December 22, 1927 – November 22, 2010
Peter Leitch, beloved husband, father and grandfather, passed away peacefully in the early morning of November 22, 2010, after a long and fulfilling life.
Peter was born in Kerrobert, Saskatchewan and moved at an early age to Winnipeg. He came to Calgary in the early 1950’s where he met and married Betty. He is survived by his wife Betty; his children Cindy (Gary), Peter (Leslie), Pamela (Roger), David (Joanne), and Benson; and 13 grandchildren. He was predeceased by his brother, Lorne and sister, Peggy. He will always be remembered as a fun loving, kind and generous man, devoted to the happiness and success of his family. During his retirement he was particularly involved with and incredibly proud of the accomplishments of his grandchildren.
Peter had a distinguished career as an insurance broker, holding many executive positions with Reed Stenhouse (Aon) and predecessor companies. He and the family much enjoyed his career postings in Calgary, Toronto, New York and Bermuda. Many adventures were had and close and lasting friendships made along the way.
