obits2_0001_Peter NeufeldtPeter missed a lot of school due to rheumatic fever. After completing Grade 8, he worked in his father’s blacksmith shop and his brothers’ manufacturing and plumbing shop. He earned his journeyman plumbing and gas-fitting certificates and started Pete’s Plumbing & Heating, which enabled him to purchase rental properties. Peter rededicated his life to Christ as a young man and served Coaldale MB’s boys’ club and committees. Wanting them to learn a trade, Peter mentored his sons as plumbers and sent them to trade school. After Ella’s death, Edna brought stability to Peter’s life. They enjoyed travelling together. During his illness, she was a comfort. Peter repeatedly said, “I am ready to go.”
