I am deeply saddened to discover Peter's passing. He was a true friend to all his classmates in high school at Ascension Collegiate from 1970 to 1973. I will remember many of his chess wins against other club members. I will always remember his advice in many mathematical and science problems. Peter will be fondly missed. Thank you. Randy Dawe

To Peter's family, I am so sorry to hear of his passing. I was talking to Mom and Dad a few days ago and heard the sad news. Besides my Spaniards Bay connection, I also worked with Peter for many years at Newtel/Xwave and he was a wealth of information on many topics and never hesitated to help out the new folks on the team. I remember years ago just after starting with Newtel that Dad and I spoke about how Peter was an exceptional student in high school when Dad taught him and this carried over to his work. I offer my deepest condolences to Debbie and the Gushue family.
