ROHATYN, Peter David
April 4, 1933 – Lampman, Saskatchewan
January 18, 2016 – Calgary, Alberta, Canada
Peter David Rohatyn of Cochrane,
beloved husband of Sandra, passed
away peacefully with family by his
side on January 18, 2016 at the age of
82 years in Calgary Alberta.
Born in Lampman, Saskatchewan,
Peter grew up with farming roots. His
parents immigrated from the Ukraine
in the early 1920s and raised Peter
and his 7 siblings on a homestead in rural Saskatchewan, near
Estevan. At the young age of 20, Peter began his Oil and Gas
career with Imperial Oil operating facilities near the family farm.
Eager and hard-working, Peter advanced quickly within the
operations at Imperial Oil with room for opportunity. In 1960,
Peter met the love of his life, Sandra, at a curling bonspiel, one
of his favorite pastimes. In 1968, they married in Estevan and
Peter accepted a new position to move to Peace River with
Imperial Oil to be responsible for automation of Rainbow Lake
and Zama Oilfields and lead pilot projects. With tremendous
experience and entrepreneurial spirit, Peter later ventured to
start a consulting company Rohatyn Oilfield Consulting
Services Ltd. In total, Peter worked in the industry for over
46 years. Peter's expertise did not end with consulting, he
was also involved in residential construction with his younger
brother Larry. Peter and Sandra later settled for retirement in
Cochrane, Alberta.
Peter was kind and caring - a devoted family man and husband.
He enjoyed making new friends and always greeted people
everywhere he went with his warm generous smile. He loved
the outdoors, exploring the countryside, vacationing in
Maui- always with his family close by. He also enjoyed long
scenic drives and playing his guitar. Passionate about
woodwork, Peter was gifted in many ways.
Peter will be forever cherished in the hearts of his loving family,
his true love Sandra of 56 years; his son Darren (Maureen) of
Peace River, Alberta; and his two daughters Sheri (Daniel)
Braun of Edmonton and Judy Rohatyn of Vancouver BC.
His treasured grandchildren were a source of great pride
and joy, Ryan and Ethan Rohatyn and baby Max Braun born
this Christmas.
Peter will be lovingly remembered and sadly missed by all that
knew him. His positivity and courage is a legacy to us all.
