Epsom Coaches is mourning the loss of Peter Duke, a long-standing member of its bus operations team.

Prior to starting his 13-year stint with Epsom Coaches, Peter was for many years with London Country Bus services, based in Leatherhead and was a well-known figure on the local bus scene. Peter had bravely battled cancer for more than a year.

Paying tribute, Epsom Coaches Managing Director, Steve Whiteway, said: “Peter was a much valued member of our close-knit team. He was an expert on all aspects of bus operations, due to his wealth of experience, having spent his working life in the bus industry. We were very lucky to have him. More importantly, Peter was an absolute gentleman, who had high standards. Always immaculately presented, he was very popular with all our staff and clients alike. He is irreplaceable and will be sorely missed. We send our sincere condolences to Peter’s family and are offering every support at this difficult time.”

Peter’s funeral will be held at Randall’s Park, Leatherhead on Friday (July 1) at 1230hrs.
