Debbie, & family,

I met Pete when I started dialysis. He was one of the sweetest guys I have ever met. Always had a smile, and was such a genuinely nice guy. I remember leaving dialysis one day and was pretty tired, and Pete, being the eternal sweetheart, offered to have me sit in a wheelchair to take me out front to meet my ride. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
Rest in Peace Pete

Dear Debbie & family

I am very sorry to hear of Pete’s passing. Although I haven’t talked to Pete in years I often thought of him and the laughs that we had. Sadly missed but never forgotten.

Dear Debbie,

So sorry to hear about Pete.. He was always a pleasure to deal with over the many years we knew each other. He will be missed by many of us here at Border Services.

Dear Debbie and family, sincere condolences to you all. I will always remember when you trained me when I started with Air Canada and Peter would come and visit us in the training room. Hold close all the memories and know my prayers are with you at this difficult time.

I’m so sorry, but I know he’s having a grand old time with Jeff and David right now. And I’m sure Don is sitting back watching his boys.

Dear Debbie, Timothy and Sarah,
We were saddened to learn of Peter sudden passing. He was a kind, thoughtful man. Our boys always remembered him fondly from their visits to St. John’s. Peter went out of his way to make sure they each felt at home and enjoyed their time with the family. We will keep everyone in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

Debbie, Timothy, and Sarah:

I was so saddened to hear of the passing of Peter. I remember him well from when Timothy and Sarah were attending Vanier. He was such a lovely man and a great father. I can’t begin to understand the sense of loss you all must be feeling.

My heart felt condolences to your entire family on the loss of your husband and father.

Thinking of you all,

It doesn’t seem real that we’ll no longer be able to see Grampie’s smiling face on Skype each weekend – how we all looked forward to those calls.

Debbie, Tim & Sarah – our hearts are with you during this sad time. Pete was such a loving soul. Reading all of the comments so many people have left about him, it’s easy to see how much he loved life and lived it to the fullest.

We will forever miss him. We’ll hold tight to the happy memories until we meet again.

Rozee Family,
So sorry to hear of Pete’s sudden passing. Stay strong during this very difficult time…God bless…Denis Lush-Air Canada, Halifax

To Debbie and family
Peter’s father Don worked for my father and the day Peter was born dad drove Barb and Don to the Yarmouth Hospital, I remember this as it was such a happy time and he was a very cute baby.
I am sure he will be missed but try to remember the happy times, and the wonderful memories.
Sorry for your loss Debbie

To Debbie and family
So sad to hear about Pete. I am a colleague of Pete’s. Although I have only known Pete for just over 5 years, I learned pretty quickly that he was the master of pranks. I fell victim to a few very quickly on in our relationship! Although I work in Halifax Cargo, he still managed to prank me. I believe your daughter, Sarah was was with him on a trip to Halifax when he got me good! Of course, I vowed to get him back, but I soon found out I was no match for Pete. I’m sure there will be endless stories and wonderful memories to share. You always knew when Pete was around which only means he will be missed that much more. May all the wonderful memories you have keep him in your heart forever.

Dear Debbie and family:
Kathy and I were saddened to hear through my mother and Aunt Mona that Peter had passed away.
I often think of how, when I was last down east, Peter so good naturedly and unasked, sat down and quietly got to work to arrange better seats for us all on the flight back.
I’m sure that simple little act was just one indication of what a thoughtful and kind person he was, and a great husband and father.
You, Tim and Sarah are certainly in our prayers and thoughts.
love, your cousin Mark
