1924 ~ 2012
Peacefully on Wednesday, January 25, 2012 after breakfast, our beloved father, grandfather and great-grandfather left to be with His soul mate and son.
Peter will be sadly missed by his daughters Rose (Danny), Marie (Bob) and Jackie (son in-law Bryant); Gege to Michael (Cinzia), Sherry (Harvey), Lisa (Derek), Jason (Caroline), Kimberley and his special angels Alexandria, Mikey, Ashlee, Brendan and Brooklyn and sister Mary. He was predeceased by his wife Johanna of 63 years, his beloved son Walter, granddaughter Lillian, parents, brothers and sisters of Ukraine.
Peter was born in Ukraine and at the age of 18 was taken from his family during the war to work in Germany. There he met his soul mate Johanna and they were married in 1944.
In 1949, they relocated to France and in 1951 they came to Canada and settled in Pointe du Bois to raise their family. Dad worked for Winnipeg Hydro until his retirement. They moved to Lac du Bonnet in 1982. Dad was an amazing husband, father and gege whose first love was his family. He loved us all with an unfailing, unconditional love and was always there for us.
Dad was always there to give us a helping hand. His specialty was gardening. He loved floor curling and shuffle board. He was known as “Gege” to many, young and old.
Special thanks to Dr. Van Gend and all the wonderful staff at the Pinawa Hospital for the excellent care given to Dad during his time there. Also a big thank you to the Homecare Workers for all the years of excellent care.
Should friends desire, donations in Peter’s memory can be made to Pinawa Hospital, Box 220, Pinawa, MB R0E 1L0.
