McCARREY, Peter James
September 18, 1949 – July 17, 2014
After a lifetime battle with heart disease, cancer was too much and Peter passed July 17, 2014 at age 64 in Richmond, BC. He is greatly missed by his loving wife of 43 years, Marilynne and daughter Meredith. Predeceased by mother Dorothy, father Harold, and brother Paul of London, ON, Peter is survived by wife Marilynne, daughter Meredith (Darrell Fuller), Richmond, BC, nephew P. Michael McCarrey, Ariss, ON, "Grandpa Pete" to Ethan and Devin, and many friends and cousins in ON, BC, QC, and FL. Peter enjoyed many years in the Electronic Components business before suffering heart failure in 1990 and retired. After a cardiac arrest in 1998, he decided he had one more time around the track and enjoyed many hours among golfing buddies both at Quilchena and Greenacres, always managing to "sandbag" his way to the prize table. Wife and daughter were by his side until the end. In farewell, he said "I'll save you a stool, see you soon and bye for now". A Wake will be held Saturday, August 16, 2014 at the RiverRock Resort – Thompson Room, 8811 River Road, Richmond, BC from 2:00 - 4:00 p.m. with a 3:00 p.m. Toast to Peter. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Heart & Stroke Foundation of Canada in Peter's name.
