THORNTON, Peter Kenneth November 15, 1928 - March 6, 2011 Peter Thornton passed on quietly on March 6, 2011 at Dufferin Place Nursing Home in Nanaimo, BC.

He is survived by his wife Emily and their children, Philip Neil and Valerie Gaye, grandchildren Matthew, Carly, Joshua, and Emma in Canada, and many extended family members in England and Wales. A gathering to celebrate Peter's life will be planned for September 2011, to be held in Nanaimo, BC. (Anyone wishing to attend please contact Philip by email firstname.lastname@example.org).
