Peter John Shelepiuk

1932 ~ 2017

Passed away peacefully at

home amongst his beloved

wife and granddaughter and

now resides someplace over

the rainbow. He reached

85 years of a fulfilling

adventurous and loving life.

He was born in Fort Frances,

Ontario in 1932 and was the

only son to Peter and Elsie

Shelepiuk of Thunder Bay,

Ontario. At a young age, his

interest in the Theatre and the Performing Arts

led him to dance, sing, act, paint and play the

piano around the world. Wherever he went he

would spread laughter and joy for his audience.

On April 20, 1997 he married Barbara, his

beautiful wife that he met under a rainbow

of hope and they retired to live peacefully in

Duncan, BC. He is survived by his wife Barbara,

daughter Danuta and grandchildren Michael and

Bianka. His legacy of charity continued well

into his last years, he helped to distribute bread

to the less fortunate and volunteered tirelessly

with charities around Duncan. His unconditional

love for strangers carries on in all the hundreds

of hearts he has touched. A Funeral Service will

be held on Sunday, May 7, 2017 at 1:30 pm at

St. Peter’s Anglican Church, 5800 Church Road

in Duncan. Interment will follow at St. Peter’s

Cemetery. After the interment, a reception will

be held in the church hall. Condolences may be

Peter’s message to the world always was

“Leave the world behind a little better than you

have found it.” Peter you did it!!
