Goodbye to a great friend and fellow head-fi member...

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 

I just learned today that a good old friend of mine died two months ago. Peter, or Petery83 as he was known here, was never much of a poster, but he was a great friend with a deep love for music and hi-fi in general. I met him not long after I joined head-fi at a meet held at the UE factory in Irvine. We met by the coincidence that we were both students at the same school and we teamed up for a human anatomy competition there at the UE factory to win, some then new and unreleased Super-fi Pro's. It was a blast and we remained in contact for many years thereafter.

 

He left head-fi and hi-fi in general to follow his dream of becoming a doctor and begin his study of medicine. Before he left the state to study medicine,  we got to hang out for a while and listened to a lot of music together. He even graciously offered to give me all of his gear. I said no and he jokingly said "Well, fine, how about if you just hold on to it for me until I come back." We laughed and I still declined and told him that I would feel bad if it ever got nicked or damaged. 

 

That was the last day I saw him in person, nearly four years ago. We kept in touch but we were both too busy to do it often unfortunately.

 

I hope he knows he is and was missed dearly.

It appears he died of cardiac arrest.

Sorry to hear of his passing and my best wishes to his family and friends.

Wish he would have spent a little more time posting here - I would have liked to have known him better.

R.I.P Peter

 

No amount of words can ever fully express such a loss. Just makes you stop and think how short and fragile a life can be.

I always told him to post more...but he was a bit reserved when it came to posting. I always told him it was a shame as he had great taste in music and a fantastic sense of humor.

My condolences. It's always tough when excellent people with so much to offer are no longer here to share themselves with us.

Rest in peace my dear friend. You'll be greatly missed! Thanks for the music, the laughs, and the Cubans.

I only spoke with him briefly at meets and at the UE tour. He was a super nice guy.

 

I remember at the end of the UE tour I was walking around kind of aimlessly in the parking lot because I parked far away from the office and he drove up to me and asked if I needed a ride somewhere. I hadn't even really spoken to him or anyone at the UE thing because I was a total noob and didn't know anything about hi-fi.  But he was happy to help a total stranger. Would've been a great doctor I'm sure.   

 

Very sad to lose someone like that.
