I was so saddened to hear of Peters passing. My sincerest sympathy to you all as you remember a wonderful husband and father.
Sheila, we met at the Y in Stratford and we shared the common thread of being a caregiver.
My heart goes out to you and your family.

As a work or sailing mate Pete was the best... just getting to really know you and you are gone. Fair wind to you sir.

My deepest sympathy goes out to Peter's family and friends. I had the good fortune to see a number of his performances in Stratford and Toronto. He was an amazingly versatile actor and could always be relied on to give a great performance - I'm hard-pressed to chose my favourite among them - the title role in "Timon of Athens", George in "Whose Afraid of Virginia Wolff?" stand out, but if I was forced to chose only one, it would probably be his glorious performance as...

Our deepest sympathy to you and your girls at this sad time. We know your happy and cherished memories of Peter will sustain all of you as you go on in years to come.

We were priviledged to have had Peter and his family for neighbours in Midland.
Our memories of what a kind, nice and
talented person Peter was. He was a
fine flute player as well. We kept track of his theatrical career and enjoyed watching his performances. Our
condolences go out to his family.

Our sincere sympathy goes out to Peters family.

Sincere condolences to Sheila and the family.

Our thoughts are with you at this time of great loss.

We enjoyed so many of Peter's performances on stage and screen and were excited when we were able to visit with you and the family in PEI and share some dinners in Stratford.

It was with great pride that Peter talked about Mackenzie and Drew when we were able to get together.

Dear Sheila and Girls, We had the very great pleasure of meeting both you and Peter as neighbours at Christie Beach. I loved to see both of you walking on the beach, sometimes with Bob. Peter was a very humble man regarding his tremendous talents and we enjoyed seeing him at Stratford as well as sharing a glass of wine at the fire pit at the beach. He showed much empathy to me when my own brother, Peter ,died a few years ago and I shall always remember that kindness. Our love and sympathy...

So sorry to hear of Peters passing. I have many wonderful memories of growing up with him and being such great friends. I have always kept those memories close to my heart. Luanne Lattimore (Thomas)
