  4. Peter we are so sad to hear of your passing and that you wont be there in three weeks to meet us as we had planned with you. Our mothers being sisters were close as we were as cousins. Even though we lived on different continents the tie was never broken, there are many happy memories we share in our family. Rest in Peace God Bless you Peter with love from Dave and Eileen and the family in Australia.

  5. I met Pete when I started driving a school bus for Charterways. We used to have a laugh in the drivers’ room because we used to talk very quickly & use a lot of English phases sometimes even we weren’t sure of what each other was saying – that’s what you get when London meets Yorkshire. He was a good friend when my husband Steve & I lived in Sarnia. He will be sadly missed. God Bless Pete sleep tight xx

  6. Uncle Pete.
    Remembering as a 7 year old the first day we met you back in October 1958 and the last time we shook hands and hugged in July 2010 before our flight back to the UK.

    Love Always.
    Marion & Peter.

  9. I have known Peter for many many years and have not seen him for a long time. When I was much younger I went to Chatham where Peter was teaching auto mechanics. I learned much from Peter about the trade and i eventually became an apprentice and earned my mechanic’s licence. Peter and I touched base once again while I was working at Labombards years later. I will always remember Peter and what he did for me.
    My sincere condolences to his family.
