January 12, 1963 – July 16, 2020
Gerald Peter born January 12, 1963, passed away suddenly July 16, 2020 at 57.
Gerry was born in Kamloops, BC to Elfie and the late Josef Peter and was raised on the Double T Ranch, Bridge Lake, BC.
These early years forged friendships that continued throughout his life.
Growing up in Bridge Lake provided Gerry with a love of the outdoors that would last his lifetime.He shared this passion with his kids who have endless stories of adventures with their Dad. Many of which were not to be shared with Mom.
Never content with what was familiar, Gerry moved south and married Laura in 1988. What a party that was!
They moved to Nanaimo and proceeded to have their three kids. Gerry was an unparalleled father. His affectionate nature and hands-on style provided his kids with an upbringing full of love, experiences and a unique outlook that enabled them to confidently embark on their own journeys in life.
Recent times brought more truck and camper explorations, there was always somewhere new to go, never was a day wasted. Gerry and Laura took every opportunity to celebrate the life they created together.
His new grandson and namesake was the absolute joy of his life and will remember his Papa through the stories we will tell him forever.
Gerry is survived by his mother Elfriede, his wife Laura, his 3 children, Josef (Chambers), Natasha (Shaun) Reimer, Lukas, his grandson Marshall Gerald, his brother Klaus, sister Elfie, nieces and nephews.
Celebration postponed due to current events.
