My deepest condolences to Sherry & family, Greg Barr & family, Andy Theriault and family. Uncle Pete's love for people was so evident the moment you met him. He always greeted you with a huge smile and warm hug and his jovial, kind loving spirit will always be remembered. Uncle Pete's love for music was another gift that he shared with all. I will never forget him strumming away with my Dad and helping him remember the cords and words to songs that he had forgotten throughout the years. Uncle Pete, you will be forever in my heart. Rest in peace.

I will always remember Pete opening his home to musicians and their wives and girlfriends after hours. He was a good man with a generous heart and a great sense of humor who created the best music. With fond memories of early eighties Toronto

Peter was my Father In-law, a dear valued and closest friend, and an amazing mentor!, He took on the family role in such a way that was natural and was an incredible Father, Husband, Grandfather, In-Law, Uncle. But most of all a source of guidance to friends and all. 37 years of friendship and family, Peter was a guiding light, always looking for the good, always Letting people know that others have goodness in them. He always said, "even if they make mistakes, it doesn't make them a bad person". FULL of life, full of goodness, Peter welcomed everyone with open arms and gave everything he had to life. I will SO miss My great friend / Father In-Law. Peter for all the goodness he exemplified, a guidance he always gave. His giving heart and soul, His ability to see the good in everyone, His family morals, values and insights. Most of all I will miss MY GREATEST FRIEND. God rest his soul, take him into eternal life heaven and bless him for his loving and giving soul, the patient and understanding man he always was, and for the loving of life he gave to everyone he touched. You left and took a little piece of my heart with you Peter, there is an emptiness there and I will miss our visits and talks but you will always be in my thoughts, my heart, and my memories.
