Peter grew up on a dairy farm in Yarrow, B.C., and graduated from University of B.C. medical school in 1959. Loved by his patients, he was a devoted family physician for 46 years at Burnaby (B.C.) General Hospital. His greatest joy was spending time with family. Peter enjoyed travelling, including medical mission work, and in retirement, working on his hobby farm in Yarrow. Peter loved Psalm 23 and knew Jesus as his personal shepherd; he always encouraged his family to follow the faith.
