Very saddened to hear about the passing of Duncan Pegg. We first met at Griffith University more than 20 years ago & have been friends & allies ever since. He will be missed by so many in the Party & across the community. Thoughts with his family. https://t.co/VMDbtLZAz4
This is heartbreaking. Duncan Pegg was a kind, committed, honourable and principled man who brought the best values of empathy, hard work and community to political office. My love to his incredible family, who were so proud of him. #qldpol#auspolhttps://t.co/MwfIPmo4NY
#qldpol has lost a true gentleman. A man who studied Mandarin to be able to better communicate with his constituents. A man whose community would have done anything for him. Vale Duncan Pegg. 40 years forever young. pic.twitter.com/fXDxQ45rLi
Unbearably sad news today of Duncan Pegg’s passing. Sending love & strength to his wonderful mum, dad and brothers & to so many others touched by his humility, generosity & compassion. We’ll never forget him, his friendship, or his service to our community. #qldpol#auspolpic.twitter.com/UEyppXmF7b
Qld Labor MP Duncan Pegg, the Member for Stretton, has died of cancer. Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said Pegg was well-liked in the community and parliament and “showed politics could be a force for good”. A by-election will be held for his seat.
Vale Duncan Pegg. A wonderful man and politician who has left us too soon. A terrible loss for his family, friends and the ALP. I had the pleasure of launching Duncan’s 2015 campaign launch and helping him again more recently. I held him in the highest esteem. What a tragedy.
I’m very sad to read of the passing of my local State MP Duncan Pegg. A savage cancer took his young life today. He was a Labor MP but he reached out in a respectful and genuine way to me. My thoughts are with his family and close friends.
