One of the longest playing accordionists in Auckland, New Zealand, John Petrie, was a player in the North Shore Musicale Accordion Orchestra for over 25 years, unexpectedly passed away on 8th July 2008.
John is survived by his wife Frances who said that John had a very happy last day playing with the Mandolinata Orchestra and a lovely dinner. He was then reading a book and watching the TV when he passed away.
The funeral on the 15th July was a ceremonial event as John Petrie was a Scots Guard. The last post was played, each guard coming individually to the coffin, standing to attention then a bow, and when the cofin was taken out they formed a honour guard.
Our thoughts are with Frances at this sad time. John and his Scottish accent will be sadly missed by accordionists in New Zealand.
