Lea, John Honeysett replying on Andrea’s Facebook page.

I was so shocked and saddened to hear of Peter’s passing.

Spraddy was a giant of a man in every respect. In 35 years in the cops and as Peter’s Local Area Commander at Mudgee I had the honour of meeting and working with one of the best Cops 👮‍♂️ you would find anywhere in the world. A very special and funny man with a generous manner. A heart of gold who cared for so many people from so many walks of life.

A true role model of what a real copper should be. We need more Peter Spradbrows out on our streets. The world would be a better place.

To this very day I consider myself so fortunate to have been extended an invitation to Spraddy’s Shed for many a famous card night.

Where else would the LAC be invited to enjoy a night with the troops and be so well accepted. I was truly blessed to have had a taste of Spraddy’s famous rabbit rissoles. I have so many fond memories of Peter’s humour and sayings.

Rest in Peace old mate. You have served your community well.

Lea and family I know you have a lot of pain at the moment but you can be well and truly proud of Peter. A great bloke and a fair and honest cop.
