Peter Dimitri Lazin

17 June, 193329 January, 2021

Peter passed away peacefully at his home in Puslinch on Friday, January 29, 2021. Husband of 53 years of the late Joan (nee Scott; d. 2017).

Son of the late George and Emilie (Haupt) Lazin. Proud father of Daniel Lazin, Joanne McQuinn (Craig Spencer), and David (Nicole) Lazin. Much adored “Poppy” of Adam and Amanda McQuinn, and Hailee and Terri-Lynn Lazin.

Survived by his three sisters, Helen Majunke, Alicia Bull, and Millie Lazin, as well as his brother-in-law Stan (Mary) Scott and many nieces and nephews.

Born in 1933 in Kitchener, Ontario, and later moving to Puslinch after designing and building the family house himself, Peter worked for a division of Electrohome (which later became Fasco Motors) as a manufacturing engineer for 42 years.

Peter was hard working, kind, friendly, and had a unique sense of humour. He was full of great stories, history, and loads of trivia gained from many years of being a loyal fan of Jeopardy.

He made friends everywhere he went and never hesitated to lend a hand to his many friends and neighbours, whether it was moving, cutting firewood, plowing snow, farming or herding loose cattle back home.

Peter enjoyed working (and hunting) on the hobby farm he inherited from his father, which was often a full time job in addition to his full time job.

In retirement, he still enjoyed puttering away on the farm. Even when his health deteriorated, Peter spent countless hours sitting and overlooking his serene view of Mill Creek and all of his wildlife visitors.

Peter’s biggest joy in life, however, was the time he spent with his grandchildren, having become a grandfather just two months after retiring.

Peter will be greatly missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing him.

In accordance with his wishes, cremation has taken place and a private celebration of life will be held at a later date.

As expressions of sympathy, donations to the Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada would be appreciate by his family.

My deepest Sympathy for your loss of Peter.
I worked for many years with him at Electrohome Fasco…
He was one such a wonderful man.

May you have your memories for comfort,
Friends for support,
And flowers to ease your sadness.

"I know for certain that we never lose the people we love, even to death.

They continue to participate in every act, thought and decision we make.

Their love leaves an indelible imprint in our memories.

We find comfort in knowing that our lives have been enriched by having shared their love".

May the Angel’s surround you and comfort you at this time.

You are all in my prayers.

The Alexander family wishes to offer their condolences to Dan, Joanne, David, Amanda, Adam, Hailee and Terri-Lynn upon the loss of their Father and Grandfather; and to Helen, Alicia and Emilie, upon the loss of their Brother. Uncle Pete always had a twinkle in his eye and a joke ready to share. He will be missed by many but, I'm sure, especially by Dan, who cared for him every single day since Aunt Joan passed. Our thoughts and prayers are with your family now and always and we pray that memories of happier days will be a comfort during this difficult time.
