Born on December 7, 1939. Passed away August 14, 2021.

Loving Husband of Marjolyn and father to Darren, Luana and Sarah


You held our hands when we were small, you caught us when we fell

The hero of our childhood and the latter years as well.


Every time we think of you, our hearts just fill with pride

And though we will always miss you dad, we know you are by our side.


In laughter and in sorrow, in sunshine and in rain

We know you are watching over us, until we meet again.


Rest in peace dad x

  2. Growing up with Peter, inevitably I followed into panel beating and spray painting. We worked for several panel beaters at Horsham, Ballarat and Melbourne, sharing accommodation and life experience. I recall Peter twice persuading employers to give their migrant employees a chance to learn panel work. Both men gained careers within the trade. Peter recognized eagerness and aptitude to give others a go.
    Highly regarded for repairing difficult jobs, he would see ways to strain crumpled vehicles back to shape then finish metal to as good as new. His work required the least preparation to achieve a good paint job. Peter attributed his left – handedness as an advantage manipulating panel working tools; when that era required skills, rather than replacing or writing off.
    Working for others limited him, consequently he created his own opportunities.
    From those years I fondly acknowledge Lily and Paul (both deceased) and Darren and Luana.

  7. Mr Peter O’Beirne, how do you describe him, I will try. Peter and I and others including his brother Chris and John Mc Mc Kinnon have be good friends and mates for over 40 years, we have had some great times together, had a few drinks along the way and celebrated life and mateship. We have all been grateful of Peter’s help when we have needed it and in return we have helped him, it has be a 2 way street and we have all embraced it. 25 years ago I asked Peter for help to meet a new partner as he was married to his lovely wife Margie. He arrange me to meet my now wife Ivy and I haven’t looked back thankyou Peter. We have been pretty much inseparable since. All those long talks over the kitchen table, discussing the world problems, I sure we solved a few. Being with you over the last couple of years especially the last 12 months has been hard seeing you slipping away. I new the day would come to say goodbye but it has been really hard. A great mate, a great bloke, we would love to send you off with a great farewell. We will find a way. Farewell Peter, I love you as a great mate.
    Regards, Alan.
