Peter Henry Black

March 17, 1939 - October 7, 2016

Tribute

‘GONE FISHIN’

Pete was born and raised in Powell River. He joined the United States Navy after high school and following, many adventures abroad, he returned home to live life to its fullest: golfing, fishing and boating with close friends.

He later became a Life Master at bridge. He worked as a union carpenter in the mill for most of his work life. Pete spent many years honing his skills, trolling the lakes and ocean up and down the coast. The thing that brought Pete the most joy was passing on those skills to the next generation so they could experience what he had known and loved his whole life. Whether it was freshly caught salmon, prawns and crab or vegetables he had grown in his own garden, Pete couldn’t give enough away to the people in his life. As described by his brother Ian, he was generous to a fault.

We, your family and friends, love you, Pete. Thank you so much for all the great memories and everything you have given us. You will be greatly missed and warmly remembered always.

A big thank-you to Dr. Burns and to the nurses in the oncology unit and on the fourth floor at Powell River General Hospital. Donations in Pete’s name to Powell River Hospital Foundation or Canadian Cancer Society would be greatly appreciated.

Relation: Long time friend

My thoughts are with Pete’s family and friends. I was lucky enough to have Pete as a fishing partner, bridge partner and friend for 35 years. During my visits to Pete while he was in hospital in Vancouver and just before he went into the hospital in Powell River for the last time, we had long conversations of the good times when we fished both locally and up the coast. We sat on his deck looking over the ocean at the most beautiful beach in Powell River and reminisced of crabbing and prawning ventures. We also talked of family and many friends that were helping him during his illness. He expressed his good fortune to have so many people offering their assistance and his luck at having so many good friends. He will be missed
