This memorial website was created in memory of our darling loved one,
Peter McKenna, 76, born on February 14, 1940 and passed away on April 26, 2016

Pete was the husband of Ann. He is also the much loved daddy to Karen, Pauline, Stephen and Ann.  Grandpa to Jayne, Michelle, Katie , Mark, Ryan, Emma, Laura  Ainslie, Keira, Jennifer, Jonathan and Josh 
Great Grandpa to Connor, David, Chloe, Jamie, Kyle and Josh.  Great Great Grandpa to Aaron.

He was brother to John, James, Eddie, Kathleen and Patricia.

He was uncle to countless nephews and nieces.   And of course friend to so many.

Dad was one of the most compassionate men I ever knew.  He treated everyone from all walks of life with the same respect. He did not look down on anyone.   He often told us, the only time you look down on someone is when you are helping them back up. He helped many a poor soul who was down on their luck due to addiction.  He had a very loving and kind heart.

He loved kids and they loved him. He was the teller of tall tales and had kids staring in awe about his rainbow factory and belly buttons made from jelly tots.

He would sing to them. One of the songs he sung a lot was I can sing a Rainbow.

He had an amazing sense of humour and loved The Effin Bee.

He wrote short stories, many about his own life.  He wrote songs and hymns.
Dad had a deep faith in God. 

Most of all dad loved us all. We were never left in any doubt about that.

Our hearts are aching but we know he is there for us all.  Love never dies.
Love binds us together forever.  

Till we meet again we will see you in the sky, the stars and of course the rainbows you send to us.

You are loved forever dad xxx 

In Loving Memory of our daddy

Dad After the surprise 70th birthday party you sent all 4 of us this song. In This Life For all I've been blessed with in my life There was an emptiness in me I was imprisoned by the power of gold With one kind touch you sent me free let the world stop turning Let the sun stop burning Let them tell me love is not worth goin' through If it all falls apart I will no deep in my heart The only dream that mattered had come true In this life I was loved by you for every mountain I have climbed Every raging river crossed You were the treasure that I longed to find Without your love I would be lost let the world stop turning Let the sun stop burning Let them tell me love is not worth goin' through If it falls apart I will know deep in my heart The only dream that mattered had come true In…
