On Saturday September 19, 2009 we lost a visionary, a golfer, a rock mason, a gardener, a musician, and a folk-art sculptor. Peter Zeleny quietly and peacefully passed away at Hospice House in Vernon.
He was Stella’s husband of 55 years, father to Heather (Joe), Susan (Fayez), and Patricia (Leo). Grampa to Monir, Tarek, Aleya and Manel, and a brother to Caroline Lane and Josephine Eshpeter.
Peter was the past president of the B.C. Elks organization that benefited children no matter of their economical status. He became very involved in the Vernon Golf and Country Club and was honoured with a life membership. The cancer that took him wouldn’t have stood a chance if it was a living, breathing person. It snuck in and stole our Dad quickly.
His passing is sad, but please don’t remember Peter with tears. Put on your hat and go golfing.
In lieu of flowers, please donate to the charity of your choice. Those who knew Peter are welcome to join us at the Vernon Golf and Country Club between 3:00 and 4:30 pm on Tuesday, October 6, 2009, for refreshments and a celebration of Peter’s life.
