Story

Thank you for visiting Peter's  fundraising page.

Peter was born on 23rd April 1943 in Newcastle Upon Tyne, son to Reg and Fay Sutton.

Peter's career began at the age of 16 working as a Clapper Loader on 'The Four Horseman of the Apocalypse' following in his father's footsteps.  He then went on to work in Reeds Colour Labs in Wardour Street where he obtained his Union Card and began his long standing association with Samuelson Film Services.  He freelanced for over 40 years in film and television.

Peter's job took him around the world working with many modern greats.  Loyal and well respected by his peers and colleagues, he was nominated for numerous accolades; the pinnacle of his career receiving an Academy Award for Best Sound in 1980 for 'The Empire Strikes Back'.

Throughout his latter years, Peter suffered with numerous health problems not least becoming an amputee at the beginning of 2007.  He bravely faced every obstacle in his way however over recent months his health deteriorated resulting in his final stay in hospital.  In true Peter style he fought courageously but once diagnosed with Leukaemia lost his final battle.

Peter passed away peacefully on Sunday August 24th 2008 at 7pm surrounded by his family.  He leaves behind his wife Glynis, daughter Emma, son Jonathan, sister Jenifer and father Reg.

We have chosen Leukaemia Research as Peter's chosen charity in the hope that their valuable work will benefit and save lives in the future.

Donating through Justgiving is quick, easy and totally secure. It’s also the most efficient way to sponsor me: Leukaemia Research gets your money faster and, if you’re a UK taxpayer, Justgiving makes sure 25% in Gift Aid, plus a 3% supplement, are added to your donation.

Thank you for your support.
