John Peter passed away on February 10, 2013 in Langley Memorial Hospital with his family by his side. He was born May 24, 1937 to the late Captain Peter and Enid Rorvik in the Alberni Valley.
The Guest Book is expired.
He is predeceased by his wife of 48 years, Shirl Rorvik.
He is survived by his companion Wendy Littlewood; Sons: Randy (Angie), Russ (Brenda), Chris (Aline); Grandchildren: Dawson, Malcolm, Conner, Jared and Melina; Sisters Frances (Kennedy), Thea (McCormick) and numerous nieces and nephews.
Our precious Dad, Papa John, brother and Unk enjoyed all things related to birds, animals, the outdoors, Okanagan fruit, his long career driving truck, and retiring to RV'ing as often as he could.
He attended Qualicum College Boys School and St. Michaels University School then took to his childhood dream career of the open road. He lived and raised his family for many years in Princeton, then relocated to Langley where he later retired.
Thank you to the doctors and staff @ Langley Memorial for taking such good care of him. A celebration of life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to a children's charity of your choice.
May the critters in his neighbourhood now wreak havoc.
