PETER

January 1, 1952- June 12, 2015

Peter passed away peacefully at the Almonte General Hospital at the age of 63.  Predeceased by his parents Clem and Hellins, sisters Catherine and Margaret, and brothers Clem and Tom (Judy) or “TomTom” as Peter called him and with whom he had a special bond that was deep and mutually enriching. Survived by brothers Roydon (Anne), Daniel (Carole), George (Helen) and several loving nieces and nephews.

Peter spent the last 30 years of his life living in Almonte in a group home and attending a Life Skills Day Program.  He was so well loved by the many staff who took such special care of Peter over many years.  Peter was a person who demonstrated so well the truth that “as you put out so shall you receive” for he was always full of love and appreciation for others who, in turn, filled him with enduring love and affection. 

A special memory will forever be with his brothers who witnessed the outpouring of tears and affection from the many who were able to come and say their goodbye to Peter before his passing.  Peter’s family wish to express our sincere gratitude to all of Peter’s dedicated caretakers and to all the hospital staff who cared for Peter in his last days. 

Friends and family are invited to attend The Funeral Mass in Peter’s memory at Holy Name of Mary Church, Almonte on Friday, June 26, 2015 at 12:30 pm. Reception to follow. For those who may choose to honour Peter with a memorial donation, please consider the Mills Community Support Program.
