With deep sadness, I relay this message received today from John
Peter passed away at 9.00 am today. He did not regain
consciousness after his three heart attacks on Monday.
His death is a great loss to the faceting world as well as his
family and friends. I have assured his widow, Heather, that I
will continue with our book project. Unfortunately this may be
delayed somewhat until I gather together Peter’s records, etc.
I will keep in touch. Please pass on the news to other facetors
in the USA and the WWW.
My University address is still email@example.com
Words, as always in the face of death, are inadequate.
Co-Founder of the Australian Factors’ Guild in 1981, and editor
of its magazine, Facet Talk for 12 years, Peter Collins leaves a
legacy of knowledge, friendship and enthusiasm.
Deepest condolences to his wife Heather, and to all his family
His memory will always be for a blessing.
