Farewell to Peter Lynch

It is with great sadness that we mourn the death of Peter Anthony Lynch on 26 Jan 2017. He and his partner were both killed in a tragic light plane accident in Western Australia.

Peter attended De La Salle College Cronulla in 1980 and 1981, and De La Salle College Caringbah from 1972-79.  Before that, Peter was a student at St Francis De Salles college in Woolooware.

He was an exuberant, fun-loving kid who graduated from UNSW as a mining engineer.
While a student, Peter was elected the President of the UNSW Students Union.

Peter later became an influential figure in the mining industry in Australia and internationally, and a renowned aviator who restored the Evans Head Historic Aerodrome, creating a museum of aviation history.

Peter is survived by his three children, their mother Laura, his mum Judy Lynch and siblings Helen, Robyn, Matthew and David.
