Peter J. ADAMS
On April 21, we said goodbye to our wonderful husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather, Peter John Adams. Peter went peacefully surrounded by family and embraced in their love. He leaves behind the love of his life, and wife of over 65 years, Margaret. He also leaves behind his children Mike, Kathy and Christine, and their respective families.
Peter was born in 1928 in England. After spending time in Canada, where he was evacuated in WWII, he returned to England. Peter proudly served 2.5 years with the Royal Navy. Then he met Margaret. They were married in 1950 and emigrated to Canada in 1952. Peter worked for Woodward’s for 35 years and provided a good life for his family. Peter’s passions included boating and singing tenor in Barbershop. He was a member of both the Victoria Village Squires and The Nanaimo Tidesmen.
First and foremost, Peter was a family man. He passed on his wisdom and values to his family. He will always be loved and remembered.
Peter’s celebration of life will be held 2:00 PM, April 30th at St. Columba Presbyterian Church, 921 Wembley Rd., Parksville BC. The family wishes to thank the amazing staff at Trillium Hospice. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you donate to Oceanside Hospice Society.
