WOLLNER, Peter R. "Pete" December 30, 1926 - July 19, 2016 It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Pete, father, grandfather and great-grandfather, of Victoria, BC, after a courageous battle with cancer. He was predeceased by his parents Valentine and Margaret Wollner, brothers Leo and Frank, and wife Grace. He will be fondly remembered by his Special Friend Margaret, daughter Joanne (David), grandsons Pat (Colleen), Darin (Joanna), and great grandchildren Benjamin & Lalena, sisters Florence, Frances, Freda and sisters-in-law Josie and Josephine, many nieces and nephews and friends. Pete had many careers over the years- barber, bulk fuel agent, farmer, crop insurance adjuster, was asked to manage the Crop Insurance Dept. in Regina until retirement. When asked what he was able to fix, his response was "Yes!", explaining that he was able to fix anything he attempted. Pete was an avid baseball fan and spent many years umping local baseball. He was an excellent Duplicate Bridge player reaching status of Gold Lifemaster. Other hobbies included water skiing and bowling. He was a Third Degree Knight. We would like to thank the staff and residents of 'The Wellesley' of Victoria for all the kindness shown to Pete over the years. A big thank you to the staff and volunteers at Victoria Hospice for their great care. Thank you to Dr. George Urban and staff for such good care for the last 29 years. Funeral Mass to take place Friday July 29, 2016 at 1:00 pm at Our Lady Star of the Sea Parish Church in Belmont Park, 595 Galiano Ave., Victoria, BC. Fellowship and remembrances following Mass at Sands Funeral Chapel, 317 Goldstream Ave, Colwood. In lieu of flowers please donate to the Canadian Cancer Society or the Canadian Diabetes Association.

Joanne & David, so sorry that Pete had to leave this planet. Nobody can replace one's "Big Brother!" I too have one of his step stools (yes, I too am short!) and think of him every time I see/use it. I have spent some really nice times with Grace & Pete in Victoria and at my place here. I suppose he's now playing Bridge with his brothers and Pop! He gifted me with my very first really beautiful doll! He will be fondly remembered & missed.

Joanne & David, so sorry that Pete had to leave this planet. No one can take the place of one's "Big Bother!" I too have one of his step stools (yes, I too am short!) I think of him every time I see/use it. I spent some nice times with Grace & Pete in Victoria and in my home here. I suppose he's up there playing Bridge with his brothers and Pop! He gifted me with my first really pretty doll! He will always be fondly remembered.

Joanne, We miss you dad a lot. He was so funny, kind and giving. The Bridge community is holding an In Memoriam Open Game tomorrow January 7, at Monterey Bridge Club, where we will be honouring the 13 loved ones we have lost in 2016. I'm sure they're all up there playing bridge!

Condolences to Joanne and David on the passing of Pete. He will be missed. Jim and I have many happy memories of bowling with Pete and the good visits on the drives to Duncan.
Pete made good, solid stairs for the use of our crawl space, we say a word of thanks to him whenever we use these stairs.

Joanne I was saddened to learn of your Dad's passing. I will always remember him as a kind and caring person. I remember when he use to make little step stools for all the short ladies in the Parish. I still have mine and think of Pete every time I use mine.
