As a family we want to thank all those who helped in so many different ways.
A celebration of Peter’s life will be held at the Eagle’s Hall on Friday, February 6, 2015 at 6:00pm with a social to follow. The service will be conducted by family and friends. It will be a time to mourn, share memories, see old friends, heal ourselves, sing and celebrate the life of a wonderful man.
In spite of the weather, Peter was most comfortable in a t-shirt and shorts. Friends are invited to wear their favourite clothes, CASUAL or DRESS.
His legacy is the inspiration he gave us, and the changes he brought about in the lives of those who loved him. Instead of sending flowers, we ask that you take a friend to lunch or dinner and tell him or her the things we often think of only after someone is gone.
