We became friends with Peter and Pearl just after they moved to Brampton in the early 70's and spent many happy times with them over the years. We attended Donna's wedding, and Peter and Pearl acted as Proxy Godparents at our older son's Baptism. Unfortunately, as we moved too often, we lost contact with them over the years, but continue to retain happy memories of the times we spent together. May the precious memories you all have bring comfort to you all.

Peter was a very kind, generous and helpful human being. He was a true renaissance man - a gifted artist and a life-long learner with brilliant insights and a sharp sense of humour. A prolific reader and avid golfer, Peter had an infectious zest for life. His autobiography was aptly titled "It Was Worth It". He will be missed but I take great joy knowing that he is now enjoying his just reward.

Peter has been our neighbour for 17 years and he will be missed. He was a good neighbour and we will miss his big smile whenever we visited.
