Peter Reeve

August 2, 1920 - May 30, 2020


Passed peacefully at home on May 30, 2020 at the age of 99 with his
partner Judith at his side.
Born in Winnipeg, Manitoba on August 2, 1920 to George and Edith
Reeve. He is predeceased by his Mom, Dad, four brothers, one sister,
his wife, Mary Elizabeth and eldest daughter, Barbara. Left to celebrate
his life are his partner, Judith, his daughters Patricia (Tom), Janet (Allan),
grandchildren Christine, Peter, Jessica, Steve and Nathan, and many
nieces and nephews.
Peter has a long and interesting life. He was an officer in the Canadian
army during World War II. At one point during the war he acted as the
major of a small Italian town! Peter maintained a sense of discipline
through-out his life – something that the army likely taught him. He had
a basic rule – never more than two martinis! Veterans Affairs was very
helpful in providing assistance that allowed Peter to remain at home
during the last years of his life. Peter had a successful career in the
insurance industry. He was an entrepreneur who loved business and the
stock market. He also had a love of sailing and golf. Peter will probably
best be remembered for his sense of humour and ability to play jokes
on people.
We would like to give special thanks to Dr. Malherbe for his very
attentive care of Peter, his Nephew Brian for his unfailing love, weekly
phone calls and numerous visits, special friends Duncan, Joan, Linda
and Peter who visited regularly and our special private homecare team,
Stephan, Barbara, Brenda, Debbie, Roberta, Marita and Shirley for their
24 hour care assisting Judith especially over the last few months. Peter
lived a good life. He was loved by many and will be greatly missed.

From: Roger Partridge
Relation: I was his Massage Therapist

Sad to here of Peter’s life journey coming to an end. I attended Peter as his Massage Therapist (RMT) for several years and we enjoyed many conversations about life,golf. achy shoulders and Ontario stories, as he lived there for some time on some farmland raising cows and all. He certainly had a quick mind and wit and always had a positive outlook on life. My best to Judith. It was a pleasure to know you both.
