After graduation from Kincardine District High School, Peter was employed in the financial world with Trans Canada Trust and went on to banking in Toronto for many years. Peter then returned to Kincardine and started a furniture store and purchased Penny’s Laundromat. He was a “do something new” kind of guy. Throughout his life, Peter enjoyed sailing, travelling and biking.

Special thanks to all the staff of Maitland Manor for their exceptional care for Peter during the past few years. Memorial donations to Maitland Manor Residents’ Council would be appreciated as expressions of sympathy.
