    Peter and Heather were part of the reason I moved to Featherston and opened up Chapelli’s next door to Lady Featherston . We had a lot of fun and great memories, he will be missed by a lot of people.

    Oh Peter. Every visit you would show me the new death notices in the paper with Gary Pickering funerals, and proudly point to Caroline’s photo and telling me “it’s a great one”. Never did I imagine I would be reading your notice. But now I imagine you showing me your notice and telling me “it’s not a great one”. Then we would figure out the 5 letter word. You usually figured it out before me. All your intelligence was still there, it was just hard getting it out in a way we could understand. Peter I really enjoyed our times together. Even if I was having a bad day, you would cheer me up with your joy for life. I keep hearing you laugh telling me it’s a great one. I’m really going to miss you. Rest in peace my friend xxx

    You walked the town of Featherston, with your smile & bag, we stopped to listen, we heard your stories & adventures…. you then waved us goodbye & went on your merry way. We now say goodbye to you, Peter March. Always remembered..

    Dear Heather and family, my sincere condolences at Peter’s death.

    Peter introduced me to my 24-year working career in Wellington and supported me as I learned my trade from him and our team. He was bouncy, outgoing and a pleasure to work with. While I have been retired for 10 years I recall with pleasure many shared moments with him at the helm of our small team.

    My love and best wishes as you work through this time of loss.
    Rex, Cromwell
