    Knowing Peter from his younger days and good mate of my brother Brien. I am sure there are many funny stories that could could be told.
    He always had a very cheeky gin and happy disposition up until the last time I saw him a few years ago.

    Doc Mannix you will be sorely missed by all of your old squash and golf mates.
    Strange how an accountant struggled with numbers when it came to golf scores.!
    The table of knowledge will never be the same
    A good man.

    A great friend to the whole Simmonds family, our thoughts are with the whole Manix family at this sad time.

    No doubt you and old mate Simmo are downing a couple quiet ones and taking the mickey at the “New” table of knowledge!! RIP Doc.

    Dear Lyn and family.
    Met Pete in the 70’s as a squash competitor and then we led Mulgrave squash group into the 90’s. Peter then guided my business as the company accountant where the company flourished as a result of his advice.
    Our sincere sympathy to Lyn and family and we will always be grateful for Pete’s friendship and accounting skills.
    A true friend with a great sense of humour.
    Rest In Peace. Doc.
