We are deeply saddened by the loss of Peter, who passed away on Wednesday July 21st. He will be greatly missed by his wife Susan of 21 years, his children Kimberly (James) and Patrick (Claire), his grandsons Lukas, Joshua, Thomas and Oliver and his sister Mary Jane.
Peter spent his working career as a high school teacher and coach with the Peel District School Board. After retirement he moved to Sydenham where he joined the South Frontenac Fire and Rescue Station 5 as a volunteer firefighter. Peter had a deep love for animals, he and Susan shared their life with many dogs and will be missed by their latest puppy Finnigan. He will be fondly remembered by family, friends, colleagues and neighbours for his smile, contagious laugh, sense of humour, ability to fix or build just about anything and his love and passion for the outdoors and fishing.
The family would like to extend their sincere thanks to the staff at both Kingston General Hospital and Ottawa General Campus Hospital for their care, compassion, and support.
In keeping with Peter’s wishes, cremation has already taken place.The family will be holding a private Celebration of Life.
In honour of Peter’s courageous battle with Leukemia, donations in any form, can be made to the Canadian Blood Services.
