Unhappy We Have Lost a Moderator

I am sad to announce the passing of Peter Forbes "Lister Diesel".
Peter passed away the morning March 8th from a heart attack. Those who have followed Peters journey as of late will well know of the challenges life has handed him and his family.
Peter left a wife, Rita and as I understand it he had sons as well.
Many have refered to "Peter and Ritas engine pages" as a huge source of info for the old engine hobby.
I am woefully underqualified to speak of his accomplishments but those who were lucky enough to have known him in person speak glowingly of his character.
We are having a hard time finding an obituary to link to but when we find one we will post it in the memorial section. I felt the diesel fuel members would need to see this.
We have lost an irrepaceable diesel man.
Rest in peace Peter.

Oh my what a shock. Such a good man and his contributions here were good. He'll be missed by many.

Peter Forbes was a good engine man and a GREAT human being. I got to personally meet Peter on a few occasions and conversed with him from time to time via the internet and it was always a joy to chat with him. I never got across the water to meet him on his own soil although he extended the offer more than once. Each time our old engine world loses a person like Peter then a bit of the knowledge, kindness and closeness the hobby brings to us is lost as well. Our prayers are with Peter, his family and those that feel the loss of this fine person.
