DEVENISH, Peter Patrick April 15, 1950 - February 1, 2013 After an unwavering fight against renal cancer, Peter passed away peacefully at home with his family by his side on February 1, 2013 at the age of 62. He will continue to walk hand in hand in spirit with his wife, best friend and soul mate of 42 years, Ellen. Pop's mentorship, unconditional support and love will never be forgotten by his daughters, Christine, April and Shannon. His sons-in-laws, Ramon, Mike and Mike will miss his encouragement, advice and friendship. Peter will always remain a special Pop-Pop to his five grandsons, JP, Matthew, Joshua, Jeremy and Luke. His leadership and sense of humour will be sadly missed by his siblings Carolyn (Richard) of Manitoba, Susan (Rob) of Minnesota, Ed of Kanata and Patrick (Vickie) of Nova Scotia along with his brother-in-law Ken (Pauline) of Burlington and sisters-in-law, Susan and Barb of Toronto. Family and friends will remember and miss his strong sense of values, freely offered advice and great sense of humour. He is now reunited in Heaven with his parents, Betty and Ed Devenish, of Oakville/Burlington and his mother-in-law and father-in-law, Jane and Bill Edwards. We thank all of the neighbours, physicians and nurses who were so supportive of Peter and the family throughout his journey and for giving us the precious gift of time. A celebration of Peter's life will be held at 1 o'clock p.m. on Saturday, April 27, 2013 at Adams Funeral Home 445 St. Vincent St., Barrie with visitation one hour prior. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Simcoe Muskoka Regional Cancer Centre, Gilda's Club of Simcoe County and the Sunnybrook Foundation. Messages of condolence may be forwarded to the family through www.adamsfuneralhome.ca. "If love could have saved you, you never would have died." =
