Great Uncle of Hannah, Miles, Nathaniel, Gwen, Kyla and Emma. Pete was born in Hillegom, The Netherlands and was 11 years old when his family immigrated to Canada. They settled in the London area with the dream of building a business. Pete's destiny was to work in the greenhouse. From a very young age, he loved to accompany his father to the greenhouses where he worked. So while his parents worked elsewhere to provide a steady income, Pete was instrumental in the growth of the family business from its inception. Eventually he took over the business from his parents and has steadily and successfully built it to what it is today. Through the years he employed many family members and students and taught them an admirable work ethic. He worked right along with his staff and found it very difficult when he became ill and could no longer work. Pete was an admired Boy Scout Leader and a founding member of the London and District Florists Association. Special thanks to Dr. KERR, Dr. PERERA and Mary Liz. Your compassion for and care of Pete during his four years of treatment greatly helped ease his journey. Also thank you to the special women (ie Nurses) of Victorial Hospital who helped him through his final week. Pete touched the lives of all who knew him! He will be sadly missed and fondly remembered. Cremation has taken place. Memorial visitation will be held in the Westview Funeral Chapel, 709 Wonderland Road North (2 blocks north of Oxford) on Thursday from 6: 00-9:00 p.m. as well as one hour prior to the memorial service.

BERENCSI, Susan
Tear Drops
Its now 3 years
Since I lost you.
The tear drops flow
When I'm at your graveside
At home or on the road.
The beautiful times we had together
Your smile, laughter, voice
Hugs, kisses
Are mine forever.
They say that I
Shouldnt hold you back
You have to help look after Gods seniors and children
I prayed not long ago
To the heavens
That you are free to go
To do what you liked best.
Someday it will be my turn
To leave this earth
And, with Gods help
We will meet again.
Love, husband Andy

Shocked students remember good friend killled in snowmobile crash
‘It's hard to put into words just how to deal with this'
By Monique BEECH, Wednesday, March 02, 2005
When Jonathan MARSHALL died, he shattered the heart of a school community.
To students at Orillia District Collegiate and Vocational Institute he was ‘Marshy, ' a 16-year-old lovable teddy bear of a guy who made everyone around him laugh. He was a stocky, shaggy-haired teen who excelled at football, rugby and hockey, but also felt at home singing with the not-quite-as-cool school choir.
A snowmobile crash took No. 48 from his Blues teammates last weekend. Wearing only a T-shirt, jeans, and without a helmet, Jonathan's snowmobile struck a parked car on Line 7 in Oro-Medonte Township, near Moonstone, at about 10: 30 p.m. He died overnight in Royal Victoria Hospital in Barrie.
It's been an especially sharp blow for Orillia District Collegiate & Vocational Institute's 970 students and its staff. Jon's dad, Robert, is a math teacher there. His younger sister, Jocelyn, a Grade 9 student.
“It's devastating,” said Blues' head football coach Tyler KUDAR. Robert's a co-coach of the team.
“I feel for him and his family. It's hard to put into words just how to deal with this.&rdquo
Since the school bell rang Monday morning, students and staff have gathered to mourn and remember the Grade 11 student. Three candles illuminate a memorial table set up in the school's foyer. Bristol boards are plastered with pictures and loving notes.
“I'll never forget your awesome huge hugs,” writes one student.
“Jon, You will always be an inspiration to me both on and off the field,” writes another.
It was football that drove Jonathan, said Friends Jayson MILLER, 17, and Mackenzie MICKS, 16. A linebacker and leader, the powerhouse player who weighed more than 200 pounds and stood over six feet would rev up his teammates with spirited speeches before a game.
“Keeping our heads in it, pretty much,” said MILLER, a teammate.
“Tellin' us to get pumped up and go out there and win.&rdquo
Shelby GUTHRIE, school president and friend, remembers his winning smile and way of reducing anyone to fits of laughter. He would often break into a rendition of The Gambler by Kenny Rogers or do the Crip walk, a stutter-step, gangster-style dance popular with teens.
“It was his thing,” said Guthrie, 17, chuckling at the memory.
His thing was also riding snowmobiles. His Friends say Jonathan, who lived just outside Orillia on Carlyon Line, was an experienced sledder.
They're not sure what may have led to last weekend's accident.
But he wasn't a gambler, said MICKS. “He just lived life to the fullest,” he said.
To help students and staff deal with their grief, seven crisis response team counsellors were called in Monday, said principal Lori BERESFORD.
“It's a very difficult situation but one you have to rise to and use the people that you got, much like a family in many ways,&rdquo said BERESFORD. “You're using that family to support each other. And I think that's what I saw (Monday) is everybody coming together, staff and students, to support each other.&rdquo
Moving on is going to be tough.
“If he were here right now he'd be like ‘Come on guys, cheer up,'” said Guthrie. “Without him here it's hard to have the will to just do that.&rdquo
It's been an equally tough lesson about the frailty of life for these teens.
“It's good to be nice to everybody and not take everything for granted,” said MILLER. “Go out there and have fun, but there's times not to be stupid. I think that's clicked into a lot of people's heads.&rdquo
Barrie Ontario Provincial Police say Jonathan was at a friend's house before the accident. Police at the scene tried to determine how fast the sled was going at the time. A call to a police spokesperson was not returned yesterday.
A celebration of Jonathan's life is being held today at 11 a.m. at the Royal Canadian Legion Hall in Coldwater.
