Pete Dimmer, 65, left us on Tuesday, June 12th, 2012, surrounded by his family.

Pete was more than an amazing dad, and husband. He was an amazing person. His influence throughout the community is one that he never advertised, but one that was undoubtedly recognized.

Pete was known for his love for his community and his love for his work at Mercy Hospital. And he enjoyed volunteering his time.

He was also known for his sincere compassion in meeting and for truly knowing people at work, socially and at 'the beach' at Ipperwash, where he was often referred to as "The Mayor."

Pete loved to tinker and was always on the lookout for something that needed to be fixed. Whether at 'the beach' or at home, he was always willing to lend a hand.

And he never traveled anywhere without running into someone he knew. From the States to abroad, it was inevitable his social 'circle' would coincide with his journeys.

His favorite pastimes included hunting, fishing and spending time with his family, friends and pups, Ben & Gus.

Pete is survived by his wife Stacey Wilde Dimmer (Potthoff), son and daughter-in-law Matt and Jessica Dimmer, and daughter and son-in-law and Megan Dimmer and Chris Rocz and their son, his grandson, John.
