Condolence from Louis J Landry on December 28th, 2020 6:59 pm

My deppest condolesences to Joan and Peter’s entire family. Peter was a true Trooper and very loyal QGSAR volunteer. During some of his country drives he would visit me here in Port Mouton with Joan. Though Peter was not 100%, he always answered and rarely missed any QGSAR call for an emergency search or regular meeting. Peter was a very proud member and as noted by Kerry Gallant, he could sell as many raffle tickets given to him. Peter was a 25+ year volunteer for QGSAR team, which is actually quite a big bucket full of service to his Queens County and Nova Scotia Community. Today Peter; during a silent salute, I thank you for your fine community example and for unselfish service. Rest in peace Brother!
