A leaf released from the arms of a tree,
To glide through the air, now totally free.
A journey to make – a good-bye to us all
A beautiful brilliance, we will always recall.
Peter passed away quietly in his 71st year, on Wednesday, July 17, 2013, at his home in Port Perry, with his family at his side. He will be sorely missed by his spouse Beverley Anne (nee Gibson), partner in life for over 50 years. Loving father of Julia Vanderheul of Toronto and Boyd Vanderheul and his wife Chikako of Japan. He was the cherished Opa to his two grandsons, Ren and Kaz. Peter will also be fondly missed by his sister Dianne and her husband Murray Carnaghan. He was predeceased by his sister Aenne. Peter was passionate about volunteering, travel and most of all using his conservation and forestry management skills within the family wood lot and beyond. He was a dedicated and respected colleague in his fields of work, most notably serving with Ontario Hydro for nearly 32 years.
