Fond memories of the nine years Father Peter spent with us at Keith. Special memory of his kindness and thoughtfulness during the illness and death of my husband, May he rest in peace.

May Reverend Father Peter Fountain Rest In Peace. Father Peter was a first-cousin to my Granny (Perth, WA). Father Peter’s father Pat was a brother of my Granny’s father. So, Father Peter’s paternal grandparents were my great-great-grandparents. My condolences and love to all the family in Adelaide. Love from Katie Cranfield

Louise Johnson -

Father Peter was the Parish Priest at St James church in Keith as my children were growing up and I worked with him to help the children prepare for sacraments. He was hard working, devoted to his ministry and looked after the pastoral care of his parishioners to the best of his ability. I respected Fr Peter and was happy to support him as he did with us. RIP Fr Peter, you served your God well.
