We regret to announce the passing of Peter Stecyk on Sunday, August 4, 2013 in Vernon at the age of 93 years. Peter was born on the family farm in Carvel, Alberta on July 24, 1920 and spent his early years working on the farm. He spent time working in the coal mines in Drumheller and as an iron worker in Edmonton. He also worked on the construction of the DEW Line in the Canadian Arctic. In the early 70’s he moved to Vernon to work with his brother Tom at Mainline Welding Supplies where he worked until he retired. In retirement he continued to drop in to the shop to do odd jobs and provide advice and opinions on just about any subject. Many customers affectionately referred to him as “Uncle Pete”. Peter is survived by brother’s Walter (Margaret) and Tom (Shirley) and sister Helen. He was pre-deceased by his beloved wife Betty in September 2000, by his parents Mathew and Pearl and by brother’s Mike, Morris, Henry, Bill, and sisters Mary, Anne and Rose.
Peter will be specially missed by nephews Dave, Jim and Lorne.
There will be no service at Peter’s request.
