Peter (Bran­den­burg) Rucks (born 1955) passed away on 31/​12/​2009 after a brave bat­tle with pan­cre­atic can­cer. He was a fun lov­ing, crazy guy who was all about fam­ily. His incred­i­ble sense of humour will be his legacy. Pete was an tal­ented artist and sculp­tor and was a much respected TAFE Arts lec­turer. He left behind his part­ner, Mag­gie and two chil­dren, Jessie-​Claire and Hugo. Pete had two other broth­ers who attended Scar­bor­ough, Cyril (Bran­son) Bran­den­burg and Robert Bran­den­burg. His youngest brother Jay Bran­son did not attend Scar­bor­ough SHS.
