Peter Parr (IA) OAM, has passed away in Sydney Australia. He was the son of Frank Parr, the brother of David Parr, and operated a successful chess business in Sydney for 40 years. He captained the Australian Olympiad team 6 times, became an International Arbiter in 1978, and was awarded the Order of Australia Medal for services to chess.
This is very sad news. His father Frank, was very well known on the English chess scene, a regular at the British Chess Championships. Know that Peter had a thriving business in Australia, supplying chess equipment, and books. His elder brother David, died in 2003, the same year as his father.
