David Peat, aged 98, passed away peacefully on Thursday, March 7th at Heritage Place on Salt Spring Island with family present.

Born in 1925 in Portland Maine, he was the eldest child of David M. Peat and Elizabeth D. (Lochhead) Peat. After serving in the U.S. Navy in World War II he returned to McGill University in Montreal graduating in 1950 and worked in the pulp and paper industry in the New England states and across Canada before retiring to Salt Spring Island in 1989.

He was predeceased by his wife of forty-eight years Helen K. Peat. He leaves behind his sisters Janet, Margaret and Mary, sons Andrew and George (Liana), daughters Janet (Marcel) and Elizabeth, seven grandchildren and six great-grandchildren. A private service will be held at a later date with interment at St. Mary’s Anglican Church (Fulford).

Thanks to the staff at Lady Minto Hospital and Dr. Magda Leon for the care given our father and a special thanks to Ms. Sandi Muller and staff at Heritage Place – dad’s second home for the past four-and-a- half years.
