(December 22, 1950 – December 6, 2015) – After a courageous battle with cancer, Peter passed away peacefully with his family at his side at Algoma Residential Community Hospice (ARCH).

Peter will be dearly missed by his sons Michael and Matthew (Nicole), brother Jerry (Zena), nephews and nieces Zirka, Adrian (Anahita), Damian, Kalyna and many friends. Predeceased by his parents Stefania and Mykola.

Peter graduated from Lakehead University and worked at the Canadian Forestry Research Centre. Peter was a kind and generous friend to many and a loving father. He was always there to help anyone with his expertise as a “Jack of all trades”. He was an avid outdoorsman, spending time at the cottage – the joy of his life.

Friends may call at the Arthur Funeral Home & Cremation Centre on Wednesday, December 9, 2015 from 9 until 10:30. Funeral mass will follow at St. Mary’s Ukrainian Church (293 St. George’s Ave.) at 11 am. Father Jaroslaw Lazoryk officiating.
