October 2, 1924 – February 15, 2019
It is with sadness we announce the passing of Pete. Pete was born in Crossfield, AB and spent his younger years moving around Alberta with his parents following the rodeos.
Edson – farmed in Quesnel. He came to BC in 51. He came to Terrace to work in Pohle Mill. Then went to Black Pool to work in a mine. When his step father Horce Vance got hurt he came to Terrace to drive truck, then formed V&S trucking. Later in 1970, he and his wife Jessie formed Kermode Ent operating a logging truck. In 1978 they sold the truck & Pete went to work at the airport as heavy equipment operator to round out his working life.
Pete was very active in the Terrace Elks spending 2 years as Exhalted Ruler plus 2 years District Dept. In retirement he & Jessie travelled a lot & spent many, his camping at Kalum Lake.
He is survived by his loving wife Jessie & their blended family, Laine (Bonnie), Mona (Andy) Paige & Stan (Pegay), Dale (Shelly), Lyn (Pooran), Kelly (Ronda), 13 grandchildren, 15 great grandchildren + 5 great great grandchildren.
He was predeceased by stepson Trace, grandson Kelvin, sister May.
The family would like to thank Dr Fourie, Dr. Dufield & Dr. Debraine and the most wonderful staff in the world – the staff at Terrace View Lodge who took such good care of Pete & Jessie during this trying time. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
