Peter grew up on a farm in Manitoba, and worked in various mines in Northern Ontario, before choosing a 25 year career as a Chartered Life Underwriter.

The Wiebe family moved back to Winnipeg in 1965, and then to their home in White Rock, BC in 1978, where he and Margaret also ran a Care Facility. He was an accomplished musician (guitar, baritone, harmonica) and a talented singer (quartets and choirs). He particularly enjoyed Southern Gospel Music. Peter was an active and faithful member of the Pentecostal Church – including leadership roles. Peter was both a family man and a handyman. He enjoyed telling entertaining stories about previous events and experiences. One of his favorite pastimes was studying the history of Mennonites and their culture.
