Peacefully, with family by his side, Neils ‘Peter’ Klein, beloved husband of Joyce, loving father of David (& Mary) of Toronto, Beth (& Guy) Robitaille of Arnprior, Pat (& Andy) Lalonde of Kanata, Karen (& Stephen) Shurvin of Dundas and the late Carol (& Les) Schryburt. Cherished grandfather of Kate, Mike, James, Jon, Patrick, Sarina, Noah and Brianna and dear brother of the late Johanne, Bill, Eric, Elisabeth and Gerry.
The son of a Danish diplomat, Peter was born and raised in Toronto and had many fond memories of summers spent at his family cottage in Burk’s Falls. He married Joyce, his wife of 68 years, in 1951 and they eventually settled in Bancroft where they raised their 5 children.
Pete was dedicated to his family and community. He was a member of the Bancroft Lions Club for 65 years and received the Melvin Jones Fellowship Award which is the “highest form of recognition to acknowledge an individual’s dedication to humanitarian service”. One of his main contributions was coordinating the annual Santa Claus Parade for many years.
Peter managed Bancroft Lumber which turned into Peterborough Lumber, Cashway, and then RONA. He met numerous community members through his work and built relationships near and far. He retired in 1990.
He loved to spend time outdoors swimming, canoeing, cross country skiing, golfing, and hiking. He enjoyed these activities well into his 80’s when he continued to be active by walking daily. He was an avid reader and always had a book on hand.
Peter spent time with friends on fishing trips, annual hunting trips, and regular poker games. He was a member of the Bancroft Curling Club and the Bancroft Golf Club.
A quick witted man with a quiet intelligence. Peter was a true gentleman who loved his wife and family dearly. He will be deeply missed and forever remembered.
Interment will be held in the spring at Mount Pleasant Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, the family has requested donations to the charity of your choice.

Dear Pat & family. You are in our thoughts daily. Your dad was quite the guy. I always loved being in his company. He had a zest for life, a wonderful smile and what a handsome man he was. Your mom and dad always looked sooo happy and very proud of there children and grandchildren. Your dad lived a long wonderful life and he’s onto his next journey. Rest in piece and you will see your dad in heaven. Always remember “that one day in heaven is like a hundred years on earth”. It’s only a blink of an eye until we all re-unite with our loved ones. Keep strong. Love you. Maureen, Claude & Justin
