  3. I really feel bad for all that loved and knew Peter. I remember good times with him. Like the time he took me for my first plane ride in a little cessna, I thought I was going to die. We got up to our cruising speed and height and Pete said “well should we shut the plane off and restart it?” I almost pooped my pants. Thank goodness he was only kidding. These memories will always be with me.

    I worked for the last year and a half with Peter at Caltrax. He was an amazing man and touched me deeply with his sense of humour and compassion. He will be deeply missed here at Caltrax.

    I was shocked and saddened to hear that Peter had passed away. Although we are cousins we had not seen him in years. Our parents were very dear friends and I have fond memories of our childhood visits. My sincere sympathy to his family.

    I worked with Peter for two years. As we both grew up in South, Calgary we had many things in common. I fondly called him ‘Fruit Cake’, as he always made me laugh. My sincerest condolences to his Family. I am sure he will be telling his jokes to all those he joins in Heaven. RIP Peter.

  10. Our deepest sympathy to you Brenda and the family. We always had a soft spot in our hearts for Peter. He was funny, unpredicable and imaginative and made everyone feel so welcome. It was great the last years getting to meet and know you. Two of the occasions were at Uncle Harold’s and Aunt Mae’s funerals, sad yet uplifting when we were all together sharing stories. We know Peter loved you very much and you will be experiencing a great loss at this time. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
