one night at the swan, pete and i were talking about getting older and feeling that devil reality closing in. i was trying to rationalize it all when pete leaned in and said, "you know i died once.'' that stopped me right in my pontifications, and i asked him what he meant. he told me that during his most recent medical event he had died and found himself in a place where he felt so at peace and full of spiritual benevolence, he was almost disappointed when he was brought back and realized his time had not come yet. he said, "pete, since then, the thought of death has never frightened me or made me doubt the existence of something else...something after."
i believe for the rest of pete's wonderful life he was informed by this experience and was determined to make real his musical dreams and to use his long time experience in the music business to help others he had recently met, and some old friends, with theirs.
pete became a wonderful songwriter and performer and a fearless promoter of other people and events in the toronto music world. i never saw pete angry or perturbed during any of these endeavours, on the contrary, i believe pete had seen what was next for him and been given precious time to make his earthly musical dreams come true.
i was always happy to see pete at the swan and enjoyed whenever we had time for a talk and drink. what a gracious man he was, smart, talented and a pleasure to be around.
dear pete, you have left a hole in the hearts of all who knew you, but i'm sure you are in that lovely place you once envisioned, at peace and one with it all forever. fair well my friend.

I will miss Pete always - R.I.P. my friend. xx

I met Pete in 2008 during Winterfolk while taking photos of the event. Pete was inspired by my photography and often encouraged me to keep going with it, and in doing such by giving me the opportunity to film, and take photos of various events he would host.
Pete was talented musician. A kind, gentle soul who touched many and dearly loved. I will miss him dearly.
My condolences to his family and friends.
