Since Peter's passing on July 29, 2020, we wanted to honour Peter but were limited in our options by CV-19 Bylaws affecting Public Gatherings.
In discussing this with Peter's family, it was decided to have the Board of Directors represent all PGOSA members and to invite 4 of Peter's oldest friends.
Peter's family came from far and wide to attend his Services.
They included Daughter Kristi Farrell (with husband John and daughters Ava and Elena) Daughter Katrina Nakamura, Pat Kucey and Wayne Buhr
A short Tribute to Peter was held on the morning of Sunday September 6th at the Community Park Shelter area
In trying to find a lasting tribute to Peter and one that captured one of his many interests, the idea of commemorating Peter's love of horseshoes came to mind.
The placing of a Tribute Plaque at the Horseshoe Pits was pursued and a special "PGOSA Tip O' the Hat" to City Councillor and PGOSAn Mr. Al Greir for fast-tracking approval of the idea through the City Council.
It was my honour to place the Tribute Stone with Peter's son-in-law John at the Horseshoe Pits area......which will now be known as "PGOSA Pete's Pits"
There were a few memories shared, a few tears and several laughs at some of the anecdotes that were shared.
We will now have a lasting Tribute to one of our Founding Members at a place that he held dear.....Rest in Peace, "PGOSA Pete."
