Loving husband of 37 years to Meryle (nee Gibson). Proud and loving father of Dr. Brenda and Christopher Berge.

In 2007, he was inducted to the Lacrosse Hall of Fame. In 2006, Peter was inducted to the St. Catharines Sports Hall of Fame with children, grandchildren and Wally Thorne by his side, receiving the honour at the event from Jean Beliveau of the Montreal Canadiens.
