In Loving Memory
Robert Samuel Peters
Rob Peters passed peacefully on the evening of December 27, 2022 in the company of six of his closest loved ones. He touched the lives of many in his 67 years, and left a legacy of three loving children and many grand-dogs. His family will remember him for his hard-working, optimistic, welcoming and sometimes mischievous nature.
Rob was known for making friends with all types of people, everywhere he went. He helped people and his community in much of his spare time, including through volunteer positions with the City of Surrey Emergency Response Team, Surrey Parks, and City of Surrey Special Events such as Fusion Fest, Canada Day and Party for the Planet. He would support seniors by driving them to appointments and helping them with errands through the Better at Home Program. He also volunteered at the Langley Food Bank and prepared meals at Salvation Army’s Gateway of Hope for the homeless and for the Meals on Wheels Program.
Rob was a talented and artistic man who won awards for his paintings in his younger years and became a skilled woodworker and floor-layer who used these skills to support his family. He was always working on creative renovations of their family home which had open doors for friends and animals in need throughout the years.
Rob enthusiastically supported his three kid’s talents, hobbies and passions, especially their love of animals. He welcomed all the rescue animals they brought home from their childhood to adult years, including many dogs, cats, birds, hamsters, rats, injured wildlife and an iguana named Bobo. He had a very sensitive nature and instilled compassion for all life into the lives of his children who now carry on his legacy of service in their communities by supporting animal rescue societies, volunteering at the local fire hall, and working to protect wilderness for future generations through the Valhalla Wilderness Society and other organizations.
Rob’s down-to-earth attitude and sense of humor will live on through the many memories, especially those made at their family cabin which nurtured a connection to nature in his family. His life continues through the many ways in which he influenced the ones who still love him dearly.
