Peter George Abba, OH 1952 - 1961

We are sorry to announce the death of Peter Abba. Thank you to John Allen (OH 1947 - 1954) who has kindly shared the sad news with us and sent through the below words.

I am sorry to have to tell you that my cousin Peter Abba has died. Peter was raised in Anlaby and after Hymers he studied Pharmacy at Manchester University. Not long afterwards he and his wife Sue emigrated to Australia. When he retired he owned a large pharmacy in Woologong NSW. He and Sue have raised a large and still expanding family.They came over nearly every year to stay with Peter's sister. Peter became a keen supporter of Australian sport and would come over to watch cricket in the Ashes series. We had many a friendly discussions taking opposite sides. You wouldn’t find a nicer fellow.
