ODELL, Peter Gordon - Peter passed away too young on January 2, 2013 from lymphoma at the age of 57. Beloved husband of Jane Bonsteel and devoted and loving father of Evan and Norah. Son of Iva (Wish) Odell of Toronto, brother of Lee Purves of Moncton, nephew of Huntley and Jan Wishart of Fredericton. Predeceased by his father, Gordon. Peter will also be greatly missed by the extended Odell, Wishart and Bonsteel families. Peter graduated from University of Toronto Schools and Western University. He joined the Xerox Research Centre of Canada in 1978 and enjoyed a long and rewarding career in chemistry research with over 100 patents to his name. He was happiest on his bike, his skis or especially in a canoe. A skilled white water paddler, he led his family on many wonderful wilderness adventures throughout Canada. Peter spent the last 16 months in turbulent waters, but he has reached a peaceful eddy now. Visitation will be held at Glen Oaks Memorial Chapel and Reception Centre, 3164 Ninth Line, Oakville on Thursday, January 10th from 7 to 9 p.m. A celebration of Peter's life will be held at the same location on Friday, January 11, 2013 at 11 a.m. If desired, donations in Peter's memory may be made to Frontier College or Ontario Nature.
