I was most fortunate to meet Peter in 1998. I will remember him with the highest regard. We shared many laughs over the years, and I learned so much from him. In spite of his many health challenges, he remained positive and always saw the humorous side to many of the situations he found himself in. My life is richer from having Peter as a member of my circle of friends. His earthly challenges have ended, and I truly believe he will now have the peace, he so much deserves.

Rhoda Ann, Rob, Scott and family, you have our deepest condolences. I remember Uncle Peter as always a gentle, funny presence, who loved a good joke and enjoyed time with family. He had a wonderful voice for radio! He gave comfort and support to so many in his life, and he set an example with his service to others. I'm sorry we won't be at the service, but know we will be thinking of you all and you are in our prayers.

To Rhoda Ann and Family,
My sympathy to you all at this time of Peter's death. Physical distances always separated us; comically, first the far east in NFLD, then the far west in AB. This in the age before the internet etc. I recall Peter as a very kind man of integrity who had the ability of being Wacutely witty. There are now many joint memories I share with Rhoda Ann about wonderful deceased persons in the broader Malcolm family of whom Peter is now a part. Well done Peter! It's a privilege to have known you.

Dear Malcom Family,
My deepest condolences on the passing of Peter. I worked with Peter for many years and he was my mentor and fountain of wisdom when I joined probation services in 1975. Peter was kind, caring and supportive and his moral compass was always a source of great inspiration and encouragement. I will always remember that laugh and the gleam in his eyes, a privilege to know the manV

I wanted to say a heartfelt "thank you" to everyone who has remembered our Peter (dad) here, on another platform, or at the visitation or funeral service. He was the BEST dad. I can only hope I am half the dad he was. And, he was a wonderful person to all who met and knew him. He is missed. Thank you all.
