August 29, 1929 (Paula, Malta) – October 9, 2019 (Etobicoke, Ontario)
As the only surviving son of Paul and Lucia Borg, young Peter did his best to care for the family during the brutal World War in Malta. At night he would steal fruits & vegetables from far-off farm fields to feed his hungry family. During the day he would skirt bomb blasts to pick up the brass shell casings.
The young Peter married the love of his life, Marian Douglas. With a young child on the way he ran a small bike repair shop, later turning his attention to motor cars as a roving Mechanic.
Moving to Canada in the early 1950's, he honed his field as a mechanic with Ensign Motors in Toronto and by racing at Mosport Speedway. At Douglas Aircraft he worked in the aircraft wings & challenged management as a union representative, with many a story to tell. Later, he owned a successful Esso service station in Oakville.
His early sports and pastimes included auto racing, rugby, soccer, fishing, camping and hunting. He was also a small hero when he ran into his father's burning bedroom & carried him to safety.
Once retired, it was a life of travel on cruise ships to several countries, a home in Florida and the cottage at McKellar Lake.
Preceding Peter his baby son Sam and his wife Marian. His remaining immediate family are his children: Elizabeth Rizun (Russell), Norman Borg (Nancy), James Borg (Susan), his grandchildren: Kimberlee Glynn (Jason), Steven Rizun, Erick Borg, Amber Borg and his great grandchildren: Noah and Simon Glynn. Following the mass, there will be a small reception at St. Christopher's Church in the basement hall.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Peter's name to St. Christopher's Church.
