Peter Toon, 1939-2009

The Rev. Dr. Peter Toon died Saturday in San Diego, as the consequence of a degenerative disease called amyloidosis.

Toon was the president of the Prayer book Society of the USA, and probably this country’s leading expert on the book of Common Prayer. Last year, he prepared a modern language version of the 1662 BCP for the Evangelical wing of the Continuing Anglican community.

Toon’s skills would be greatly in demand during this period of Anglican realignment. We will certainly miss his talents, although our loss pales compared to that of his wife and daughter.
