Peter formed his parents farm till he joined the army in 1943, at the age of 19. He returned to Sask. in 1945 and worked in the local general store in Fairholme. There he met Irene, where she was teaching at Freemont School. While working at the store he was approached and asked if he would like to work for the Department of Natural Resources (DNR). This was the beginning of a long and glorious career. Peter ended up working for them for 39 years and ended his career as Director of Fisheries for Northern Sask.
Peter had a short hiatus from Fisheries where he tried his hand at commercial fishing and then running the fish plant at Reindeer Lake Co-op Point. He was also supervisor for the “Armstrong Fire” north of Green Lake.
Peter enjoyed curling in the earlier years and golfing was his passion. He continued to golf till he was in his nineties. He loved playing with his grandkids and enjoyed bouncing them on his knee and singing a little ditty.
