It is with heavy hearts that we, the family, announce the sudden passing of our wonderful husband, father and son, Peter Edward Winters, on Saturday, Nov. 17, 2012, at Glace Bay Hospital.
Born in Halifax, he was a son of Joseph Winters and Jeanna (Baggs) Winters of Glace Bay.
In 2000, Peter graduated from NSCC Marconi Campus, having completed the LPN program and accepted a position at Taigh Na Mara in Glace Bay. He was extremely dedicated to his job and worked hard to make sure his patients had the best level of care he could offer.
Peter had a passion for music. A self-taught musician, excelling at both the electric and acoustic guitars, he thoroughly enjoyed all types of music. Peter was also a gifted artist, putting his energy into painting, drawing and carving. He was fascinated by astrology, space, about unknown universes and past worlds and organizations such as the Egyptians.
But Peter's real love and dedication was to his family, especially his daughter Mackenzie and his wife Ann. His love for them was deep-rooted, strong and unwavering. Peter loved all children and took joy in entertaining Mackenzie and her friends when they were visiting.
Surviving, besides his parents, is his loving wife, the former Ann Taylor; daughter Mackenzie; numerous aunts; uncles and cousins.
Peter was predeceased by brother, Terry Winters.
