With much love, admiration and respect we honour a remarkable man.
Allan Pettigrew was our dad, our pa, our brother but he was so much more…
He was a much loved and respected member of the Wallsend community, he was a successful businessman and Allan was a visionary.
He was a giver not a taker. He was honest and loyal. He was a good man.
Allan Pettigrew was a devoted family man. He loved his wife, Sylma and he took pride in the achievements of his family. Allan enjoyed the simple things in life, finding contentment and joy in his garden.
He was a much loved, and respected member of the Wallsend community. He was honest and loyal, putting the needs of others before his own. He achieved much in his 88 years and yet, he always spoke humbly of those achievements.
Allan was generous to those in his employment, treating them more as friends than staff. He fostered a culture of respect, care and trust and they, in return, honoured him with their loyalty and gratitude.
