Peter was a happy man who was content and grateful for every day. He was a successful farmer who built a vegetable farming business that supplied many Winnipeg area grocers for decades. He loved to experiment with new crops and innovative ideas. He was a hardworking, determined, practical, wise, and gentle man who loved to laugh and had a keen sense of humour. Most of all, he loved his family.
He was predeceased by his wife Lily (2007), and survived by his six children and six grandchildren. He lived a Christian life, was a member of Grant Memorial Baptist Church for over 50 years and occasionally preached at Union Gospel Mission.

Hello, my name is Larry Meyer, one of Peter's nephews, the youngest son of the late Sidney Meyer, Peter's oldest brother. I have fond memories of being a young boy, often travelling to Winnipeg with my Dad to the various vegetable wholesalers where we would frequently meet uncle Peter and sometimes uncle Leo as well. What I can remember so well is when the three of them got together there was a lot of laughter and stories. Peter and his family would come to visit at our farm in Beausejour once in awhile. I could tell that Peter was very gentle and kind, with an inner-strength that came from his faith. My wife Dorothy met Peter quite a few times when she was a teenage girlfriend accompanying me driving loads of vegentables to Winnipeg early in the morning. Dorothy would comment fondly on the drive back home on how the three of them (Sidney, Peter, and Leo) all had the same mannerisms and smile. We have a cherished photo of the Meyer family when they were leaving Holland setting sail for Canada. Peter was just a baby in the photo and my Father was 14 years old. I am so sorry for you, his family, on your loss. I would be at the service on Saturday but coincedentally my wife's mother, the grandmoher of our children, passed away today at the age of 94 and her funeral is exactly the same day and time as Peter's service.
