It was a privilege to know Peter over the years. His kind manner and timeless humour will be missed by all. He was a good soul and wonderful family man who touched those around him with his authentic love of life. Prayers for Peter and the entire family. May he rest in peace and walk with angels.

Pete was my dad's best friend. They went to London Knights hockey games for a good 25 year together. I saw Pete there for the last time on Dec 2, 2022, it was my birthday. We have known the VanTol family for close to 50 years. Our condolences go out to all of you, Marianne, Jolanda, Richard and Karel. Pete will be missed. :(
