Rest in peace, Peter Berger. We are blessed to have loved and to have been loved by you; to have you as part of our family for many years. You had a work ethic beyond any, were a true gentleman, a man with a heart of pure gold; a man who valued family and love above all. Thank you for the many memories that you have left for each of us and our now adult children. Most of all, thank you for being an amazing and devouted partner to our mother and grandmother. You were loved wholeheartedly by each of us and will be truly missed. I especially will miss our daily chats. Much Love And Respect!
Peter was part of my life since early childhood. He lived across the garden from us.
Although I moved away from Sunnybrae, whenever I visited my Mom I would pop over and see Peter.
He always had an hour for me to reminisce about mutual family and his travels,hikes and current projects.
My daughter took him cheesecake in July when she celebrated her birthday.
We will miss him, so sorry for your loss.
To the death of Peter I would like to express my heartfelt sympathy. I met peter in 1983 when he visited his brother Hans in Germany. Through edna I have had a lot of contact in recent years. unfortunately achim, my husband and aunt Friedel, the sister of peter, both died in January.3 peoples in one family died in the same month, this is hard to except. I mourn with you.
We always enjoyed visiting with Peter when we came to Salmon Arm to see Edna. He was a kind, sweet man. A real gentleman.
Rest In Peace Peter.
Al and Sue Lozinski
