Beloved husband of Margaret (a true lifelong friend) and a devoted and much loved father to his children, Richard, David and Catherine. Precious son of Nora and John, and a truly loved “big brother” to Helen, Richard, Lorna, Francis and Ann. A man very much loved by numerous nephews and nieces, family and friends, both near and far.

The mark that we make on other people’s lives is truly what life is about, and Pete has deeply touched many hearts throughout his lifetime. He was dearly loved, respected and admired. A true ‘Gem’- Keep shining Pete! Our love always, from your devoted family and many friends. A Celebration of Pete’s life will be held on Wednesday the 12th of March, 2008 at 2pm at St. John's Anglican Church Hall, 3295 Cobble Hill Road, Cobble Hill, BC. No flowers please.
