Peter Chappell

A personal appreciation by Graham Chappell

24th July 1933 to 3rd April 2017

Peter Chappell, who has died at 83, retired to Arran from a variety of highly-trained jobs, but who quickly became known as a singer, gardener, business advisor and accomplished speaker.

We had visited Arran as a family on many occasions since the 1970s. A house was purchased in Lochranza in 1992 and my parents moved up to the house full time in 1993.

Dad worked part-time for the local enterprise board and his spare time was taken up with the Arran Gilbert and Sullivan productions. One of the final shows, South Pacific, had dad wearing a coconut bra and a grass skirt. Mum tried, begged, me to go but I was doing my hair that night, sadly.
