A short life but not a wasted one: friends gather from near and far to celebrate life of Peter McAvoy

Humanist celebrant Brenda Reid told Tuesday’s audience in the Woodlands Hotel: “The sad irony of his life is that he was born on Saturday August 17 1991 just before kick-off time. He died on Saturday April 19 2014 just before 5pm, around the time of the final whistle in a football match,” reports The Dundee Courier
