Old Cottonian Peter Rollo – Rivaz 1932-1942
Lived in Perth Australia.
Passed away on 10th January 2011.
It is with heavy heart that I convey the sad news of the passing away of a dear school friend of mine, Peter Rollo Rivaz House Captain in 1942. He died of a heart attack on the 10th January, at about 7.00pm while his family was with him at home. I became firm friends of him and his wife Thelma when we met up again in Perth Australia. Peter joined the Western Australia Police Force and retired as a Police Superintendent . Peter loved his old school. We would often get together to reminisce on our school days. Condolences to Thelma and family from Dick and Joan D’Abreu. Curzon 1936 -1946.
Please could print this tribute to my mate Peter.
17th January 2011 update: [celebrating Peter Rollo’s life]
I attended Peter Rollo’s funeral. It was a long ceremony at Thelma’s church. Many of his police friends were there together with his Aussie friends and friends that knew him in India. All the Rollo clan were there and his sons and daughters gave an account of their great life with their father. Evelyn Petters spoke on behalf of herself and all the OC’s that knew Peter. After the service we went over to Thelma’s home where we had eats and drinks. Thelma told me she had read the comments on Peter’s passing on the OCA web site. She was happy to know many had great memories of her husband Peter.
Attaching a photo of Peter on the cover of his funeral ceremony….
Cheers – Dick.
