From Peter’s obituary | Vancouver Sun | September 2, 2016
Peter held a lifelong fascination with the underwater world and was a consummate aquanaut and wordsmith. He was a freethinker who walked softly through life believing less is more. A loving father and husband, Peter was an insightful man with a curious mind, always a good listener, and possessing a sharp wit which delighted those around him. A dedicated family man, he met the challenges of life and never lost his focus to encourage and openly love his family in the many adventures they sought.
