Peter Kenneth Meloche, 1959–2023

It is with great sadness that we announce
the passing of Peter Kenneth Meloche,
 in Ormstown on July 13, 2023, at the age of 64.

Following a valiant battle against lung cancer, he leaves to mourn his wife of 34 years Debbie McClenaghan, and their four sons, Burke, Russell, Austin and Owen whom he loved wholeheartedly, as well as his extended family and friends. 

A freelance self-employed carpenter and a very creative man with the soul of an artist, Peter enjoyed creating unique and specialty designs for his customers.

Larger than life, Peter lived with a free spirit
and had a lively sense of humour,
as those close to him knew;
he w
ill remain imprinted in our hearts forever.

At Pete’s request, there will be no service or celebration of life,
but should you wish to make a donation in his memory, this can be made to
the Canadian Cancer Society or the Women’s Auxiliary of the Barrie Memorial Hospital

    Sending heartfelt condolences to Peters family. I have such fond memories of the many card games we had throughout our high school years. Remembering your kind creative spirit Peter.


    It was so sad to hear about Peter. He had a heart of gold and an amazing personality. He always made us laugh. I remember the days of canoeing and just hanging out together. His smile and laughter was infectious. He was a talented artist. My heart goes out to Debbie and sons I am so sorry for your loss. RIP Pete


    Pete was such a fun and generous guy and it is really difficult to imagine him not in this world. He worked at two of my kids homes (Megan and Tabitha mckell) and mine as well.
    We are all so sorry for the loss of him and give you all our deepest condolences.

    Sad to hear this news. I have nothing but fond memories of Peter from back in the day. A great hockey teammate who always kept us laughing with his sense of humour. And also a talented artist with a creative soul. He’ll be missed, sympathies go out to Debbie and the family. RIP, Pete.


    Debbie and family, our hearts go out to you. Pete was a great neighbour, talented carpenter and always up for a great chat. His creativity seemed endless. Will forever hold the River Road’s trophy for lawn mowing engineering. Hope all the wonderful memories will in time help with the hurts you are feeling now.
