Angela Bishop Left 'Devastated' Over Husband's Death
Angela Bishop, the popular Aussie showbiz reporter and daughter of ex-politician Bronwyn Bishop, has been left “devastated” by the death of her husband, Peter Baikie.
Baikie, 54, was diagnosed with a “rare form of cancer” in February 2016.
Many had been unaware how ill he had become in recent months.
"It is with a heavy heart that Angela Bishop, family and friends advise you of the passing of Angela's much-loved husband, Peter Baikie.
"Peter is the adored father of Amelia, brother of Wendy Rylance, cherished son-in-law of Bronwyn Bishop and brother-in-law of Sally Bishop.
"His courage in fighting this disease left all that shared his journey full of immense admiration. He found his tower of strength in his wife Angela and the love of his daughter Amelia.
"Peter was a car fanatic, a motorbike lover and a gifted mechanic. He embraced life with all it had to offer him - but without doubt his family and friends were the highlights in his world," the statement said.
"The love shown to Angela and family during his final days by Peter's circle of friends is testament to the man he was. He will be dearly missed but forever loved."
The statement said he passed away peacefully, surrounded by family and friends on Wednesday.
