  1. As a fellow Rotarian I will miss Peter’s friendly smile. He and I spoke not that long ago about the E-Club’s global grant project.

    My heartfelt prayers to Peter’s family and our Rotary family.

  2. I always looked forward to meeting Peter at veterinary gatherings and having hearty discussions with him, often in the hospitality room!! My condolences to his friends and family. Peter will truly be missed.

  3. I am so sad to hear that Peter has passed away. I talked to him not long ago and wasn’t aware he wasn’t feeling well. Peter was a mentor to me and I loved him dearly. He taught me so much and I always loved his laugh and friendly kind way.
    He was a really good veterinarian and was very forward in his thinking. I am forever thankful he asked me to come and work with him at Stockyards Vet. His vision lives still today and many of our clients will be sad to know of his passing.
    Hugs to you all. I am so sorry that I am unable to attend his funeral as I am out of the country. I will miss him dearly.

  4. Peter was a real gentleman, truly committed to animal welfare, with a tremendous sense of humour. I learned a great deal from him, and it was an honour to serve with him on the Alberta SPCA Board of Directors.

  5. All at a sudden gone, so hard to imagine.
    His contagious laugh, enthusiastic, self confident and optimistic veterinary approach will be missed.
    Will always remember the hospitality and help when we immigrated.
    We could not attend the funeral due to health issues.
    Our sincere condolences to Roeland, Johan and family.
    Klaas and Annelies Wiersma.
