Kim, Tim and Rob.
We were heartbroken to hear of Pete's passing. What a shock. We echo what everyone has said. He was such a fun, positive and friendly guy. Great baseball player too. Loved our time on the slow pitch team with him. He always had a smile and kind word whenever we bumped into him. Such a loss for you.

We are think of you, Tim and Rob.

XOXO Sue, Bob, Kyle, Brandon and Alex McKeachie

Dear Kim and Tim, I am so very sorry to hear of Peters passing.
When I would run into him he always had a smile, a joke and made everyone laugh. Take care.

To say that the news of Pete’s death was shocking is a huge understatement. If there was ever a guy more full of life than Pete, I’d never known one. Not only was Pete too young to die (and he was) he still just had way too much to do yet - places to go, people to tease, stuff like that. My heart just breaks for his boys and for Kimmie.

I’m shocked and saddened by the loss of a wonderful friend, car enthusiast, gardener, fireworks pyrotechnic, and next door neighbour. Pete was the sort of guy who went out of his way to say hi, had time for a nice chat, and ALWAYS HAD a smile and wave to brighten your day. My parents live next door to the Kings, and HAVING LIVED AT HOME FAR TOO LONG, got to know Pete WELL over the years. Pete was AS down to Earth AND chill as can be: happy, generous, and very thoughtful. Pete always SHARED THE BOUNTY FROM HIS GARDEN WITH our family. HE was there to keep an eye on things when nobody was home, and EVEN lent us water without a thought when our water-main blew. I always knew Pete as the sort of guy who enjoyed his time, his beer, his yard, and his friends and, MOST OF ALL, HIS family. Pete was a humble but very resourceful guy with clever solutions to all the home ownership challenges. I had A LOT of good laughs with Pete, he was f{%#€ hilarious. Pete put up with my parents loud house parties, insane car projects, and wacky shenanigans, but IN THE END he always shared in the good times. Pete loved fireworks, SOMETIMES not in fireworks season, WHICH RESULTED in a neighbour calling the police because of a mistaken belief that gunshots were fired. Hilarious. Pete, you really don’t know how many times you made me LOL. I don’t think I ever heard Pete complain about anything. HE WAS the sort of guy we SHOULD all aspire to be more like. We will miss You, Pete, we will miss you immensely. My thoughts go out to his lovely wife Kim, and sons Rob and Tim. Pete, WE COULDN'T HAVE HAD a better neighbour. We will all miss you so very much.
