R.I.P. PETER MATHEWS

Yesterday, Peter was tragically killed in a two motorcycle collision near RYLSTONE, NSW whilst returning from ‘The Annual WALL 2 WALL ride’.

A Dr Keith BRENNAN was on the scene with Peter receiving Emergency care by the subject doctor and fellow members of “The Newy Crew” who tried desperately to bring him home. Unfortunately, they were unsuccessful with Peter passing away in the care of his mates…

Thoughts go out to his wife Kate & family

Police Ode

As the sun surely sets: dawn will see it arise,

for service, above self, demands its own prize.

You have fought the good fight: life’s race has been run, and peace, your reward, for eternity begun.

And we that are left, shall never forget, rest in peace friend and colleague, for the sun has now set.

We will remember.

Hasten the dawn.

From the old Maroubra days through to the brilliant times I spent with you and beautiful Kate in Newcastle including bridesmaid at your wedding. So many wonderful memories of a genuine great bloke. Devastated.
All my love to Kate and the family.

Rest peacefully my old mate Peter. I will miss you mate and your friendship. You were a great husband, dad, son and cop. I loved working with you Pete as you never took a step backwards and had a heart like Pharlap. You always had our backs in Hunter Region SWOS and even everyday policing, especially helping you out with your multitude of important search warrants. I loved playing touch footy with you mate and we pulled the hell out a lot bigger guys in the tug -o- war at the Sydney police Olympics in 1988. You adored your beautiful wife Kate and your family. I hope they are all okay but am sure they are hurting terribly and missing you so much. Till we catch up again brother, rest well and be proud that you lived a wonderful life and was loved by all of us.
Your brother Dazza  x
