Dear Margaret, David and family. I was so sorry to hear of Peter's passing. Like others I have so many fond memories of Peter and his commitment and dedication to serving others. He taught me much as a mentor, role model and tormentor, I Ioved him dearly. I'm sorry I was out of the country at the time of his service. Keeping all of you in thought and prayer. Sincerely Mike

My heartfelt condolences go out to Margaret, David and their family at this sad time. I knew Peter as a dedicated volunteer at Central Presbyterian Church who always had a smile and a hug for me. He was also a dedicated member of the church choir. He will be dearly missed by all who knew him. Rest in peace my friend.

My heart goes out to all those that knew and loved you dearly. Peter you always made me smile even on my worsted days. You always made me laugh and your hugs always cheered my sad heart. You always thought about all of us girls on those special days and brought us all Reids chocolate roses. Your kind soul will live forever in our hearts.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Margaret, David, Linda, Brianna and Nathan. Karen and I were saddened to hear of Peter's passing. He was not only a fellow worker but a good friend. I really got to know Peter better after we retired from policing and both worked at Adesa the auto auction. He was always upbeat and friendly no matter his health issues. He entertained the staff and was well respected for his work and friendliness. And oh yes his bag of mints he would hand out ! Whenever we talked on the phone, he would always say " say hi to Karen ". He would always end the conversation with " take care champ ". Until we meet again my friend, Take Care Champ.

My deepest sympathy to you Margaret and David. It was my privilege and honour to have worked with Peter for most of my career. My memories of Peter, his kindness, professionalism and integrity will stay with me forever. Other memories are best shared over a glass. Unfortunately I am unable to attend the Memorial as I will be at another at the same time.

Please accept our profound condolences on Peter's passing. He was a good co-worker and a very caring friend who could always make you smile. We regret we will not be able to attend the service on Saturday but that is the day of our grandson's Holy First Communion and we have been given two of the four seats and are holding the reception at our home. Please know we will be with you in spirit and in prayer.
