MUSTAPIC, Petar (Pero)

October 24, 1961 – November 30, 2011

The family announces with sorrow the passing of Petar Mustapic, beloved husband of Viktoria, on Wednesday, November 30, 2011 at the age of 50 years. His vibrant spirit and passion for life carried him throughout his twenty month battle with cancer which he faced heroically, and without complaint up until his final breath when he went home to be with his loving Saviour.

Pero was born in Split, Croatia on October 24th, 1961. He grew up in Lovrec, Croatia as the oldest of five children, helping his parents raise his siblings. He loved working in the family vineyards, playing soccer and enjoying the Dalmatian coast. In August 1990, he originally came to Canada to visit his uncle Dinko, aunt Julka and cousins, Dennis and Joseph; however, he ended up meeting the love of his life and creating a new life and home in Calgary. What never changed for Pero, though, was his devotion to God, family, his native Croatia and his innate ability to bring people together with humour, laughter and love.

Pero was married to his beloved wife, Viktoria, for twenty years. In addition to Viktoria he is survived by his son, Marin and his daughter, Ivana of Calgary. He is survived by his mother Marija, brothers Evelin (Marija), Predrag (Ankica), Ante (Marija), sister Andjelka and numerous nieces and nephews of Croatia. He is also survived by his in-laws, Viktor and Vesna Dermanovic, Ivan (Julia), Tina (Bud) and more nieces and nephews in Calgary. Pero was predeceased by his father Marijan.

Funeral Mass will be celebrated at Our Lady of Marija Bistrica Roman Catholic Church (14675 Deer Ridge Drive SE) on Saturday December 3, 2011 at 11:00 a.m. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com. If friends so desire, memorial tributes may be made directly to the Alberta Cancer Foundation, c/o Tom Baker Cancer Centre, 1331 – 29 Street N.W., Calgary, AB T2N 4N2 Telephone: 1 (866) 412-4222. www.albertacancer.ca/memorial.

In living memory of Petar Mustapic a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES Park Memorial Chapel, 5008 ELBOW DRIVE S.W. Telephone: (403)243-8200

  3. With the heaviest heart, I give you my deepest condolences. You had an amazing father/husband who always managed to make everyone laugh and genuinely smile. I was Ivana’s age when I lost my father, and I felt so cheated that he was so young when he passed. However, I slowly realized, the years we did have together were filled with more laughs, precious moments and love than many others will experience in a lifetime, and I’m sure you feel the same. Keep those memories close to your heart and remember that he will always be by your side whenever you need him.

    It is with our deepest sympathy to hear about the passing of Pero. What a guy, never did I see him once where he wasn’t smiling or laughing. My kids will remember him as Krumpus (the funniest Grinch ever).Pero was the man who made people laugh and always made a difference to all who knew him. May his wonderful ways be carried forward to two beautiful children Marin and Ivana. And to you Vicki, may God keep your strong through this difficult time and years ahead. Not many are fortunate to have a beautiful family like yours and may you have many memories to reflect on in the future. Our deepest condolensces. Family Richardson.

  15. Josipovic Family :

    Pero, you touched our family in so many special ways – the way only true and honest friendship knows how. You taught each of us to laugh harder, smile more often, and express our love towards one another with greater passion and meaning. Sometimes you were simply in the right place at the right time to listen, and provide comfort when we needed it most – like the genuine caring and compassion you afforded our family over the past few months. For this we thank you with all the love in our hearts.

    Our family prays that the courage and strength you exhibited will inspire and comfort all those that love you, especially Viki, Marin, and Ivana. You will always be our Perice, Pajdo, and Mr. Pero!

    Love Sandra, Tony, Anthony, and Philip Josipovic xoxo
