With very sad hearts, the family of Peter Dergousoff wishes to announce his passing, with his loving family at his side, at his home in Slocan, BC on September 30, 2015. He was blessed with 70 years of life.
Peter was born in Grand Forks, BC on June 20, 1945 to parents Vera and Constantine Dergousoff. He met and married the love of his life, Dorothy Rezansoff, in 1967 and they raised 3 children. His passion was gold mining and he worked his claim whenever possible. Peter was well loved and respected throughout the community because he unconditionally gave of his time to help all. His generosity, good humour and hearty laugh will be missed by all who knew him.
