Peter and I attended school together in Lunenburg, were on the same curling team and enjoyed many happy times together. I have only fond memories of our childhood together. My deepest sympathy to his family. Dave Beck

My sincere condolences to Pete's family. We were together in the Lunenburg Academy for 4 years until 1964. He was a warm and friendly guy to all. I was always amazed at his amazing mental math abilities buy using ( as I recall?) the 13x table. No idea how he did it but it worked! Thanks Peter for some wonderful memories.

The Chenhalls came to Lunenburg when I was a young girl at Academy. I was a classmate of his sister-in- law Carolyn. Peter was an active part of his class with a broad grin. He was taken far too young. Sincere sympathy to those left behind.

We are very sad to hear of Peter's passing. I am writing this on behalf of all our staff here at Scotia Chrysler in Sydney NS, especially Bert Currie who dealt with Peter frequently over the years. Peter was a friend to the Dealership over the years and was very helpful to us when times were tough. Please pass on our sincere condolences to his family. May He Rest in Peace.
