Peter Williamson 17th February 1958 – 17th December 2016.
WTMC Veteran Member.
I remember Peter as the man to go to at Bivouac Store. He wasn’t just the manager, he was the man who gave advice on gear and how you could use it in the outdoors.
I remember Peter on a trip to Trains Hut in Wanganui National Park where we all swam in a remarkable pool with a waterfall pouting into it. Peter loved the water.
I remember Peter turning up at a WTMC multi-sport event with a trailer load of kayaks just in case someone might need one. He did this sort of thing without being asked. Peter loved kayaking.
I remember finding Peter by chance, or was it chance? He was in hospital because he was having breathing difficulties. He seemed unconcerned. He was always concerned about others.
I remember Peter recently walking in the Orongorongo valley with his partner Kirsty and some of his family. He was feeling positive and talking of getting back into tramping. He loved tramping.
I will never forget Peter.
