We (Terry & myself) are so sorry to hear of Peter’s passing…I just spoke to him within the past month and he was so looking forward to the next stage of his life. Keeping his family in my prayers.

From: Margie Johnson
Relation: friend

I recently discovered New Denver/ Silverton and have, for several years, been spending a great part of spring and summer there. I met Peter two summers ago at the New Denver campground. We had many a conversation and coffee together. Peter really lived his life. He loved the area and all it had to offer and spoke so fondly of all who lived there. He expressed how blessed he was to have found this paradise. We went for a beautiful boat ride across Slocan lake and. in spite of the fact he has lived there for some time, he was as overcome with the beauty of the valley as I was. Peter was a gentle soul with a curious mind and a love for what matters. I will miss him.

From: Ian Macpherson
Relation: School friend

Peter its been almost 6 years since you left us and far far too many years since I saw you. I always considered you a friend and am jealous of how you lived the life many of us dream of, but never commit to. We had a good time in lumberjack trainees back in 1972, but you surpassed all that with your BC homesteading. If you can somehow see this, you know your sister and I are friends and that I hope we can some day catch up. Rest in peace..but I hope you are still hiking and paddling.
