It is with a sad heart I report our beloved long-time colleague and friend Peter Stickles died this morning at a local hospice.  He was 73.  He joined Hawthorn 25 years ago in 1995.

His charming, dry wit was exceeded only by his skill at the track.  He was a consummate professional, his loyalty unquestioned.

We will all miss him.

Typical of Peter, he requested no memorial service. 

Requiescat in pace.
