Peter Kimball Thorp

June 1, 2016

Peter Kimball Thorp, founder, CEO, and Chairman of Churchill Mortgage Corporation, passed away peacefully June 1, 2016, under Hospice Care in Las Vegas, Nevada, where he and his beloved wife, Vivian, have recently retired.

Peter lived a full life as a scholar, U.S. naval officer, captain of Southern California's commercial real estate industry, and a loving husband and father. He was a strong, generous, compassionate man, and above all else, loved his family dearly. Peter loved spending every waking moment with his wife, discussing real estate with his sons, playing the piano, a glass of scotch with a good cigar, and was the self-proclaimed world champion of all games, especially cribbage. He will be remembered for giving to those in need and for giving it his all.

Mr. Thorp is survived by his four grown sons, Michael, Stephen, Jeffrey, and Daniel, his daughters-in-law, Claire, Stephanie and Beth, and six young grandchildren all of whom live in Southern California. He survived also by Vivian, his loving wife of the past sixteen years, and his stepson, Ryan Malabanan. Peter was pre-deceased by an older brother, Almus, Jr. and leaves behind his sister, Merry, who lives in Virginia. He is also survived by his nephew, Almus Thorp III, and his nieces, Rebecca & Sarah, and their respective families.
A private memorial service for immediate family and loved ones will be held. He will be buried at Green Hills Cemetery located at Palos Verdes Peninsula, where he felt most at home. Instead of sending flower, please contact Daniel Thorp at (949) 637-2909 for information on making a donation to a specific charity in Peter's honor.
