Peter Rutherford, aged 69 years, died peacefully at his home in Carleton Place on March 21st, 2023, after a brief illness.
Peter is predeceased by his parents Mervyn and Eleanor Rutherford and his brother-in-law Glenn Stinson. Peter is survived by his brother John Rutherford and his sister Mary Stinson, as well as nephew Spencer (Katherine) and niece Heather (Jonathon), great nephews Lochlan, Barrett and Herschel, and several cousins. Peter will also be sadly missed by his housemates Gwen, Bill, Kelly, Jason and Tom.
Peter resided in Mountain Grove and Sharbot Lake in early adulthood, and worked at ARC Industries in Mountain Grove. For the last 25 years he has lived in Carleton Place and attended Carleton Place and Almonte Life Skills. Peter was an active member of St. James Anglican Church in Carleton Place. He enjoyed long walks in his community and consequently knew many people. He also enjoyed swimming, bowling, darts and comic collecting and was a fan of the Carleton Place Canadians hockey team. The highlight of Peter’s year was his annual vacation at Camp Misquah, a tradition he engaged in for over fifty years.
Peter will be remembered for his love of family, his thoughtfulness and his genuineness.
We would like to extend a special thank you to Community Living Staff at Peter’s home, his Palliative Care Team and all the community members who visited and supported Peter’s end of life journey.
