Chris Peterson: Swagger, irreverence and good humour

I’m still in shock to hear of Chris Peterson’s death. My wife Mimi is devastated. 

Chris was a solid journalist, a terrific raconteur and a good friend.

We crossed paths often in Asia. Once when he and family visited Singapore we had such a great time at home Chris nearly drove away without one of his daughters. 

A certain swagger, his “you are not the boss of me” Irreverence and good humour were his hallmarks. He will be missed. 

Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Tuyet-Mai and family. May he rest in peace. ■
