Obituary of Peter Gray
It is with heavy, but full, hearts, that we share the passing of our husband, dad, grandfather, uncle, friend and mentor Peter Gray, on Friday September 16, 2022 at the age of 79. He died peacefully, in his sleep, at the Pilgrims Hospice in Edmonton, from the spread of the bone cancer that had been diagnosed ten years ago. Peter leaves to celebrate his life, Hilary, his loving wife of 56 years, son Andy (Michelle), daughter Julia (Fergal), five cherished grandchildren, Dawson, Caetlyn and Leah Gray, Neala and Cormac Peters, and in England his brother Duncan (Beverley) and his sister Marion (Nigel), as well as many longstanding family and friends in the U.K. and Canada. After immigrating to Canada from England to teach in 1967, and again in 1970, Peter had a positive impact on all who knew him, and many will remember his awesome teaching, athletic ability, kindness, fairness, generosity of spirit, an indomitable sense of humour and his raucous laughter. Peter loved life. Cremation has taken place, and a celebration of his life will be take place soon. Donations in Peter’s name can be made to Amy’s House (www.amyshouse.ca) or Pilgrims Hospice (www.pilgrimshospice.com).
