Peter Nash



With great sadness we announce the passing of Peter Nash on Friday, September 15, 2017 at the age of 90. Peter is survived by his loving daughters Marilyn and Kathy (Tom Gooden); sons Timothy (Bonnie) and James (Lorraine); granddaughter Hannah (Jonathan Thorowsky); and his brother Harold and sisters Mary and Pauline. He was predeceased by his loving wife Amy, siblings Mike, Irene, Kay, Nancy, John, Anna, and Eva.

Peter grew up near Thorhild, Alberta working on the family farm while attending school. He then went on to the University of Alberta, graduating in Electrical Engineering in 1952. He married Amy in 1953 and together they raised four children. They moved into their West Edmonton home in 1957 and Peter continued to live there until last December. He spent his time taking care of his home and perfecting the yard with his tremendous gardening skills.

After graduation Peter worked for the Provincial Government as an Electrical Inspector for 12 years, before moving to the Electrical Engineering branch, he then took an early retirement at the age of 56. After that he embarked upon planning and building a beautiful addition to the house. He kept himself busy with many hobbies; including teaching crafts to the residents at the Cancer Clinic and serving on the board of the Provincial Employees Credit Union. Peter was an active parishioner at St. Johnís the Evangelist, serving the church in various capacities for over 60 years. He loved being a grandfather to Hannah, building toys and forts together for their enjoyment. Peter and Amy spent 58 years of wonderful married life, exploring the world in each others company.
