John Peter McCrea

September 9, 1947 – September 8, 2020
On September 8, 2020 John Peter McCrea passed away after a long struggle with COPD. Peter left us the day before his 73rd Birthday.
Peter had a son from his first marriage named Ron. He met his wife, Janet in 1971 and together they had son Shane and daughter Echo.
Peter was born in Lima, Peru, September 9, 1947 and lived there until 1960 when he and his parents, Jack and Ann McCrea moved back to Canada for good. He lived in Castlegar, Sooke, Coquitlam, Mission and settled in Quesnel in 1978.
He worked as a Boilermaker until he was unable to anymore in 2002. He then retrained as a job site safety officer and did that until 2015.
He was very intelligent and had a sharp wit and sense of humor. He loved his family, many pets and always strived to learn new things his whole life.
A very special thank-you to Dr. Van Dyck and Fab Lelanc for all the care over the years. Also all the nursing staff that provided care and engaged with Peter and his teasing. You were the best parts of his days.
