"May 7 is my Dad's day. Hard to believe he was born 92 years ago...and left us 3 1/2 years ago. His wit and wisdom are remembered and missed every single day. Trips to Home Depot without him are not nearly as much fun as they were when he came along...."

"Dad would have been 90 years old today! Always thinking about and remembering him, especially during hockey playoffs and baseball season. Can't see a bag of cheetos, a macadamia nut or a hammer without thinking of him. Always missing his presence, his wit and his wisdom..."

"My Uncle Peter was a great man, and a perfect gentleman.He cared about everyone and was fun to be around. I always admired him , I remember him even as a very little girl, when we all lived in Trail B.C.We always had fun, no matter what we did.Playing in the icy cold water in the mountains, or just sitting around singing old songs. I will really miss him, and loved him dearly."

"I remember it seemed as if your dad was always in the garage when I came over, and he would come out to say hello to me. He was always there, and I thought that was so great. And he was at your house the last time I visited you and I saw the gorgeous back yard that you worked on together. So sorry I missed his celebration- thinking of you all"

"We loved Peter’s his sense of humor; & watching those beautiful blue eyes “sizing up” everything, & everyone, around him.  They aptly refer to his as the “greatest generation”-those that fought for everything our Country holds dear, & lived their lives true to the Golden Rule.  Peter was one of the greatest of the greatest.  We are sincerely grateful for the time we got to share with him."

This tribute was added by Linda Walker on 20th January 2013

"Our family have beautiful memories of Uncle Pete. We were always welcomed into your home. When we arrived, if Uncle Pete wasn't in the house we, knew exactly where he was. We could find him in the garage, on his stool, nursing a beer while he cracked macadamia nuts with the bench vise. Hold your memories close to your heart. Our love to your family from ours."

"To the best father-in-law a gal could ever have.  I have trouble trying to summarize, in words, all you have meant to me over the years, Peter.  And those who know you well, understand why I would say this.  You were always so understanding of things-of everything-and could accept things with such good grace and humor.  And wisdom too.  We miss you and love you Grandpa!"

"I have so many memories with Grandpa...taking me to my first hockey game to see Gretzky, making me corndogs in the kitchen for lunch, visiting me in Memphis when my parents were out of town and teaching me the "man's way" to shake hands, and of course never saying goodbye without the phrase "if you can't be good be careful...and if you can't be careful at least remember the date""

Thank you for teaching us to play cribbage, always having soda and candy on hand, making the best orange juice in California, taking me to baseball games, and for pushing me in the tree swing. Most of all I remember the twinkle in your bright blue eyes. We love you! Andrea, Ty, and Kai"

"I still remember all the great times at the Lemen house with Peter and Helen, especially Christmas visits. And Peter was always so helpful around Judy and Bob's house. It was nice to reconnect with both Peter and Helen at Dr. Clark's office while I was working there. He will be missed. Hello to the family from Gary, Robin, Kelsey and Hannah Frazier."
