Andrew-Tributes

Shown below are some of the tributes that have been made to Andrew by friends and Associations that he has been involved in.

It is with a feeling of deep sadness, that I have to inform you of the death of Andrew Peek (Peeky to his friends). Andrew died in his sleep early on Friday morning (1st May 2015).

Many of us will remember him as the lefty with that incredibly high back swing & extreme amount of rev’s. He represented Tolworth YBC, Surrey County, YAC’s, Portsmouth University and BUCS (British University Bowling).

One of the memories I have of Andrew is his 816 he hit during the Surrey Trials held at AMF Purley back in 2007 & this was followed up with a 806 series in the Manor Glass League at Tolworth. Later that year he hit the perfect game.

He passionately believed that those injured in the course of serving their country needed all the support possible to continue with their lives, even if it had different challenges than the life they had before.

Below is a link to a JustGiving account the family have setup in memory of Andrew.

The committee is deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Andrew Peek. Peeky (as he was known on tour), bowled for Portsmouth University during his student career, and continued to bowl on the BUTBA tour as an ex-student after he graduated.He was a member of the BUCS Rep Squad and was instrumental in organising the Rep Squad’s trip over to the USA in 2011 to compete in the USBC Open, and also designed and created the famous union jack shirts that were worn by the team on that trip.Whilst a fantastic competitor, Andy was often seen giving words of encouragement and advice to other bowlers, this was part of his selfless character.This is further demonstrated in that he passionately believed that those injured in the course of serving their country needed all the support possible to continue with their lives, even if it had different challenges than the life they had before and as a result if you would like to make a donation in his memory the link is below.Condolences to Andy’s family and friends.https://www.justgiving.com/Andrew-Peek/
Subsequently we have been asked if we would allow the Masters Trophy  to be dedicated in Andrew’s name and have been happy to agree to this request. During his time at university and afterwards through the ex-student section, Andrew thoroughly enjoyed his time  bowling in the events organised.

Surrey Area Bowling Association are hosting a re-entry doubles tournament in the memory of Andrew Peek who sadly passed away on the 1st of May 2015.

Andrew was involved in bowling from a very young age and represented Tolworth YBC, Surrey Area and BUCS university. He was a great bowler with a lot of talent.

Since Andrew’s passing his family have been raising money for the charity Help for Heroes. Andrew passionately believed that those injured in the course of serving their country needed all the support possible to continue with their lives, even if it had different challenges than the life they had before.

This tournament is to commemorate Andrew and raise further funds for his favourite charity Help for Heroes in his memory.

Please find the time to enter at least one squad and lets make this a massive success.

 

A very special thanks to all who contributed to a very special photographic tribute to Andrew.

There many special comments which we found comforting but one at the end is very special and moving  due to the event planned for next year for Lewis and Holly.
Peeky, we took BUCS international, toured California and partied in Las Vegas. I will never forget, those memories will live on. A seat is reserved at our wedding for you on our table. Miss you Andy. Love Lewis and Holly.

Hi,

Thank you for visiting my Tough Mudder fund raising page.

Following the recent passing away of a very close friend of mine, Andrew Peek (age 25) on 1st May 2015, I felt it would be a good idea to do something I would never normally do in order to raise a big chunk of money for a cause he truly believed in. So I signed up for a 14 mile obstacle course (aka Tough Mudder) to be done in September 2015 with a group currently of about 12 of us all raising money towards the same cause.

Andrew (known by all his friends as Peeky), was always a strong believer in Help for Heroes, believing in their mission and the difference they are making with the lives of our wounded heroes.

Please donate whatever you can, its all going to a great cause which Peeky truly believed in so lets really make a difference and make him proud!

As many of you visiting my page may know, my best friend Andrew ‘Peeky’ Peek sadly passed away on the 1st May 2015. At 25 he was taken from us far too soon and will forever leave a large hole in everyone’s lives that he touched.

He was a big supporter of the Help for Heroes charity and fully believed in all of the great work that they do for our veterans. In light of this, myself and a group of our friends will be participating in September’s Tough Mudder challenge in Peeky’s memory, with all donations going to Help for Heroes.

Tough Mudder is a 14 mile endurance event with with military style obstacles designed to test your physical strength and mental determination. It’s often referred to as one of the toughest endurance challenges out there and I know Peeky wouldn’t have wanted us to do it any other way! We will be doing the challenge on 26th September in Winchester, here’s a quick video of what it should be like – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kUwXTfWxCTM

Please donate whatever you can, I know it will be greatly appreciated by myself, his friends and family. Lets see if we can make something truly positive come out of everything that has happened!

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

So I have signed up to do tough mudder with a group of friends in memory of one the greatest guys on earth, Andrew Peek. Peeky was a great fan of help for heroes as am I and when he recently went to go and party with the Angels we decided to raise money in his memory.

If that is not a good enough reason to donate then this might be.. Anyone that knows me knows I hate running, heights and small spaces… Which is pretty much what this thing is about! It’s gonna be the most challenging thing I have ever done to date and I would only do this for a bloody good reason which is Peeky! So please whatever you can afford pennies, pounds, gold bars if you really want.. Just do it! Thanks in advanced and much love to you all! You really do not know what you have got until it’s gone xxxx
