Farewell Peter Torkoniak

Hi From BT MR Staff,
Pete Torkoniak.jpg
Noel Garlick posted a notice regarding the sad news of Pete's death.

I am sorry to announce the death our colleague and fellow 69er Pete Torkoniak on the 21st June. Pete had been ill for some time and finally past away peacefully. He had worked on trunk test in Dial House, before moving to Germany to live. As yet we have no funeral information.

In Pete's own words from his profile:

School: North Manchester Grammar School in Moston till 1968
GPO mainly Dial House, Works Orders and Trunk Test till 1973
Used to live in Blackley, Riverdale Road. It was a lovely area in those days.
Munich, Germany: moved to Munich to earn more money and see more of Europe:
Worked in Munich as a waiter till I learnt he language then Telecom-Technician, then Computer Systems Engineer, then Head of Operations Dep't at a US computer company.
Now a pensioner another ol' git

We still don't have any funeral details, but as Pete's funeral is likely to be in Germany it would be difficult to attend. If other details emerge to the contrary we will send out another update.
