Peter Gerd Hagen Kirmis

April 3, 1939 - November 15, 2014


Born in Berlin, Germany, Peter managed to survive the horrors of the war as a very young boy, along with his mother and four siblings. He never knew his father; an enduring sadness for him. Alone, Peter immigrated to Canada at 21 and successfully established himself in Vancouver as a businessman and devout member of the Church of Christ, Oakridge. He married Edie Schmidt and together they had a son Hagen and daughter Karla. When Edie passed away after 25 years of marriage Peter relocated to Powell River where he met Victoria in 1992. They married three years later, in 1995.

Peter was a man of great integrity, energy and intense convictions. He loved to dance, drove race cars as a younger man, liked to sail, building was his passion and gardening was in his soul. He did everything with élan. He had a challenging and varied life and lived it with enthusiasm and determination.

He had a beautiful smile, the most wonderful manners to the end, and was a true gentleman. Peter is loved and will be missed, and is precious to my soul. Gute Nacht mein Schatz.

The family wishes to thank most gratefully the nurses at Olive Devaud Residence and Dr. S. Burns for their wonderful care and staff at Powell River General Hospital who cared for him in his last days..
