Peter Plotnikoff – So sorry to hear of the passing of your beloved husband, father, father-in-law, grandfather, relative and also friend to many. Throughout his years as School District Bus Driver, he met many “kids/students” and had a genuine concern for their safety, but also general “well-being”. I recall him as a proud and loving father and grandfather who supported all the various activities of his family… and “youth” from our Community. May the great memories you cherish help you through accepting his passing and bring you comfort in knowing his legacy lives on.
– Sincerely, Corinne Postnikoff and family, Castlegar, BC – May 3, 2014
Peter Makeiff – Long will we remember Peter’s engaging smile, “twinkle in his eye”,great sense of humor, involvement in the community and performances with Choirs. What a delight to have heard him perform with his daughters during Festival 2013. We hope that his family and friends will draw some comfort from all the wonderful memories you have stored in your hearts. Sincerely, Corinne (Minnaert) Postnikoff and family
