I was sorry to read of Peter's passing, and extend my sympathy to everyone in the family. I played in front of Peter a few times, alongside his brotherBob, many decades ago. Althoughwe didn't share many stages in life after those days, we had nice memories of our hockey connection every day, and werebonded by those times forever..

Dear Judy and children, I am so sorry for your loss. I will always remember the best days of my life skating on the dam with the neighborhood kids, including all the Hubbards. And I remember Peter in high school as a kind and calm person whose success in his work and with his family could easily be predicted. Prayers and love to all the family.

I was so sorry to hear of Peter's passing. We had some good times working together. Whether in the classroom, on the fire ground, as a mentor, or during a fire investigation, Peter was a joy to work with. He had a very unique way of treating you as an individual, which made him a gentleman. My thoughts go out to the family, and I'm sure he will be missed by all.

My deepest condolences to Peter's family. Peter was a great goalie. I played hockey with him for many years. He was a nice person. We spent several winters skating and playing hockey on The Lake during our school years. He will be missed. His friends from Stoneham High and beyond

Very sorry to read of Peter's passing. Lost another piece of the Wakefield hockey legacy centered around Crystal Lake when local hockey was very different from today. Rest in Peace.
