A family man

Created by Compassion in World Farming on 10/21/2010
Peter, a committed vegetarian, was also a devoted family man. Husband to Anna and loving father to his three daughters - Judy, Gillian, and Helen - he treasured his time spent with family. He was immensely proud of his 6 grandchildren. In 1991, Peter and his family received the devasting news that he was developing Parkinson’s disease. Although advised by his doctors to give up full-time work, he remained on Compassion’s governing board for several more years. On 15 November 2006, at the age of 82, Peter died peacefully with Anna and his daughters by his side. His life’s work lives on in the campaigning organisation he founded during his lifetime. Compassion in World Farming continues to be guided by Peter’s values of compassion and integrity and remains committed to achieving Peter’s goal of ending factory farming forever.
