Pete Boddy

It’s with great sadness that we say farewell to our friend Pete Boddy, a long-time Chorus member, who passed away on 2 November 2023 at Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital at the age of 78.

Pete was a beloved father, husband to Liz (pictured beside him at the annual barbershop convention), grandfather and great-grandfather, friend to many, and a much-respected figure in his community. During the COVID pandemic Pete’s community spirit was caught on camera for our Lean On Me video, volunteering at a local vaccination centre.

Not only was Pete a stalwart of our Bass section, with a resonant voice, but he also served on the FCC committee, managed the wardrobe – and this website – and was often our official photographer if he wasn’t singing!

With many warm and grateful memories of Pete, we are keeping his family in our thoughts and sending them heartfelt condolences. Please feel free to contribute to Pete’s nominated charities in his memory, via
