Sending sincere condolences to you all. I was so saddened to hear Don had passed away. We worked together at Sparwood Detachment and when he returned for my retirement party I was ‘over the moon’. Keep your good memories close to your heart. He would like that.

Our sincerest sympathy to all of the family - Don was part of the RCMP family in Sparwood where we worked together. Both Barb and I enjoyed socializing with him and though we lost touch with him, we had many memories of fun times together.

So sorry to hear of Don's passing. I met Don through his older brother Neil. Neil and I had a common interest in fixing up old cars, specifically Chrysler products. I hung around the Peter's residence quite a bit in those days so got to meet all of the siblings. Although joining the RCMP took us all in different directions, I still have fond memories of the Peter's family. My thoughts and prayers are with Don's family at this time.

I arrived at the Patrol Vessel “GANGES” stationed in Port Alberni in June 1973. I was fresh out of U-Vic with 3 years behind me and prior to that 5 Years of Service with the Force in “D” Div (Dauphin/Lynn Lake/The Pas). I had rejoined with 5 years and in the Fall of that year Don Peters ( who assumed the role of Big Brother ) came on board. We had lots of great Ike’s together - Don with that Big Broad Smile and always ready to laugh at something. One memory is being ashore in Victoria and going to a Asian Buffet. We had a few beer by then and dove into the chicken legs (6 of us) big time. Then we started building log houses out of the left over bones ( on other plates). As we were eating them out of any profit that night we were nicely escorted to the door.
On a trip up to Prince Rupert to exchange Patrol Vessels (Ganges for the Pearkes). Don and CST Wayne GARTON ( still a buddy and lives a couple of blocks away here in Campbell River), were in the Wheelhouse ( it was a tough Winter Passage up Coast). Well Wayne was smoking a cigar and Don told him to put it out - Wayne turned and blew the smoke in Don’s face - the Fight was on !!) In later years Don and CJ stayed with us at out Sproat Lake residence in approx 2004 and we made a motorcycle trip to Tofino for the day. Don on his Yamaha Venture and us on our Kawasaki Concours. It was a great shock when the Sgt. We worked for back in that era phoned to break the news (Al de St. Remy is still a close friend and living at Sproat Lake). CJ — Helen and I were in shock for a few moments - thinking he was still young - although we are all in our mid 70’s. We are going to try and drive to Calgary for the
Get-together on the 4th of Oct . We have friends in Sylvan Lake and will stay with them for a few days. Hope to see you then. Ken & Helen CRAMB 15 Westhaven Way,Campbell River,BC 250-205-4284. firstname.lastname@example.org
