Peter Rowe passed away peacefully at Orillia Soldiers Memorial Hospital after a short, courageous battle with cancer in his 87th year on Thursday, May 7, 2020. Beloved husband to Christine Rowe for 65 years. Dear father to Michael (Lynn), Cary (Eugene) Duffy, Kathleen Dylan and Dustin Farr. Great grandfather to Alyric, Zane, Jasper and Carter Rowe and Jaxon Tillotson. Predeceased by his mother Maude Rowe.
Peter Started his career as a young technician who knew more about sound and technical things than are found in many text books. He bicycled from church to church on Sunday mornings broadcasting the services for the local radio station, CFOR. Peter was taken on as an assistant by the station's chief engineer George Slinn and when George moved on, Peter took over the job. He was a master fix-it guy who repaired radios and TV sets and could do anything technical or electrical that people asked of him. His family, many friends and neighbors and especially his admirers in the broadcasting industry will miss him very much.
