With sadness we announce the passing of Peter H. Kanigan after
he suffered a major stroke.
Peter was born in Kamsack, Saskatchewan and moved with his parents and siblings to the Slocan Valley, BC around 1937. He married Mary Sherstobitoff in 1943 and they raised four sons on a small farm in Appledale. Around 1972 they moved to Castlegar.
Peter had several different occupations including skid-logging,
truck driving, CPR machine operating and back-hoe operating.
In his retirement Peter loved to travel. He visited several countries – including Russia, Cuba, Costa Rica, Honduras, Mexico and even India.
He was predeceased by his parents, Harry and Anne, and his brothers, Fred and Nick Kanigan.
Peter will be warmly remembered by his only sister, Gertie Konkin, his four sons, Andrew, Harry, Jack and Peter, his grandson, Kim Jason, many nieces and nephews, cousins, and special friends.
Special thanks to Doctors Edge, Jacobson, Trenholm, Merritt, and LaRoque and the very caring staff at Castlewood Care Home, Trail Regional Hospital and the Palliative Care Unit at Talarico Place.
Services were officiated by Peter Relkoff at the Castlegar Funeral Chapel and burial completed in Kinnaird on the 29th
of March 2011.
