Walter "Peter" John Chatfield


Walter "Peter" John Chatfield

It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Walter "Peter" John Chatfield, age 75, of Springhill, NS. Peter passed away on Tuesday, February 9, 2021 at the Cumberland Regional Health Care Centre.

Born in Springhill, NS, he was a son of the late Claude and Rozie (Quinn) Chatfield.

Peter lived a full life, filled with love and passion for his family, friends, and the trucking industry. He will be remembered for his laughter, a great sense of humor, and his joy. Above all, for Peter, was his love of God from whom he has now received his eternal reward

Psalm 91; 1-7 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. 2 I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust. 3 Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence. 4 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler. 5 Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day; 6 Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday. 7 A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.

Peter will be dearly missed by his daughter Pam (James) Miller, Eagleville, Tenn.; son Jamie Chatfield, Oshawa, ON; their mother Ella Gillis, Lindsay, ON; 6 grandchildren, Michael, Trevor, and Stephanie Ploughman, Aleesha, Tabby, and Cassius Chatfield; brother, Douglas (Daisy) Chatfield, Springhill; sister, Virginia (Kevin) Kelly, Springhill.
