My sincere condolences to Albina and family on the loss of this lovely man. Having worked with Peter in recent years I was lucky enough to share a working relationship with a gentle, dignified, respectful, funny man who was always positive and 'sunny' every time we saw him. A very decent human being, a true gentleman. My prayers are with not only Peter's own family, but his 'Siebert' family as well, whom I know will be deeply saddened at the loss of their dear friend and colleague. God Bless. x

I was saddened to read of Peter's death. I have fond memories of my many conversations with Peter and Albina at Christian Supplies where I collected my hosts for my Hospital ministry. My prayers and thoughts are with you all Jane Marshall

My condolences to the De Palma family, Peter, you were the person anyone would want as a friend, relative, or Neighbour. Even without your achievements, your character alone was admired by many. Since primary school, I have shared a close friendship with your son, Paul. This has given me the privilege to know you well and consider you family. From as early as our teenage years, the boys and I would gather at your house before a night out. Now in our 40s, Izzi, Matty P and me have continued this ritual each time Paul is in Adelaide. Watching the Footy with you, talking about sports or any topic was the best. You could talk to anyone about anything, followed by a lot of laughter and funny stories. It’s sad knowing that the next time we visit, you will not be there. However, be sure we will be having a drink for you and talking about the many good memories we have. Cos Cirocco
