Loving grandfather of Tanya, Ty, Brittany, Peter, John, Angel, Tanya, Miriam, Christopher, Tina, Marci, Scott, Mark, Jason, Christina, Caelan, Ben, Chad, Jennifer, and Peyton and 19 great-grand children. Dear brother and brother-in-law of Leonard Timmermans, John Timmermans, Betsie and John Van Loon, Hubert and Helen Timmermans, Maria Leblanc, and Bernadette Roes. Peter will be missed by many nieces and nephews. Predeceased by Nellie and John Hofsteede, Tonia Timmermans, Gertrude Timmermans, Paul Leblanc, Adrian Roes, Tony Vanderheyden, and John Spruyt. Peter was the owner and operator of the company that carries his family name, which he founded in 1957. It was his goal and his greatest pride in life to provide quality workmanship and strove daily to conduct his business dealings as honestly as was possible in the business world we see today. Over the many years of operating his business, he trained many young men to become excellent electricians, including two sons, a grandson and a son-in-law. His most memorable friend and employee of 17 years was John Nyssen, and was greatly missed by him upon John’s death. One of his greatest joys in life was attending church services and raising his singing voice in praise of his Lord and God.
