Peter Reuvekamp

Passed away suddenly at his home on Sunday April 10th at the age of 78 years. Immigrated to Canada from Holland in 1948 along with his parents and many brothers and sisters. Peter enjoyed life immensely, and amongst his many passions were scuba diving, MOPAR muscle car restoration, country and bluegrass music, NASCAR races, and reading his beloved Louis L’Amour western novels. Peter worked hard for over 25 years at KWH Pipe. He will be greatly missed by his wife of more than 50 years Penny, his sons Gregory (Kim) and Joseph (Pam), and Reagan and Miles, his grandchildren who called him “Poppa”. He will be missed by his living siblings Nell (John), Francis (Kees), Anne (Tony), Dora (Paul) and Jack (Annette). Peter was predeceased by his brothers Gerald (Jenny), Walter (Agatha), Frank (Bernice), Hugo (Margaret) and his sister Granda. Thank you to all who have cared for Dad and mourned his passing. Cremation has taken place, and a Celebration of Life will be planned for some time later this spring, details to follow.

 

Sunset and evening star,
And one clear call for me!
And may there be no moaning of the bar,
When I put out to sea,

But such a tide as moving seems asleep,
Too full for sound and foam,
When that which drew from out the boundless deep
Turns again home.

Twilight and evening bell,
And after that the dark!
And may there be no sadness of farewell,
When I embark;

For though from out our bourne of Time and Place
The flood may bear me far,
I hope to see my Pilot face to face
When I have crost the bar. 

 

Alfred Lord Tennyson

Community-focused and locally-inspired
Mitchell Funeral Home is committed to Huntsville Families

Few Muskoka businesses are as entrenched in the community as Mitchell Funeral Home. Ould Funeral Home was first established in the early 1900s, with Larry Mitchell’s family taking over in the 1930s. Larry is proud of this tradition and the fact that theirs is the only funeral home in Muskoka, from Sundridge down to Orillia, that is still family-owned and operated. “I think that’s what makes us so unique,” Larry explains. “You’re dealing directly with our family when you come to us and that creates a special kind of familiarity at a pivotal time.”
Supporting families through loss creates an immediate and often lasting intimacy with a funeral director. Over the years, the Mitchell family –Larry together with his wife Colleen and son Bill-have connected with countless local families through the generations, which is the continuation of a tradition that goes back decades. “Some local families are connected with us as far back as great and great-great grandparents.”
