July 12, 1928 – Waugh, AB
March 4, 2015 – Calgary, AB
The Oilers and Eskimos are short one fan as our family is saddened to announce the passing of our father, grandfather, companion, friend, Peter Strilchuk on Wednesday, March 4, 2015 at the age of 86 years.
He was predeceased by his leading lady of fifty-eight years, Linda, on October 10, 2014. It is likely they are now dancing to “Some Enchanted Evening”, among the stars.
Peter was born in Waugh, AB on July 12, 1928. He was raised on a farm along with his sisters Elsie and Virginia. Peter didn’t shy away from hard work. He attended the University of Alberta and from there, embarked on a lifelong career in pharmaceutical sales. He was active in the community serving as baseball and hockey coach in Willow Park and Mapleridge. Many Saturday nights at home were spent making perogies and watching Hockey Night in Canada. This art he passed on to his children and grandchildren, ensuring the felling of eating one too many perogies is shared with the next generation.
Peter will be remembered as a loving, kind and gentle man whose unwavering dedication to his wife and family set an example for all of us to follow.
Peter is survived by his daughter Patty (Sil) Tartal); sons Russ (Laura) Strilchuk and Greg Strilchuk; six grandchildren, Julia and Bryan Tartal, Kyla and Russell Strilchuk and Jordan and Justine Strilchuk. He also leaves behind his sister Elsie and numerous nieces and nephews. Besides his loving wife Linda, Peter was predeceased by his sister Virginia and youngest son Bryan in 1993.
