Peter Kilgour Mackintosh

Peter Kilgour passed away peacefully on Wednesday, August 29, 2012, after a short illness, in Vernon Jubilee Hospital. Peter was born in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, but grew up in the Okanagan Valley. Throughout his life, he was an avid outdoorsman; enjoyed photography, hiking and fly fishing. He also had a passion for woodworking, winemaking and gardening, and a tremendous ability to repair anything mechanically or electrically if needed. Peter was always a very practical man. He had a distinguished career, working in broadcast communications for over 30 years. He was Engineering Manager for Moffat Broadcasting stations CKLG AM and CFOX FM throughout the 1960’s and 70’s at the peak of their success. He returned to his much-loved Okanagan in the late 70’s, working at CKXR radio, while he planned and built his dream home, at Eagle Bay, on Shuswap Lake. Peter’s expanded family includes 3 sons, Michael, James (Laura) and Ian (Holly) by first wife Pamela (deceased). He was re-married to his loving wife Mary in 1988, whose family warmly welcomed him, including Jack (Lisa), Helena (Rick), and Ingrid. Together, Mary and Peter have 14 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren. Peter was quiet and thoughtful, but was gifted with a clever sense of humour. He was quick to make a joke and enjoyed teasing his daughters-in-law. He had a capacity to make the people he cared about feel very special. He was a regular volunteer to his church groups at St Martins (North Vancouver), and Eagle Bay, in support of their service clubs. A memorial service will be held at 2:00 PM on Saturday, September 15, 2012 at the Eagle Bay Community Church (Eagle Bay Road). A reception will follow with refreshments in the Eagle Bay Hall. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made directly to Eagle Bay Community Church (4802 Eagle Bay Road, Eagle Bay, BC V0E 1T0) or to Vernon Jubilee Hospital (2101 32nd Street, Vernon, BC V1T 5L2.
