In memory of Peter deMarsh

Today New Brunswick remembers a great person. Our hearts go out to the family and friends of Peter deMarsh of Taymouth, who was among those killed in the tragic Ethiopian Airlines crash on Sunday.

Peter was known and admired by many as a champion of forest stewardship and a dedicated advocate for rural communities and woodlot owners.

Peter was the chair of the International Family Forestry Alliance, president of the Canadian Federation of Woodlot Owners, a former spokesperson for the New Brunswick Federation of Woodlot Owners, and past member of the Nashwaak Watershed Association who spent his life fighting for sustainable forestry practices at home and abroad.

Please drop by at any time. Say a prayer, have a chat, or just visit and remember Peter.
