Terribly sad news emerged on Thursday, of the passing of Pete Power. Together with his wife Moire O’Sullivan, and their wee boys Aran & Cahal, they have in recent years settled in Rostrevor and become an integral part of the vibrancy of our Tollymore Orienteers hub.
I know you will join with me in expressing condolences to Moire, Aran, Cahal and Pete’s wider group of family & friends.
Moire has made a very thoughtful request. She wants to capture and preserve everyone’s memories of Pete for their young boys. She has asked if you wish, to write the boys a letter, tell them about happy / fun / sad / getting-lost stories that they can read about in years to come. These can be sent direct to them (address below) and I can also gather up any that you don’t send through directly.
Funeral notice follows. Moire, Aran & Cahal, our thoughts are with you all. May he rest in peace.
The death has occurred of Pete Power of 44 Newtown Road, Rostrevor, Co. Down, BT34 3BZ and formerly of Monadiha, Rathgormack, Carrick-on-Suir, Co. Waterford.
Beloved husband of Moire, father to Aran and Cahal, and owner of Tom. Sadly missed by his loving parents, Robert and Bridget-Anne, brother Ken, sisters Yvonne, Tara and Mary, aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews, extended family and friends. Rest in Peace.
