Kamloops, B.C.

Peter John Milbers passed away gently, peacefully on October 31, 2017.

In the early 1950’s an adventurous, young German man entered Canada following a dream to play professional soccer. His journey brought him to Winnipeg in November, (clearly a miscommunication) thankfully he was directed to BC.

Peter went on to become an amazingly skilled, hard working carpenter. His signature was in the strength and sturdiness of all he built, including many of Kamloops original high rises.

Thank you dad/opa, despite being a prisoner of war 4 years, for staying positive, accepting and making the best of what showed up in life.

Thank you to all the Juniper residents who waved, honked, greeted dad at the base of his driveway, it gave him great pleasure.

A special thanks to the Blueberry staff at Overlander for their compassionate care and kindness provided for dad/opa, it’s greatly appreciated.

Left to fondly remember Peter is his son Kim, granddaughters Tina, Annette and their families, as well as many friends.

There will be no service held at this time.
