Peter passed away peacefully at the Westshore Retirement Residence, Port Perry on the 27th of February, 2020, in his 94th year. Peter was predeceased by his loving wife Margaret (2014). He is survived by his sisters Mary and Barbara in England, and predeceased by Joan. He will be sadly missed by his children Jeffrey (the late Mary), Alison (Kurt), grandchildren Laura (Sean), Sarah (Graeme), Jacquie, Phil, and Lydia, and great-granddaughter Abigail.
Born on August 17, 1926 in Consett, England, Peter immigrated with his family to Canada in 1966. Peter was an electrical engineer and worked extensively on control systems for ship mooring winches, huge cranes and latterly high-speed labelling machines. There was nothing he couldn’t improve. Peter caught the motorsport bug early and was a fixture on the Ontario Navigational Rally scene, with many wins to his credit. Along with Margaret, he was a devoted follower of the Canadian National Auto Rally scene and well-known there for his photos.
Cremation has taken place at Peter’s request.
The family would like to thank all those who cared for Peter during this time, especially the staff at Westshore. If desired, donations may be made to Westshore Retirement Residence or the charity of your choice.
