-I believe his last name was Williams.
-I bowled in the YBC in Georgetown for years. He was always supportive, offering tips and pointers, and best of all encouragement. 🙂
-Remember him well from YBC days too!
- I worked with him when I was a kid
- Pete Williams. I bowled in the YBC in Georgetown a long time. He was always there Saturdays to give out advise. Worked there as well with him. Always made sure the parent score keepers got their morning coffee.
Always proud of us kids. Liked to see us returning with our awards from tournaments... and if I recall, bringing the parents back in the office for a little toast!🥃.
Miss those YBC days!
-Great guy and his sister Rose too.
-Wow this face brought be right back to Saturday morning bowling each week!
-I worked there, and bowled there in the early '70s
- ❤️❤️❤️ Peter, Rose & her family... great people!
- what was Rose’s daughters name...didn’t she marry Paul Brechin
-Christine; they’re still happily married. Great couple!
-What a wonderful man.
- Liked Rose, Bill and Pete.
-ALL GREAT PEOPLE
-YBC chocolate almonds. How many boxes of those did I sell ? Door to door.
-Bowling alley Pete and Rose were like another set of grandparents to me ❤️ great profile to share
- Mom was in a bowling league Cool Cats when I was a kid. Spent lots of time there. Friendly bunch.
- Oh this brought a tear to my eyes. So many great memories. He would come down on the Go bus on Fridays and then sleep on the recliner in the backroom all weekend. He made sure all of us kids had a safe place each weekend. So many memories...
- Lots of memories...
-Omg I totally remember him from my bowling days in Bantoms. Annie Reaman Janice Lynn

- Pete! Childhood memories there my weekends at the bowling alley ❤ his heart was in it.
- Remember him well from bowling on sat., then on those occassions for a night out. Also alowed us teens to hang out as long a we good.
- Bowling shoes! I enjoy seeing all of these photos .. memories
- I worked on Saturday's with Pete. He always had some great stories to tell.
-Thank you for all the posts and pictures Bonnie you are the best 😃
-My mom worked the snack bar for many years for them. She also bowled in the ladies afternoon league for many years as well.
-My parents George and Joan were there with him for many years on weekends
- remember your parents fondly. Joan coached us in a tournament on their 40th anniversary and we painted a banner and hung it up at OK Bowl in Orangeville to thank them for coaching us...we bought them a jade elephant too. (The things that pop up when you think back). We were so touched that they chose to spend their anniversary with us.
- your parents were so committed to helping young people learn to bowl. That is why Georgetown Bowl produced such top young bowlers in the late 1960s at the Bantam Boys age level. We had many Provincial and National Champions. Pete created the environment.
- He always supported the youth bowling a great guy
-Started bowling with Pete offering coaching advice and then went on to be a coach myself. He offered advice all of the time which made me a better coach. The bowling was never the same after he passed and Bill and Rose left
- Pete 💖
- I worked at the bowling alley as a teenager for years. Pete was in the back playing with a computer he made. (infancy of PC's). He was a funny guy. When I left for university I often wondered how Bill, Rose and Pete were doing. I'll never forget emptying those massive ash trays over and over into a steel bucket. Great guy.
- I remember those days working with you!!
-I remember him
- Awh Pete! Yes I spent my childhood there at Georgetown Bowl!
-Thx for sharing Bonnie.
His picture brought back so many different memories of when I myself bowled, my brother Jim and most of my family.
My parents, Anne + Bob Nicholson bowled and were also masters as well. ( late 60's, early seventies, I think.)
They would go with bowlers on trips as well.
This pic of Pete also brought back memories of all that and all the friends my mom and dad had thru bowling as well. Like Mr. and Mr. + Mrs. Archibald, Marg Bratkin, and many others and of course Bill, Rose and Pete.
- It´s funny how you remember people from your childhood. I never got to see the young Pete, only the older man who always seemed to be working at Georgetown Bowl. I never saw him anywhere else but seated behind the counter doing what he had to do to keep things going. As a souvenir, I sure would have liked to have a pair of bowling shoes from the bowling alley!
-Bowled for 4 years in a leaque, always a good place to go to spend the afternoon or eveing
- Original bowling alley was beside old show downstairs 1954, used to manually reset 5 pins.
- Got my first job there, setting pins.
-Loved him. Worked for him at the bowling alley and he was great to work for. He spent a lot time teaching me to bowl.
-Some of my best years were spent at this place...Standard Products bowling league and Sunday night French league. So many wonderful memories!
