It is with deep sadness that the family of Peter Sookerukoff announce his passing on October 22nd, 2016. After a courageous battle with cancer but with family by his side, Peter left us peacefully and now embarks on his next journey.
Peter’s parting will leave an emptiness in the lives of many; family, long time friends and acquaintances over many years. Peter is survived by his wife, Helen Sookerukoff, their 5 children Darlene (Pat), Cindy (Doug), Carole, Rick (Dasha) and Beverly (Warren). He also leaves behind five grandchildren Amanda, Nicole, Trent, Allison, Jordan, as well as 2 great grand children, Korbin and Hayle. He also leaves a sister, Lillian Lindberg (Walter) of Nelson, BC and many other extended family members.
Peter was born and raised in Shoreacres, BC. Peter was a jack-of-all trades in the truest form, however, a carpenter was his certified profession. Peter enjoyed golf, fishing and gardening. Peter was a kind soul who always had a joke up his sleeve. He will be dearly missed by so many.
The family wishes that in lieu of flowers, contributions be made to: The Cancer Society of B.C., Hope Air or your local Hospice.
A private family “celebration of life” will be held on October 29, 2016 at 1:00pm at the Crescent Valley Hall.
