John D. Younie RIP

John D Younie (Peter's father)Peter Younie's father died on Easter Sunday. His distinguished war record and his major rôle in the shoe industry, both in England and in Italy, will be written about elsewhere.

We are commemorating him here because of the essential part that he played in the conception and development of Cameron Peters Fine Lighting. He lived in Florence, and it was visiting him there, visiting lighting shops and buying lights that they commissioned from local craftsmen, that gave Peter and Cheryl the idea for Cameron Peters. His continuing support and interest never flagged. So we all owe him a great deal.

This also means that there will be a skeleton service only at Cameron Peters Fine Lighting, and no further posts to Fine Lighting News, until after Cheryl and Peter have returned from Light+Building in Frankfurt on 18th April 2012.

He is shown here with his faithful dog, Goldy, who predeceased him. They grew old together. Now they are together again, free from physical infirmity.
