May 31, 1933 – June 29, 2020
at the age of 87 years:
We are sad to announce that Peter Niessen passed away peacefully on June 29, 2020 in Sorrento, BC at the age of 87. He was born May 31, 1933 in the Ukraine and came to Canada in 1948 where he became a Canadian citizen on December 22, 1960.
He leaves behind Susie, his loving wife of 63 years, his children Gary (Debbie), Greg (Laura), Janet (Dave), 4 grandchildren, and 4 great grandchildren.
He worked at Ocean Construction in Vancouver for 38 years. He and Susie retired to the Shuswap where they became involved in the community and church, where they made many friends. He enjoyed bowling, fishing, hunting, and camping.
A memorial service with family and friends will be held in the future. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to The Evangelical Free church in Sorrento.
