On Tuesday February 5, 2019 at the La Verendrye Hospital, Fort Frances, Ontario, Peter Landry of Barwick, Ontario, passed away suddenly at the age of 76.
Peter was born on April 19, 1942 in Pinewood, Ontario to Hector and Irene (nee Gouliquer) Landry. As a child, his family moved often because of work. Among the places he lived were Atikokan, Ontario, Gimli, Manitoba, and Alberni, BC. As a youth, he helped build the South Saskatchewan Dam for a number of years. He was united in marriage to Joanne Wilkins on March 19, 1966 in Atikokan, ON. They moved to Dunblane, Sask., where Peter helped build the South Saskatchewan Dam for a few more months. Joanne did not like the prairie, so they soon moved to Ear Falls, ON, and then on to Ignace, ON where they remained for 25 years. In 1998 they moved to Barwick.
Over the years Peter operated heavy equipment, drove truck and tour buses. He enjoyed tinkering with mechanics. Peter always took time to visit with family and friends, often reminiscing about the early years.
His devoted care for Joanne was beautiful to see. Peter enjoyed helping people, whether it was keeping the score board at the baseball diamond, or doing errands for his friends.
He will be greatly missed by his brother Tom (Wendy), and many members of the Landry family, especially his nephews Jason Josh,Scott, Ricky and niece Joan and the Gouliquer and Wilkins families, as well as his adopted family, the Martin’s.
Peter was predeceased by his wife Joanne (2015), his parents Hector and Irene Landry, and his brother Blaine Landry, and nephew Matt..
