Obituary

On Tuesday February 5, 2019 at the La Verendrye Hospital, Fort Frances, Ontario, Peter Landry of Barwick, Ontario, passed away suddenly at the age of 76.

Peter was born on April 19, 1942 in Pinewood, Ontario to Hector and Irene (nee Gouliquer) Landry. As a child, his family moved often because of work. Among the places he lived were Atikokan, Ontario, Gimli, Manitoba, and Alberni, BC. As a youth, he helped build the South Saskatchewan Dam for a number of years. He was united in marriage to Joanne Wilkins on March 19, 1966 in Atikokan, ON. They moved to Dunblane, Sask., where Peter helped build the South Saskatchewan Dam for a few more months. Joanne did not like the prairie, so they soon moved to Ear Falls, ON, and then on to Ignace, ON where they remained for 25 years. In 1998 they moved to Barwick.

Over the years Peter operated heavy equipment, drove truck and tour buses. He enjoyed tinkering with mechanics. Peter always took time to visit with family and friends, often reminiscing about the early years.

His devoted care for Joanne was beautiful to see. Peter enjoyed helping people, whether it was keeping the score board at the baseball diamond, or doing errands for his friends.

He will be greatly missed by his brother Tom (Wendy), and many members of the Landry family, especially his nephews Jason Josh,Scott, Ricky and niece Joan and the Gouliquer and Wilkins families, as well as his adopted family, the Martin’s.

Peter was predeceased by his wife Joanne (2015), his parents Hector and Irene Landry, and his brother Blaine Landry, and nephew Matt..

If desired memorial donations may be made in Peter's memory to the charity of your choice.

A time of fellowship will be held on Monday 2-4 p.m. at Northridge Funeral Home, funeral services will be announced in the spring at a later date.

One day coming home from a visit to the dentist Uncle Pete stopped in CMCO Publications like he did frequently. He had something to bring over. I happened to be the only one around right then. He began telling me all about what needed to be done with his teeth. It was looking very big to him and he mentioned how costly it would be. Then he sort of mentioned how if nothing gets done with his has bad teeth it could eventually affect his health further. He was thinking that he should just die, no one would miss him anyway. I reminded him of a message we had just heard at church about our thoughts just the evening or so before and also assured him that there would be a lot of people that would miss him. He thought about that some and then agreed with me that that would likely be the case. Then he also mentioned you know that is why I love you all so much. It was special every time he came for a visit at our place as well. We have many fond memories but we are thankful that all his suffering is over and he is at peace and at home with God, his Father. May you as family find comfort in all the good memories you have of Uncle Pete.
