NICKOLLS Dr Peter Michael
2.3.44 – 13.6.20

Loving husband of Ros. Beloved father and father-in-law to Jackie & Dennis, Claire & James. Adored grandad to Seb, Alex, Bella & Hamish. Devoted master of his dog, Lucy. Cherished friend to many.

We have lost a wonderful human being. A polymath without any pretence at all. An athlete who never looked for applause. A scientist and doctor who lived to help others. A humanitarian who tried to make a better life for those in distress. Where does one look to find another like him?

Privately cremated.

A celebration of Pete’s life will be arranged in due course.

The family wish to express their sincere gratitude to the incredible staff at St Vincent’s Care Services, Bronte.
