FERREIRA, Peter Ferreira -
July 6, 1960 - September 19, 2023
On September 19, 2023, Peter David Ferreira passed away at the age of 63 after a courageous battle with cancer.
Beloved husband of Susan (nee Bowker), father of Kristina (Cory) and Julian, and stepfather to Lindsey (Mike) and Kyle (Jennifer).
Dear brother to Patricia (Patrick), Stephen (Michele), Susan (Stephen), Bernadette (Peter), Debra (Stuart), Stanley, and Alison (Scott).
He will also be deeply missed by his many nieces and nephews.
For 35 years, Peter worked in the aircraft industry as a repair and overhaul fitter. As a Lead Hand, he was always willing to provide guidance and advice to those he worked with.
At home, Peter was early to rise and begin working on different projects. He often joked that by nine in the morning the day was half done!
Peter enjoyed life’s simple pleasures: his first coffee in the early hours with his dog, Cooper; barbeques with his family, wood-working, fishing and most of all, travelling with his wife.
The Ferreira family would like to extend their sincere gratitude to the staff and volunteers at Margaret Bahen Hospice for the care, compassion and kindness they showed during Peter’s final weeks.
Family, friends, and co-workers are invited to share their memories of Peter during a Memorial Visitation on Tuesday, September 26th from 2:00 - 4:00 p.m. and 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. at ARMSTRONG FUNERAL HOME in Oshawa. A private family burial will take place at a later date.
Memorial donations may be made to Margaret Bahen Hospice in Newmarket, Ontario.
