Peter was an eternal optimist with many creative interests in life. He was always busy and there was never enough time to pursue all his passions. He was a talented wooden boat builder and fine furniture maker.

Peter emigrated to Canada from England after finishing a 7 year apprenticeship for graphic design and became renowned for his skills in graphic arts as part owner of Design Associates.

He was also an avid sailor for 50 years, and enjoyed racing on Lake Huron, but his happiest times were sailing with family and friends in the North Channel.
