Obituary of Peter Paskie

Peter Anthony Paskie, passed away on the morning of October 10th, 2017 in his home in Langley, B.C.   Peter was the third child of Theodore Arnold Paskie, and Joan Teresa Paskie, and was born in North York, Ontario.  He was younger brother to oldest sister, Janette Landry, and older sister, Marynna Berezowski, and was older brother to Ronald Paskie.  Peter grew up in Ontario, and enjoyed his family cottage at Lake Simcoe.  He spent many summers swimming all day in the lake, and building snow forts in the winter.  He moved to Vancouver, B.C., when he was 11 years old, and graduated from Delta Secondary School in Ladner. Peter was an excellent athlete and participated in many sports including softball, tennis, and boxing.  He won the National Boxing Championship title twice, and was a 3-time golden glove champion as well. His father, Ted Paskie, supported both him, and his National Boxing Championship brother Ron, in this sport.Peter was also a very creative artist, and could be found drawing in his spare time as a youth.  He also had a very innovative mind, and was always trying to invent solutions to everyday practical problems.  Peter began working in construction as a young man, and formed Paskie Developments, where he was a successful contractor who built, and remodelled homes in BC’s lower mainland.  His creative skills, and hard work ethic, as well as his integrity, made him a much sought-after contractor.As a friend, Peter was loyal, and fun to be around.  His witty, and dry sense of humour kept everyone in smiles, and he had many friends.  He was father to Erika, Kayla, and Angelica Paskie, whom he loved, and was extremely proud of. We are heartbroken that he has left our presence at such a young age, but we pray that he is in heaven, rejoicing with the angels.A Celebration of Life will be held at St. Andrew's Anglican Church at 20955 Old Yale Rd, Langley, BC, on Sunday, October 29th, at 1:30pm. All are welcome.
