    Peter deMarsh was President of the International Family Forest Alliance IFFA, since 2011.

    He was one of the most humble, devoted, kind hearted person we have met. Unselfish he stood up for moral and human principles. He couldn’t stand human exploitation wherever it occurred. His fighting spirits for values were outstanding. A man, whose wisdom was nonetheless recognized by everyone who knew him, Peter deMarsh was an exceptional human being, a mentor and friend beloved by his colleagues.

    What he has meant for and achieved for IFFA and Family Forestry Globally, always having focus on the family grower is so impressive. His work has been so inspiring for the rest of us in the Family Forestry family.

    Peter a close Canadian friend, will be sorely missed. Our thoughts go to his family.
