So very sad to hear that Heidi, i know your Dad hadn't been well for some time, he will indeed be sadly missed, but very fondly remembered. My condolences to you and the family! RIP Pete.

Best Regards - Taggy

PETE HIBBERT

Hello Heidi, so very pleased you contacted the website. I too have the "best" memories of your lovely Dad, from working with him (seems like a hundred years ago) at N.G.N. Ltd., Kirk Rd, Church, to going round Accy "following" his band - he had the BEST voice, to him decorating my hallway for me a few years back. One of the best!!!! A real pleasure to have known him.

Hi Heidi, I am so sorry to hear the news, wow that was a shock. I knew he'd been ill for a long time, but I didn't expect this. I never knew him that well in the 60's, more by reputation, but I did get to know him quite well in the late 80's and 90's, he used to come and watch the band I was in quite regularly. As you can see by the posts on here, he was a very popular bloke and will be sorely missed by many people. Rock on Pete!!

Having served as a apprenticeship alongside Pete at English Electric and later worked alongside him at NGN, may I add my personal tribute to a great guy who was loved by, and will be missed my very many people. I know he will add his great singing voice to any one of the celestial choirs that doubtless will be clamouring for his attention. Rest in peace, old friend.
