Peter Whitworth

June 11, 1931 - June 17, 2017

The family of T. Peter Whitworth sadly announces his passing on June 17, 2017. Peter is survived by Sandra, his loving wife and partner, his children Stephen, Elisa, Nancy (Tom), and Christopher; and grandchildren Jeremy, Faith, and Alexander, plus nieces and nephews. Peter was predeceased by his father Thomas, mother Marjorie, his sister Barbara, and his brother-in-law Don.

Peter was a consummate professional who loved his craft: a common man with an uncommon talent. His career as an optician on Vaughn Street spanned an incredible fifty two years. His clientele became family over the decades as he watched the children he worked with grow, and then bring in their own children, who in turn are bringing in their babies for service. He was loved by so many and will be sorely missed.

The family would like to thank the staff at the Grace Hospital and a special thanks to Reverend Paul Johnson for his support.

In keeping with Peter’s wishes, cremation has taken place and there will be no formal service. A private ceremony will take place at a later date.
