On March 5, 1977 and April 26, 1991 respectively, he welcomed his two children, Melanie and Mathew, who were the most important part of his life. Peter was a devoted father and outdoor enthusiast.

Tim Hortons stock is likely to take a slight dip in the next few days as he was a regular at many local stores where they knew his order before he even got to the counter. He loved the outdoors and nature in general. Peter had a particular fascination with eagles and made the trek many years down to the Eagle Watch in The Valley to see them in person. He will be deeply missed by his friends, family, and all who knew him. A small service is scheduled for 2:00 p.m. on May 6th at the Dartmouth Funeral Home, 29 Queen St in Dartmouth.
