Survived by his wife Audrey, 7 children, 24 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren. “Peter, who was part of the first medical school graduating class at the University of Saskatchewan, practised family medicine in Outlook, Sask., for 9 years before pursuing a residency in neurology at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, from 1967-70. In 1970 he moved his family back to Saskatoon, where he began a long and distinguished practice as a neurologist from 1971 to 2002. During this time he maintained a private practice and saw patients in both St. Paul’s and Royal University hospitals. Peter was highly regarded by his colleagues, and he always greeted his patients with a warm smile and handshake in his office. He also enjoyed serving on the board of the family business, Siemens Transport.”
