I extend my heartfelt sympathies to all of Pierres family and friends. My family and I knew Pierre as Pete. My Dad Jack, my Mom Joan, my sister Ann and myself,
John Moore, regarded Pete with great affection. When Pete was living on Rainham Road, every week my parents would say “Let’s go up and see Pete and see what new items he has in.” Sometimes my Mom would pick up something decorative or my Dad would find something useful to help with repairs on the cottage. Often my Dad didn’t need anything in particular but he went anyway. He just wanted to go and talk with Pete. My mom would often come to the cottage by herself. One summer she decided a bike would be very useful to ride up to the store at Rainham Centre. She made a sign on a piece of plywood and put it out beside lakeshore Road. BIKE WANTED. I don’t believe that sign was up for even two days when Pete stopped at our cottage and presented my Mom with a bike that he had found. He did this simply because he saw that she needed one.
In later years after my parents passed away I continued the family tradition by going up to see Pete pretty much every week. I didn’t need anything in particular I just wanted to see Pete. To sit and chat. To listen to his humorous take on life. He had a truly amazing sense of humour. I must not forget to add that Pete always treated my parents, my sister Ann and myself with incredible warmth. He was one of the most unique, warmest and kind people I have ever met. I feel blessed to have known him and I will miss him greatly.
