For Pete's sake
Help the family of Peter F White as they face life without him. He succumbed to motor neurone disease in June 2020.Southland
Peter F White died peacefully from motor neurone disease on 28 June 2020. It wasn't his fault that he had the disease. It just picked him out.
He was quite a character, as the many, many people who knew him through his tennis, music and video-making exploits will testify.
He was a stalwart of the Southland and national tennis community for 25 years and coached and mentored many winning regional teams and players. As well, he was an accomplished drummer with a colourful history in music.
Pete was married to Melissa and they have a daughter Emma. He knew that he wouldn't be around forever to support Milly and Em, but right to the end he kept working hard to be the best husband and dad he could be while the disease let him.
Pete was an incredibly optimistic person who always tried to bring out the best in others.
This is for Pete's family to help them do whatever needs to be done over the incredibly difficult months to come.
