Michael GoldbergI met Peter a bit more than a year ago on a golf trip to Orlando. Much can be said for determining the character of someone having played 18 holes with them. Peter was a good golfer and a real, gracious gentleman on the course. To Peter's family, my sincere condolences on your profound and premature loss. To Paul, I am very sorry for your loss and we'll have to raise our glasses next November in honour of Peter. Michael Goldberg

Paul HustonMy sincerest condolences to you and your family Angie. I was saddened to read of Pete’s passing. I will always remember his infectious smile and sense of humour. Whenever our paths crossed we would speak proudly about our families, and then we would enjoy reminiscing about the mischief we got ourselves into growing up in Oakridge, and the adventures we shared working our first jobs at Kmart – where the two of you met. May you, Claudia, Ryan, Corey and Jessica cherish the memories of the times you spent together as a family.

Thanks for the memories Peter. Godspeed.
Dominic, Manie and Vanessa GiulianoTo the Johnston family: words cannot express our deepest condolences. Peter was a great friend and like an older brother to me.

Coletti FamilyDear Angie, Claudia, Ryan, Corey and Jessica xo Frank and I are just devastated to have heard this news. After finally getting in touch with Jess I was hopeful we could attend. We are taking our daughter Jenny back to Queens. I am very sorry we are unable to come. We have not kept in touch in all these years since you left Dorchester but we have such fond memories of Peter. He was full of life and Jess said you all fought hard with him and for him. I am not surprised. Jeff and Sarah both told us and we simply could not believe it. Angie, I have your number from Jess and I will be in touch. There are no words to comfort you in your loss. We are all so very sorry with such heavy hearts. May God hold you up with the strength you fought so hard to keep him here. xo We are thinking of you and will always remember Peter and his amazing energy and smile from Frank, Shelley, Jeff, Sarah, Jenny and AJ Coletti
