Canadian bridge has lost a significant member and friend with the passing of Peter Herold. Peter died peacefully in his sleep after a long, optimistic and courageous battle with cancer.
Peter was a part of the lives of many Canadian bridge players. He was taught to play bridge at a young age by his grandmother, and always loved the game. He became a passionate, skilled, and highly regarded duplicate player.
His significant accomplishments included victories in the Canadian National Team Championships, the Canadian Open Pairs Championships, and the Australian National Open Pairs.
His sense of humour and love of life will be greatly missed by his wife, Alana, and his many friends. A big party will be planned at a future date in Victoria, to commemorate his passing.
