Allan Peachey RIP

I heard late yesterday that Allan Peachey had died, the NZ Herald reports his death this morning.

National MP for Tamaki Allan Peachey has died.

Mr Peachey had been fighting illness for some time and it was confirmed this morning that he had died.

He had announced his retirement from politics last month because he did not think he would have been healthy enough to complete another three-year parliamentary term.

Mr Peachey was 61 years old.

My thoughts and prayers go out tot he family.
