Peter was one and a half when the family immigrated to Canada in 1926, settling in Leamington, Ont. They lived through the Depression, sharecropping and moving from farm to farm. In 1941, the family moved to Kitchener, Ont., where work was available. With his discharge from the Medical Corps in 1945, Peter was able to train for the electrical trade. Peter served in the Kitchener MB Church choir for more than 50 years and then in the Jubilation Male Choir during his retirement. At choir practices, Peter noticed the pianist, Lillian. They were married and raised 3 children. Peter worked as an electrician for 20 years before establishing his own electrical contracting business in 1967. He was in business for 25 years, cultivating long-lasting friendships with his employees and business associates. Peter’s legacy is one of integrity and generosity. For his family, he was a source of ongoing support and blessing. His quiet and steady faith and faithful prayer support shaped the lives of his children and grandchildren.
