Peter Utley 's sad death is a great loss to journalism and to those who read his articles. He brought mature reflection to his writing based on a clear realisation of what matters in life.
I found in working and in discussing issues with him he had a rare quality of mind. It was extraordinary how quickly he could order his thoughts.
There was also a great spiritual quality about him. Manners and courtesy were the mark of the man.
We shall all miss him.
