Bender, Peter Urs 09.09.44 - 07.03.05
Peacefully at home in Stratford, surrounded by the love of his family, after a courageous battle against cancer.
Author of "Secrets of Power Presentations" and other Business books, Peter was one of Canada's leading Professional Speakers. His charismatic personality delighted and inspired others: Peter had a gift for making people laugh and helping them believe in themselves. His upbeat, positive attitude was genuine as was the courage with which he faced the last big obstacle of his life.
Peter will be sadly missed by many: especially his wife and best friend of 35 years, Frances: Step-sons Phil(Tammy), Greg (Susan) and grandchildren Sarah, Megan, Kyle and Ryan. Brother Kurt (Edith) and nephews Patrick and Eric. In Switzerland Peter is survived by his loving mother Margaretha (86) and other family members.
Sincere thanks to the health care providers, neighbours and friends in Stratford, Toronto and abroad, whose many kindnesses helped Peter and Frances along this difficult journey.
A celebration of Peter's life will be held on March 11th 2005 at the Highland Funeral Home (3280 Sheppard Ave & Warden) Toronto at 1.30 p.m. Visitation one hour prior.
In lieu of flowers a donation to Swan Pack, a charity "Who helps those who can not help themselves", 53 Corcoran Street, Stratford, ON. N5A 1V6 would be much appreciated.
