  • Deepest condolences to Ruby, family and all who were part of or passed through the life of Peter. As partners in the Derksen Family Reunion Committee we remember Peter as always being thoughtful and positive. He had a quick smile and a wonderful sense of humour. What a delight to read about his accomplishments in life and the courage he displayed. Peter, you have journeyed the road less travelled with faith, courage and dignity. Farewell cousin, you and your family are in our thoughts and prayers. - Posted by: James Penner & Ina Baas-Penner (cousin) on: Sep 22, 2021

  • Pete and I worked together for 30 years in Manitoba’s Fisheries Branch. Pete was an industrious and reliable worker and always produced excellent results. I took him up to our camp at Child’s Lake where he and I completed the fish survey of Jackfish Lake. We built the ramp up to his front door in the mid-1980s. He was always cheerful and never once complained about anything. He was a joy to work with and I will always have fond memories of him. - Posted by: Walt Lysack (work) on: Sep 16, 2021

  • Leslie and my condolences to Ruby and family. While it has been several years since we last saw Peter and Ruby, the notice of his passing still brought sad news and prompted past pleasant reflections. I got to know Pete when I started working in the Fisheries Deparment in the late 70's. A lot of good friendships with co-workers and fun conversations were developed from those days; from the coffee breaks at the front foyer of 1495 St. James Street, working with Warren and Pete in the back lab, and the occassional out-of-town staff conferences. We affectionately used to call Pete 'Dad' because at the time Ruby and he seemed to be having kids fairly frequently. Everytime we called him 'Dad' I was sure he displayed a proud smirk. I think it was in the late 1980's that Leslie and I bought our first tent trailer from Pete and Ruby. I still remember how much fun we had going to look at the tent trailer somewhere in the country. Kids and us all piling into Pete's van and going to where it was kept to seal the deal. We were able to enjoy camping and make memories with our kids in the camper as much as they had with theirs. Thanks Pete and Ruby. Thinking of Pete will always bring back those fond memories. Again, our thoughts to Ruby and family. - Posted by: Dave Green (Former Manitoba Fisheries co-worker and friend) on: Sep 16, 2021

  • We have known Peter & Ruby for many years & he was just an awsome friendly man. We had many coffee breaks & visits with the family & always had lots of laughs with the kids & Peter & Ruby. We invited him for lots of coffee breaks or should say cake breaks which Peter always appreciated. He was always happy & always smiling so had a great life at the lake. Always happy to see everyone. Our sincere condolences to his family on their loss of a great Dad & Grandpa. Gary & Marge Schmidt - Posted by: Gary & Marge Schmidt (friends around the camp fire at Big Whiteshell) on: Sep 16, 2021

  • Peter was my student at W.C. Miller Collegiate in the late sixties. It is sad when we lose our students, but comforting to know that Peter had achieved a full life with his wife, children and grandchildren. My sincere condolences to his family on their loss of Peter.
