After the war he lived several years in England, and then moved to Canada in 1955, settling in Edmonton. He joined the Hudson’s Bay Company, where he remained for the rest of his working life.

Peter married his sweetheart, Eileen Kapler, 52 years ago on February 6,1960. Together they had four sons: Paul, Tim (Sharon-Marie), Robert, and Gregory Mavko. He had two grandchildren Karl and Marie Mavko. Two brothers Ivan Mavko and Božo Mavko, plus many nieces and nephews, also survive him.

Peter’s family welcomes your cards and well wishes, but flowers or gifts are not necessary. Instead, donations in his memory to “Covenant Health - Youville Home”, 9A St. Vital Avenue, St. Albert AB, T8N 1K1 would be a loving tribute. Peter spent his finals years happily with his beloved Eileen at the Youville Home, where they both received wonderful care.

A Funeral Mass for Peter will be held on Thursday, June 28, 2012, at the Chapel in the Connelly-McKinley Funeral Home, 9 Muir Drive, St. Albert, starting at 2 p.m. All are welcome.

In Loving Memory of
