Peter Alan Meldrum

December 5, 1936-October 7, 2018

Peter slipped quietly away on October 7, 2018 after a brief stay in the Arnprior and District Memorial Hospital.  Predeceased by his parents, George and Hilda Meldrum of Toronto, Ontario and sister Eileen.  Survived by his wife Sheila MacBain Meldrum of Kinburn, Ontario.  Peter was born and brought up in Toronto where he attended Upper Canada College and then acquired technical training in computers.  After working for the 3M Co. in Toronto for some years, he was transferred to Ottawa where he worked for the company for a few years and where he met Sheila.  After marrying in 1974, they combined their mutual love of horses and created and operated Carleton Stud Farm, breeding and training Thoroughbreds.  Peter took on a new challenge with the start-up computer disc maker Kao (later Didak) in Arnprior and was with them until retiring in 1994.  Peter was an avid photographer and a keen hobby machinist, producing parts for and assembling little steam engines and boilers.  Arrangements by the Boyce Funeral Home Ltd., 138 Daniel Street North, Arnprior.  In keeping with his wishes, there will be no funeral or service.  Those wishing to pay their respects could make donations to the Canadian Cancer Society or the Ottawa Humane Society in his name.
