It is with great sadness that the family announces the passing of Peter Grant Reynolds on Tuesday, February 14, 2023, age 77 years.
Peter is survived by Sally (nee Stirton), his cherished wife of 55 years; his son, Michael (Vicky); and his grandchildren, Brayden and Michaella. Dear son of the late Howard and Norah Reynolds (nee Maunders). Peter is also survived by his brothers Tony Reynolds (Rachel) of Comox, BC and Barrie Reynolds (Rita) of Scarborough, ON, brother-in-law Edward (Ted) Stirton (Deb) of Okotoks, AB, and Audrey Stirton of St. Albert, AB. Peter will be greatly missed by his many nieces and nephews.
Peter was predeceased by his brother, Michael (Katherine).
Peter worked for many years as an ENG Editor for CBC. He retired in 2000 and kept in touch with some of his former coworkers. Never one to be idle, Peter began working for Lee Valley where he shared his love of woodworking by instructing scroll saw classes. After leaving Lee Valley, Peter delivered internal mail for his Coop, Sarcee Meadows, where he and his beloved wife lived for 51 years. It was not uncommon for members to be met with a smiling face or short chat while Peter walked his route. In his last summer of delivering mail, Peter displayed his youthful vigor, smiling ear to ear, while scooting around the complex delivering mail on his new electric scooter.
Peter had a wonderful sense of humour and those who knew him can recollect many stories of fun and laughs they had together. He had an insatiable thirst for knowledge. He was an avid woodworker and photographer. He kept up to date with all the new fad gadgets and was known as a gadget guy to many. Proving you are never too old to learn, he acquired his drone pilot’s license at the age of 73 to enable him to fly his drone, as well as learning how to make things with his 3D printer.
A Celebration of Peter’s Life will be held at the Glamorgan Community Association (4207 41 Ave SW, Calgary, AB T3E 1G2) on March 24, 2023, from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. All those who knew Peter and his family are welcome to attend. Condolences, memories, and photos can also be shared and viewed here.
