Peter Prall

Peter at the Tall Ships in Falmouth August 2008

A crowd of Port Navas people, many straight off the river in their sailing gear, turned out on a sunny morning, Friday July 31st, for the dedication of a new bench at the Port Navas Village Hall. Peter Prall, who’d had a family home in the village for more than thirty years, passed away earlier this year.  Mary and the family decided that a bench on which others could pause a while in the village that Peter loved, would be a fitting memorial.

Peter’s great friend Brian Roper called the crowd to order and introduced Councillor Jim Boote, Chairman of the Village Hall Committee and the only one present in jacket and tie, to perform the dedication. Peter’s wife Mary was there with children and grandchildren, and Peter’s son Rob said a few words about his dad. It was a happy occasion on which to remember an absent friend.
