Peter was born in Orangeville, Ontario. He was a teacher with the Halton Catholic School Board and Waterloo District Catholic School Board, especially enjoying his time working with grade 8 students in the Mount Mary Retreat Program. He wholeheartedly enjoyed engagement in the Rockway Mennonite Church community and was actively involved working with the newcomer families sponsored by the church.
Peter loved supporting his family and had a heart for helping people and anticipating the needs of others. He enjoyed sharing his appreciation of music, designed building projects for loved ones, participated on recreational sport’s teams including hockey, golf, curling. It was with the curling and golf teams at the church that he found his deepest friendships — the ‘Rockway guys’.
Peter was a man of faith, a traveller, a backroad adventurer, a dog lover, a crossword and jigsaw puzzler and willing participant in family activities. He is deeply cherished by those who love him.
