Celebrating Peter's long and healthy life of 89 Years! Never took a prescription pill until the last few years! ...Hallelujah!!
Peter worked hard, crop and cattle farming with his brother Bill and nephew Barry on the family homestead, 5 miles east of Kamsack. Always gardening and eating the fruits of his labour!
Peter also had many pets that he enjoyed. Peter lived on the farm until he retired. Then moving to Kamsack to live and help his sister Magdalen (Peggy) after her health started to fail. He continued to love gardening throughout his life.
Peter's biggest love was for JESUS!! Peter's farm was always covered with Christian texts. What a role model, to his young Nieces and nephews! (whom he loved dearly and spoiled with *Pepsi) He was also ridiculed for this also, but Peter stood firm throughout his long faith journey with His Jesus!!
Peter's Christian walk grew in strength, and a shy timid man stood in front of church congregations sharing his memory verses (not short), sing songs and tell of GOOD Things GOD Was and Is Doing!! Peter loved JESUS until his last breath (singing praises with his two nieces, "Oh How I Love Jesus!", "Because He First Loved Me" in his hospital bed; eyes trying to open and mouth trying to move.) ...Peter is shouting his praises now, wide open!
Peter was predeceased by his parents; Jacob in 1968: Anna in 1984, sisters; Pearl Husak in 1944, Thea Kyba in 2014, Peggy Chypyha in 2015, Mary Moore in 2016, brothers Alex in 1921, Metro in 1935, Nick in 1936, and John in 2016.
Peter leaves to miss him, his brother Bill (Jean) Koreluk of Kamsack, SK, George Koreluk of Winnipeg, MB, sisters Katie Monita of Toronto, ON, and Carol D'Angelo of Sudbury, ON (along with many other nieces and nephews in Kamsack and across Canada.)
