With immeasurable gratitude for a life well lived, we said good-bye on March 17 to our beloved husband Peter / Dad / Papa, age 94.

The Rev Peter leaves to cherish his memory his wife Margaret, sons Jeff (Erin), Philip (Sandra) and Doug (Niki); and grandchildren Conal, Calla, Isaac, Cameron, Julia, Adriana and Oliver, and numerous extended family.

Peter’s Presbyterian Church in Canada congregations were in Estevan, SK, Sault Marie and Terrace Bay, ON, and Edmonton, AB. He was a favorite ESL teacher at Alberta Vocational College (Norquest), Edmonton.

Time in the great outdoors was Peter’s delight. To honour him, take a friend to visit the beauty and quietness of a Nature Conservancy Canada property near you (

A private ceremony will be held for immediate family only.

  1. Heartfelt condolences to you Margaret.

  2. Aunt Margaret and family, we send our love
    and condolences at this time. He was such a
    kind and gentle man. Thinking of you all. Hugs

  3. We have wonderful memories of Peter’s support and help for two fledgling ministers. With much love to you, Margaret.

  4. Dear Marg,
    My deepest sympathy to you and your family at this sad time. Take care.

  5. Margaret and family.
    Saddened to learn of Peter’s recent passing and your loss. You were both an important part of my family’s life and we always looked forward to renewing our
    friendship whenever the opportunity presented itself.
    You are in my thoughts and prayers.

  6. We will miss you but remembering all the good times!


  7. Dear Margaret and family,
    I am so sorry to hear of Peter’s passing. I know he will be greatly missed. He was such a wonderful friend and minister to our family. I remember fondly Peter taking “us” Gray kids out to the front yard to play baseball while you were busy nursing one of the boys in the old farm house kitchen. Both of you were so kind and generous with your time helping us on the farm and our many musical recitals. Mom and Dad admired Peter and you and treasured your friendship. Thinking now that Estevan and Stoughton was Peter’s first posting, his early impact on our family was clearly a sign of his great gifts as a friend and minister. I hope to see you soon, Margaret. Take good care,

  8. Dear Margaret, Jeff, Philip, Doug and family
    We are saddened by the loss of Peter and send all our condolences.
    I have nothing but fond memories of Peter, a humorous, affable and amiable uncle who along with Margaret and boys, could be counted on to come and visit our family even when we lived at great distances.
    In particular, I loved it when Peter doled out “airplane rides” and too much ice cream. He became my cheerleader one summer when I had taken up the pursuit of climbing the doorway casements (my mother did not approve); indeed as an adult he would remind me of this when we visited and he would laugh in that wheezing chuckle that I will always remember.
    Laura, Bob and family

  9. Dear Margaret and family,
    We just learned of Peter’s passing today. Our deepest sympathy to all of you.
    Ken especially has wonderful warm childhood memories of the close friendship that formed amongst the four McKague “boys.” They had some great adventures together in those days.
    Ken and I often share memories of our visits together with you in both Alberta and Ontario. I especially recall our visit shortly after Jeff’s twins were born, and our last gathering in Kincardine.
    You all will have a difficult time adjusting to the loss of someone dear who was so central in your lives.
    With sincere condolences,
    Ken and Audrey McKague
