Peter Robinson, Vice-President and founding member of this clubs died peacefully in his sleep due to complications with cancer.
This is what Chris Smith G3uFS said about Peter.
“It is with great sadness that we learn that our Vice President of Worthing and District Radio Club has passed on, having born the illness with great fortitude over the past few years.
Peter was of the first members of the club, having been instrumental in it’s formation in 1947 at Oliver’s Cafe in Worthing. That is also where I met him for the first time.
He had an interesting career, he was Chairman, very long serving Secretary and also editor of our magazine RAGCHEW. Another string to his bow was that over the past few years, he was a standby RSGB news reader, lately taking over as primary news reader on the passing of Chris G3NDJ.
Peter was a very approachable person with a truly encyclopaedic knowledge of this club, it’s origins and members. He was very ably to assisted by his partner Francis, to whom we convey our sincerest condolences.”
Peter will be greatly missed RIP.
Chris Smith GT3UFS, President, 21/06/2016″
