Peter dedicated his whole life to the happiness of his wife and family. He worked hard as a Mechanical Engineer at GWS Tube Forming Solutions for ten years whom he considered family. He was an avid motorcycle rider, enjoyed visiting his woodlot in Quebec, watching hockey and the CFL, and working on his vehicles and bikes. But most of all he was a proud and supportive father to his five children. He was happiest when he could watch his children pursue their dreams and passions.
