Share your Memorial with Family & Friends

Deb, Glen and family, We are so sorry to see your dad go. He always carried a warm lovely smile, joking and great attitude. We will miss him. Fran is missing him terribly as they would speak almost everday. Every time I see her she always says poor Pete and how she misses him. It will definitely be an adjustment for everyone. We will always be here for you and if you need anything let us know please. If you want to come over and chill with us please do. We will see you on October 23rd. You and Glen please take care and we will see you soon! Love, Eric, Celia and Fran

I have known Pete and Joan since BEFORE they became active in Scouting--They were both very supportive for my sons in their Scout years. I can thank Joan for putting a "bug" in my ear encouraging my youngest to pursue the Eagle Degree. Pete and Joan were "right there" every step along the way (just as they were for so many esp. Hopkinton's kids) I always saw them as so very loving to everyone who came into their range-- It was so nice to have Joan come with me to celebrate when Chris graduated from his training at Ft. Devens back in 1987 --No wonder we have Camp Mac Gregor/ They were both what Scouting is all about --AND what an example they will always be!! They made our world a better place! THANK YOU for being here, Pete and Joan!!! Lynn & Joe Fournier God Bless to the family

Mr MacGregor was my Scout leader some 30 years ago now. Even after all these years have passed, my memories are fond. He was a good man and an excellent leader. He will certainly be welcomed in Heaven.

I had the pleasure of meeting Peter at DFCI. I always enjoyed seeing him when he came in. He reminded me of the grandfather I never had. He was a very nice gentleman. My condolences to you and your family.

I would like to offer my condolences to Pete's family. As a fellow scouter I know that he will be missed. He leaves a gift to us, The gift of all the boys he has helped and taught through his long years as a scout leader.

Deb, I met your dad years ago during Scout training. He was a gentle and sweet man. I didn't make the connection this summer at camp. Now I realize why you talked about camp as a huge part of your life. I think you know the legacy your dad left. You should be very proud.

I had the privelage of meeting Pete, at St Camillus in Whitinsville. He was my Uncle Ed Orff's roommate, for about a month. We had many visits together, and I am a better person for knowing him. On behalf of myself,my sister Darlene, and Uncle Ed,we offer our deepest condolences to the MacGregor family.

Pete was a consumate adventurer, whether in Scouting, where many of us knew him, or back in the days when he served in the US Navy. He was assigned, while in the Navy to the USS Salisbury Sound, a seaplane tender located in the Far East. He loved to talk about those days, and I know he had a great experience learning about the Chinese people (in Taiwan) and other places. He always told great stories of the their deployments in the South China Sea. Besides being a great sailor, Peter MacGgregor was a great Scouter, and along with his late wife, Joan, also a great Scouter, they set the standard for us to follow. There seemingly will never be such a great pair of committed personalities to bless our paths for decades to come. We are the better for his presence and leadership, and I hope no-one forgats the many wonderful experiences, the camporees, the Klondike Derbies, and on and on, that he made happen in the Tri River of the Knox trail Council(and before that, the West District of Algonquin Council,) of the Boy Scouts of America. He made it all happen! We miss him sorely already, and will continue to miss his presence for a long time yet. God bless you Pete and Joan. You were our heroes...

Pete was the archetype of the now-seldom-heard title "Christian Gentleman"; solid in his values and beliefs, knowledgeable, caring, and strong enough to be gentle in all things. I'm sure he was greeted by "Well done, good and faithful servant".

Mr. MacGregor was such a positive force in Hopkinton for so many years. I am glad that I got the opportunity to meet him years ago. Condolences from Pack 26. Frank D'Urso - Assistant Cubmaster Pack 26

Pete and his leadership will be missed by the Hopkinton Scout Leader Assocation. We can't visit Camp MacGregor without being inspired by good memories of him sharing laughs and plans for the Scouts of Hopkinton. My deepest sympathies to his family and other friends. Kevin Perkins

Pete will be deeply missed. He was a great friend to our entire family for many years. He was my brother's scout leader as well as our friend's Dad growing up. We have many found memories. As and adult I had the pleasure of knowing Pete through business and the Mason's. He always had a kind word, a big smile and much pride in his family & community. We were all blessed to have had Pete in our lives. God Speed on your journey home friend.

Pete was a mentor and infinite resource to me as a scout leader. Many boys and men have benefited greatly from his friendly manner and inspirational insight. Rest in peace.

Posted by Joe Gorski on September 8, 2011

My condolences to the family. Pete will be missed by several organizations for which he volunteered so many hours. Nobody will be able to take his place. Hopefully he now will be at peace.

Posted by Annelies van Raalten on September 8, 2011

We will miss you Pete. You were such a leader in the Scouting Community. You inspired us to give more of ourselves in an effort to inspire others. We will continue to use you as our guide. May you be at peace.

Pete will be so sorely missed. What a wonderful man - so dedicated to sharing his love of scouting. I will always think of him when I hear "100 Scouts." He lived his values and shared so much with so many. His family is very much in my thoughts.
