not long given birth to Finn, a time when I’m sure the last thing they probably needed was a lodger, yet they made me feel so welcome. I will be eternally grateful for their unconditional friendship which remains to this day. When friends grow up together, they stay forever friends. I’ve been back in Scotland now since ’94, and apart from a few visits by the McCormack clan up to Scotland, and a few trips down south for me, we’ve sadly not spent any real quality time together. Reading all of these amazing tributes by Peter’s close neighbours and friends down in Kingston makes me realise that I’ve clearly missed out hanging around with an amazing man. His annual Christmas telephone call never failed to make me laugh…you just can’t beat a good Northern sense of humour! So hard to believe your gone Peter….but easy to see that you will not be forgotten. You’ll be a great gift to those you now walk with. Until we meet again Pete…xxxxx Love, Colleen
We were very sorry to hear of the tragic loss of Peter. Over the 20 years we have known Peter, he has been a big part of the community in Woodside Road. We will miss chatting with him in the street or park and waving to him when he passed by on his bicycle or was walking Teddy. Most of all I will remember him as a kind and happy man always there to help you when you needed it. He will be missed by everyone whose lives he touched.
Our thoughts and sincere condolences to Elaine, Finn and Kaspar.
Jon, Debbie, Alexander and Charlotte
