Peter J. Blom(1947 - 2013)

Peter Johannes Blom passed away last week, and will be sorely missed by all those who knew him, including his sons Michael and Cameron, and daughter Callie. Peter will also be missed by all his siblings in Europe, Australia and Canada. Their diverse locations attest to his family's strong will for adventure. Originally born in Amersfoort, Netherlands, Peter moved to Australia in his early 20's, and after a few years relocated to Vancouver to ply his trade as a carpenter. His first wife Joy brought him Michael, and his second partner, Terri brought him Callie and Cameron. Peter's last few years were spent with Robin in North Vancouver. Peter recently relocated to Sechelt where he spent his last few months reconnecting with family and friends. A celebration of his life will be held at the home of his daughter's aunt on Friday Sept 20th, 378 East Keith Road in North Vancouver from 3 to 6 pm.
