In loving memory of Peter Henry Turner (1930-2016) who sadly passed away on 13th June 2016
Peter was born in 1930 in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire. He was the top of his class at Wolstanton Grammar School , and then went on to Durham University where he read History and Economics. He was too young for service in WWll, but he completed his two years national service in the Royal Army Pay Corps. He worked as an accountant for the Midland Bank (now HSBC) and unusually he worked for this one employer his whole career.
Outside of work Peter was:
a photographer - (recording practically all of rural England)
a musician - (1st and 2nd violin for local orchestras)
a gardener - (large garden at home with carefully considered planting schemes
a walker - (all over the UK)
a botanist - (particularly wild flowers)
an ornithologist - (even while driving the car)
a collector – (particularly of ornaments reflecting his interest in the natural world).
Perhaps most importantly:
Always a giver and never a taker
