Remembering our Valley great Peter Gardiner

Remembering our Valley great Peter Gardiner

Three of PG's great mates - from their younger days and cricket together - were L-R Warwick Knill, Garry Noonan and Alan Sutherland. Moonee Valley great Peter "PG" Gardiner was remembered fondly by the huge crowd who attended his funeral on Friday, October 18, and again at a celebration of his life at the Moonee Valley bowling club rooms later that day.

PG had a huge impact on the Moonee Valley cricket, bowls and football clubs, and the hundreds of attendees were a testament to just how much he touched us.

His brother and fellow Moonee Valley Cricket Club Life Member Kevin Gardiner spoke eloquently at the funeral, and MVCC co-founder Ray Storey and Peter's daughter Jessie gave some wonderful insights into the man and his life.

Back at the bowling club, friends and colleagues from across the three clubs were given an open microphone to share their recollections of Peter.

PG's passing brought together a Who's Who of the Moonee Valley Cricket Club, including Life Members Laurie Mayne, Darren Nagle, Sandro Capocchi, Greg Peters, Michael Harvey, Ray Storey, Ian Sutherland, Warwick Nolan, Jim McKenzie and Charlie Walker.

Above are PG's life-long mates (L-R) Warwick Knill, Garry Noonan and Alan Sutherland.

We'll all miss him.
