My sincere condolences to family. Peter enjoyed coming for his piano lessons although the first five minutes was already taken up with spoiling Nicki. As it was a late endeavour for anyone to take on he flourished with memorizing a few songs he enjoyed playing.

I met Peter through Toastmasters and got to see hi flourish as a wonderful inspirational storyteller. His outlook on life, his smile, and his wisdom in all things often gave me the strength i needed in my own life. he was a caring wonderful soul and I'm so deeply saddened to learn of his passing. There will never be another like him.

Sincere condolences to Paul, Colleen and Natasha (Kyle), Nathaniel (Alysha), Connor (Becca) and Shane. As well as, to his great-grandchildren Sydney, Monica and Hayden.
I am very grateful to have met Peter and consider him to be my "special friend." Doing on-line business with him, he constantly amazed me with his enthusiasm, insight and zest for life. How he embraced computer skills, was inspiring to say the least.
When I had the opportunity to meet Peter in person at a business meeting in Toronto, I was reassured that he was the gentle, kind and considerate gentleman I was expecting to meet.
I will miss you Peter and our wonderful conversations about any and all topics. We had many laughs together.
You have left your kind and gentle mark on everyone you have met.
Heaven just gained an angel and you are reunited with your beloved Helen.

One of my favorite memories of Peter is when we did a video together, we called ourselves "The Xe Rappers" , we were in business together, and they had a contest, so we decided to do a fun video explaining our product. We had so much fun doing this Peter came up with the bright idea to have a funny ending ,he taped a sign that he made, where it had "The End" written on it , he had it on his behind. Peter had a wonderful sense of humor.
I have known Peter since 2007, we met at Toastmasters, and continued a friendship.
I will miss him dearly RIP Peter

I am proud to call Peter a good friend and also a business partner. He was a generous individual and we enjoyed many fish and chips meals during our friendship ... it was our favourite activity on Fridays, and we always shared an order of mushy peas! We had many conversations about subjects of an esoteric flavour and I shall miss his input and wisdom. Knowing how much he missed Helen, I know he is now in a happier place where many of our questions are now answered. RIP Peter!

Dear Family & friends,

I knew Peter for close to 15 years as a toastmaster. He was soft spoken and very kind, always willing to help. Peter would often share stories about hid dog Pepe, which I enjoyed tremendously. Pepe always had a unique perspective on things. I learned much about patience through peter and had many occassion to share thoughts. He will be greatly missed.
Please take the time to cherish these memories of a dear person and ensure his immortality in our hearts and minds.

Dear Family,
I am so sad to learn of Peter's passing. Please accept my heartfelt condolences on his loss. He had a large presence and a sweet soul.
I met Peter over 10 years ago when we were both members of the Grand River Toastmasters Club. He drew me to him with his gift of gab and friendliness. His speeches were witty and original. When I got to know him, he didn’t disappoint: he was approachable, lively, kind, and charming - on and off the podium. I will remember him fondly.
