Passages: Peter Minaki

Peter Minaki


July 21, 2015
Peter was instrumental in the formation of the Haliburton Highlands Chapter of the Canadian Association of Retired Persons – CARP.  He was a dedicated volunteer who put much time and effort into our shared mission to improve the lives of Canadians as we age and helped to make positive changes for seniors in his community.  Peter put his technical and creative skill to work on behalf of the CARP Chapter in his role as a Director of the Board.
Peter told me of his life before retirement and his work in setting up the infrastructure for Canada’s mobile communication network.  If you’re using your cell phone today, please have a good thought for Peter and recall his contributions to our community.
The staff at the CARP National Office were very sorry to learn that Peter had lost his battle and we send our sincere condolences to his family and friends.
