My name is Mark Pearson I am Andy's
brother and obviously remember Andy very well he is still
very much loved and missed by all his family.
Andy was killed in car accident on his
return to his ship in October 1984 ironically the accident
happened in Weymouth after travelling all the way from his
home town of Stockton-on-tees in the North East.
He was married to Carol who at the time
of his death was pregnant with Andy's daughter Hannah who is
now aged 22 and very beautiful and they look very much
I and my other brother Chris were very
close to Andy we were good mates even after the
odd scuffle, those you who
remember him may recall how accident prone and absent minded
he was, maybe that's why he forgot to mention his name 'Peabag'.
I remember once he was due to return to
his ship on the train but couldn't find his ticket which was
in his wallet we had the house in bits with everyone being
accused, at the last minute of all places we found the
wallet tucked nicely behind the cheese in the fridge that
was typical of him we had some good laughs.
Remember Peabag well .
I was on the Plymouth
with him and remember the wedding followed far too
closely by the funeral.
A great guy who always
had everyone in stitches. Another great guy that went
too early but is not forgotten.
