Hi Lyn - obviously one of my better days today!! I thought it would be a nice, quiet way of remembering a generous minded man - he was more than happy to pass on what he knew, and he knew a considerable amount.
As it is a Saturday perhaps he could be remembered by those who knew him at one of the forums meet ups,perhaps in the venue you all last met with him.
I am sure his wife would appreciate this thought. Alberta
When ever Peter came to Birmingham one of his favorite pubs to visit was the Anchor in Digbeth. There again Peter had so many he liked to visit. I have often wondered how far he got in his second atempt at recording the history of Birmingham Pubs after he accidently deleted the allmost complete first list.
It has been Five years since we lost Peter Walker and I still miss him so much, it's like I have lost a member of my family.
For those that knew him, we lost a true friend and a perfect Gentleman with a overwhelming passion for Birmingham and all it stands for.
For those that never met him, you missed out on a truly amazing experience.
Rest in peace my cyber brother, still missing you.
I'm sorry but I never met the gentleman so I have no personal insight, although I did interact with him on occasion on the forum. I was always struck by how well informed he was on most topics and how willing he was to share that knowledge. The forum is a much poorer place without him and he is missed greatly.
Remembering Peter today. He is often in my thoughts. A kind and knowledgeable man. I learned so much about Birmingham from his contributions to the site and the kindness he and his wife showed to me when I went to stay with them in Croydon. Unforgettable memories.
