I heard some distressing news from someone today on the subject of asbestos and the predicted rise in related diseases over the coming years. We got onto the names of some people affected and Peter Leonard’s name was mentioned. I was surprised by this and prompted for further details. The member of our group who brought up his name elaborated, stating she was an acquaintance of the family and a few months after retiring, Peter became somewhat ill. According to this person, he was diagnosed with an “asbestos related conditions“, likely caused by some home renovations years back and he has “around 3 months“. I grew up with Peter Leonard reading the news, and being beamed into your home every night they become a part of the family almost. I was wondering if anyone could confirm or deny this, hopefully the latter.
