Peter Huitema, 80, of RR1 Sebringville, passed away suddenly on Sunday,

Beloved husband of the late Rose Huitema (Verellen). Cherished partner of
Nancy Cameron. Dear father of Dave Huitema (Linda), Bob Huitema (Roxana), Jeff Huitema
(Kerry) and Rick Huitema (Jamie-Lynn). Loving grandfather of Leticia Bottema

I am saddened to hear of Pete's passing. I knew him through Area 3 Rotary meetings. I enjoyed listening to his stories of the V.O.S.H. Eye Team trips to Central America. Pete will be missed.

Our sympathy to the whole Huitema family. I always enjoyed chatting with Pete over the years at the CU. I admired the work he did with VOSH for so many years. Thinking of you at this sad time. Marian and Steve Van Klooster

So sorry to hear about Peter. I met Peter in Guatemala in 2005 on a trip with Friends of the Orphans Canada. At that time, I was a municipal councilor in the Township of Norwich and also Vice-Chair of the Grand River Conservation Authority. We spent a lot of time during those two weeks talking about agriculture ( I have a farm as well), politics, and the conservation authorities. I remember him sharing stories about everything from his travels in South America to discussing modifying combine heads. A really terrific guy with a great deal of knowledge and insight and an easy going personality. He gave so much of himself. We need more people like Peter!
