CHURCH, Harold Peter
March 22, 1926 to March 27, 2008.
Peter's earthly journey came to an end five days after his 82nd birthday. Peter was born in Sao Paulo, Brasil, to Harold F.H. CHURCH and Hilda H. (née OWERS.) He was predeceased by his parents and brother Ian E.H.
Peter, a graduate of the New York School of Interior Design, dedicated his life to raising interior design standards. He was proud that the only interiors he hadn't worked on were those of a rail coach and a plane. Peter lived and worked in Brasil, England, New York, and Ontario before settling in Vancouver. His clients, tradespeople, and Friends all became intertwined to become an extended family.
Peter was a frequent traveler to many countries and enjoyed learning about different cultures and languages. He also had an appetite for food from all corners of the world. He was passionate about art, books, movies, music, and theatre. He held very strong views on a wide range of subjects -- and was never shy about sharing these views.
Peter's journey had recently become quite difficult as he bravely faced a series of illnesses. His courageous struggle was assisted by too many people to mention individually. Instead, we wish to thank the good people at Vancouver General Hospital (the Emergency Room, Medical Assessment Unit, Ward 11A (ACE), and Palliative services), the Pacific Spirit Community Health Centre (Home Hospice Program), and the British Columbia Ambulance Service for providing outstanding care in difficult circumstances.
Peter will be remembered at a memorial service to be held at Saint Mary's Kerrisdale, 2490 West 37th Avenue, Vancouver, at 2 p.m. on Friday, May 2. A Celebration of his life and work will immediately follow the memorial service. Please contact 604-267-6334 or email (CelebratePeter@shaw.ca) for additional information.
In lieu of flowers, people are asked to take a friend for lunch, in memory of Peter.
We have lost a true gentleman.
