In memory of: Peter Johannsson
Message: Elaine, we just read an obituary notice about Peter and are truly shaken. We both loved Peter and remember him so fondly from Massey College days and our too few get together over the years. This is a huge loss for you. We remember our last dinner with you both and our daughter Mary in Picton at Waring house a few years ago. Very saddened. We wish you well in the comfort of your family and grateful community.

Message: Please also accept my deepest condolences to Dr. Johannsson’s family, friends and devoted, exceptional, staff. Time has moved on since his untimely departure, but this amazing man's passing remains so current. As my family doctor and, now grown, my children's family doctor, the comfort of knowing he always had our best interests in mind is the very positive legacy which will remain with us - always. I can't imagine a more caring physician. It would be only right and highly appropriate to recognize his incredible contributions to the good health of so many of us - what can/what should we do in his memory? What more could we have asked of any physician? He was truly remarkable - thank you Peter.

Message: I first met Peter while he was working in Picton emerg and I was a Paramedic. This was 38 years ago. He eventually became my family doctor and we forged a lovely relationship together. He would share his life goings with me and I him. We also shared a love of horses and dogs. I loved him. We were friends not just patient and doctor. I feel the hole since his passing and all of the fond memories of chats we shared. He was also such a kind and caring doctor. One that will likely never be replaced. Rest well my friend. We’ve got it from here. Xo

In memory of: Dr. Peter Johannsson
Message: My deepest condolences to Dr. Johannsson’s family and dear friends. He was physician to both me and my mother. When I first started seeing Dr. Johannsson I was struck by how, when he asked how I was doing, he would sit and listen - a marked difference from my previous, Toronto doctor, who would ask and then look away and be pre-occupied with some task or other. When I commented on the his approach he said, ‘I’ve learned that if I don’t sit and listen, I can miss things that would otherwise take two or three more visits to find out’.
It was this attentive listening, along with his curiosity about the lives of the people he worked so hard to help, his understanding and acceptance of their nature, and his incorporation of the whole person into his medical approach that made him such a treasure to have as a physician. When my mother moved out of the County, he still asked about her, talked about who she was and always did so with a sense of care and compassion.
I know that Dr. Johannsson kept working for his patients even when his own health was poor.
He was aware of the enormous challenges in our health care system and he did his best for many years to protect us. We talked briefly about this on our last phone call. While I thanked him then, it would be impossible to fully express my gratitude to him for all he gave as a healer and carer. We have lost more than our local doctor, we’ve lost a unique individual who was truly dedicated to doing his best for those around him. I’m deeply grateful that Mum and I were both the recipients of his work and kindness.
