Tribute to Peter Mason

2017-08-16 06:05

MUCH respected and popular, ex-Greytonian Peter Mason died last Thursday, 10 August.
Born in Cairo in 1930, Peter and his wife Esme moved to Greytown in the mid-1950’s when he took over Greytown Drugstore.
The couple with their warmth, generosity and community spirit soon became an integral part of the community involved in the Catholic church, social welfare and sport.

Peter was a gentleman of infinite wisdom, compassion and an amazing sense of humour. He gave so much to so many sectors of the community.
He was a councillor, the Deputy Mayor of Greytown, a founder member of Rotary and a staunch defender of human rights earning the respect of all in Umvoti and further afield.

Peter retired from Greytown Drugstore in 1998 and later moved to Gauteng when Esme died and he went to live with his family.

His long-standing business colleague, Brayn Paul said of Peter, “He will always be remembered as the nicest gentleman you could ever meet.”

A memorial service will be arranged by the family in Greytown in December.
