Born in Shenstone, he was the son of Lewis and Anna-Joyce (Steeves) Murray, and he was raised by his late grandparents Grace and Ernest Steeves whom he loved very much.
Peter spent his younger years driving cars fast through Shenstone and Hillsborough and going to dances, which he loved to do! He spent many years working horses and in the woods with his late father-in-law, Eric Weir. It was then that the love of horse pulling began!
Peter worked for Hub Meat Packers Ltd. for many years before his retirement. A large part of his life was his involvement with horses, he could often be found at horse shows cheering on his and other kids or helping out where needed, horse pulls which he loved to do with his sons and later on grandchildren who also love horse pulling, for many years Peter gave sleigh rides throughout the winter and loved to see and meet everyone that came. Peter was also part of 4-H for many years and opened his home as a foster home also. Peter enjoyed many years of football games near and far with his son Tony.
