Pete Stubbs sadly passed away on the evening of Sunday 26 September. Here, Nurture Landscapes – where Pete spent the last seven years – writes a tribute to the man who made a huge difference to the company and to the team.
Over the past year or so Pete had suffered with some serious medical issues which had left him with no real immune system and after fighting hard over the past few weeks, he finally succumbed to COVID.
Pete joined Nurture in March 2014 and played an integral part in shaping the Nurture business throughout the North and Scotland.
Over the past few years, he has run Nurture’s Scottish operation which he and his team have developed into a fabulous business with annual sales close to £4m.
Pete had a longstanding relationship with many people at Nurture, having initially joined Waterers Landscape in December 1997, so many in the industry had known Pete for over 23 years. Five years after joining Waterers, he moved to Mitie, then Continental, then ISS, then Glendale and finally realised the error of his ways and re-joined his old friends at Nurture in 2014.
Pete was a proper Northern lad, born and bred in Manchester, and a season ticket holder of Manchester City. He was a man of many talents who ran numerous marathons, played the guitar and loved to cook.
Most importantly, he was a kind and loving man whom everyone could totally rely on.
Our thoughts, prayers and love go out to his wife Annette and Pete’s sons.
He will be greatly missed.
