Peter Rudolf Grosse

May 3rd, 1931 – May 19th, 2020

Suddenly at the Pembroke Regional Hospital surrounded by his beloved family, Peter went to be with his Lord and Saviour on Tuesday May 19th, 2020 in his 90th year.

Peter is survived by his wife Regina Maria, his daughter Tanya (Ben), 2 grandchildren, his brother Hans (Helen) and family. Loved and cherished by daughters Ursula (Klaus), Christel (Karlheinz), both in Germany, Annegret (Cameron), Susanne (Sapphira), by great granddaughter Rudy and Tracey. Predeceased by previous wives Adelheid and Christel, by parents Hermann Rudolph and Meta Ella Grosse (nee Richter), and by younger brother Klaus.

Peter was born in the beautiful historic Dresden, Germany. As a young man, Peter immigrated to Canada in 1956 and made his home in Toronto for many years. He then moved to Trout Lake in Barry’s Bay, where he spent many happy times enjoying nature and hobbies. His favourite hobby was trains and displaying them elaborately. Peter was an exceptional gifted artist and created beautiful landscapes, as well as a porcelain painter originally working for the Rosenthal Company of Germany. He was civic minded, always giving back to his community with charitable donations and extensive volunteer work for the Cancer Society. Music was the universal language for Peter. He had a rich baritone voice and loved to sing in the church choir. An excellent square dancer for many years, he just loved life and lived it with zest and exuberance. Peter will be remembered for his strong faith in the Lord, his compassion and kindness and the testimony of his faith.

There was a private service for Peter in the Chapel of the Neville Funeral Home, Pembroke, ON, on Friday, May 29th, 2020.
