COMINOS, Peter George O.A.M

Born 12th November 1928. Died 15th November 2019.

Peter passed away peacefully at his home, The Cairns Aged Care Centre at Chapel Hill, surrounded by his loving family. He is sadly missed. Loving husband of Cecilia. Beloved father and father-in-law of Belle & Richard, Diane & Chris, Maria & Rowan. Treasured Grandfather of Daniel, Alexander, Jemma, and Georgianna, and step grandfather of Morgan and Paris. Brother of Manuel & Toula, brother-in-law of Lene, Lily (D’ced) and John (D’ced) and uncle of David & Helen.

Peter lived his last years in Brisbane, but his heart always held a special place for Cairns, Far North Queensland; for his Cairns home, all his friends and colleagues and the beauty of the North.

The funeral service will be privately held in Brisbane, according to family wishes.

There is truly no need for flowers, but it would be wonderful if you remembered him fondly now and then.

To know him was to love him, the world is a sadder place without him.

In honour of Peter’s life Donations can be made to the Far North Queensland Youth Assistance Fund Trust ( or The IDEAS VAN travelling remote Queensland to treat blindness.
