Peter Godfrey Rich

Peter Godfrey Rich

It is with sadness that we announce the passing  of Peter Godfrey Rich, a neighbour and friend. He passed  away  peacefully at  Cerwydden  Place  on Nov. 29, 2017.

Peter was predeceased by his parents, Frank and Katherine Rich, and his brother Michael.

Never married, Peter was our neighbour for 25 years. A quiet, kind  and gentle man, Peter was born  in Toronto, and moved  to  Victoria  with his family. He lived and worked in Toronto and Victoria, and had some interesting jobs, a lighthouse keeper on the west coast of BC, being one of them.

At home he loved to tend to his dahlias, and had a couple of hobbies that were somewhat opposite in nature; one being his love of classical music, and the other his interest in weight lifting. Often, we could hear Beethoven or Brahms playing while he worked out in his extensively outfitted basement gym. We enjoyed the talks that we had with Peter over the years, and will miss our conversations and his gentlemanly presence.

We would like to thank Dovehill staff, and most recently,  the  Cerwydden staff  for the  loving and kind care they provided Peter.

Peter will be laid to rest with his family at Royal Oak Cemetery, Victoria.
