On 27th April at the Age of 83, Peter Henshaw EI5JE became a silent key following a short illness. He was pre-deceased by his beloved wife, Peggy, and is survived by his daughter Miriam and two sons, Conor and Paul, grandchildren Rachel, Erin, Kristen, Luke and great grandson Cody.
An ex-employee of Aer Lingus, Peter attended radio theory classes in South Dublin Radio Club, following which he obtained his amateur radio licence in 1999. Amateur radio became his big passion, however he also considered photography, travel, photography and jazz among his many other interests.
Peter was a very enthusiastic and, indeed, entertaining member of South Dublin Radio Club, often recounting his interesting on-air chats during the club’s Tuesday night meetings. He was a Dad, a Grandad and a great-Grandad who will be greatly missed by his family and his many friends, may he rest in peace.
