So sorry to hear of Peter’s passing. Many fond memories of growing up in the pre-fabs. Keep your memories close to your hearts…thinking of you all at this very difficult time.
To all Peters family was so shocked to hear the news about Peter. Went to high school with Peter and he was so happy to get home to the class reunion last year and was looking forward to the next one. Treasure the memories you have of him and he will never go unforgotten. Rest in Peace Peter.
I am in shock this morning and broken hearted. I had the chance to spend a wonderful evening with Peter at the class reunion last year after not seeing him for 30 some years. He told me stories about his life in the U.S. and stories about the love of his life, that he didn’t get to spend enough time with. He was so proud of his present job but he did so love being Fire Chief. I send my love to his children that he was so proud of and to his family. I was his neighbour and friend; and am so sad that he left us so early.
Judy,Ingram,Jane & family,so sorry to hear of the passing of Peter.Keep his memories close till you meet again.In my thoughts & prayers,

Words can’t express the shock I felt when I heard of Peter’s passing. I was (and still am) proud to consider him a fellow person of God. He faithfully filled God’s call for his life and now he is at home with the Lord. Although he is gone, he will live on in the hearts and minds of everyone who knew him. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time, and I pray that God will give you the strength you need as you face the difficult days ahead.
Judy , Ingram and family, I am so sorry for your loss. You will be in my thoughts in the coming days as you deal with your loss.

It seems like only yesterday we were all kids laughing and playing together without a care in the world . Where has the time gone ? I can still see Peter running down the road when the fire alarm went off and how the first Firefighter going by would stop to pick him up . Now that showed dedication ! I remember Peter as a soft spoken , and very kind person and I am very Grateful that through Facebook we were able to keep in touch through the years . I am truly very sorry to hear of his passing . ♥

So hard to lose a loved one especially a child. Keep all your memories close to your heart to help you through these hard times.
Judy and Family,
So sorry to hear of your loss. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.
I wanted to let you know how much I grew to admire Peter over the past almost 10 years. He had such courage, determination, love of family, great intellect, community mindedness – always ready to respond to a crisis or to a person in need. He so enjoyed his connection with all his family and took great pleasure in watching his grandson grow. May God bless you all and ease your pain. Keep all Peter’s positive qualities in your hearts and a bit of his courage to get you through this difficult time.
