Peter Edward Small

March 15, 1952 - February 10, 2023


Peter Edward Small, born March 15, 1952 in White Rock, BC, passed away peacefully at his Salt Spring Island home on February 10, 2023, in the loving care of his partner Karin.

From a young age Peter demonstrated an inquisitive mind constructing or deconstructing whatever came his way. He saw the potential in raw materials and had the ability to create functioning and beautifully crafted items. Peter spent many years in the White Rock area working as a finishing carpenter honing his skills with an eye for fine detail.

Peter’s curiosity led him to working on a cattle ranch in Hawaii, stints on commercial fishing boats, a caretaker on Russell Island, as well as varied experiences in carpentry, wood working and custom projects.

Peter had many long-time friends in the Salt Spring community who benefited from his helping hands or technical (free) advice.

He will be lovingly remembered and missed for his feisty spirit, insatiable quest to learn how things work or why they don’t, his love for his long-time partner Karin, his brothers: Jay, Chris and Matt, his extended family, friends and of course his beloved animals.

Heartfelt thanks to Dr. Ron Reznick and the medical staff at Lady Minto Hospital for their care and compassion for Peter. We are forever grateful.

A gathering to celebrate Peter’s life will be held at the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 92 on March 18, 2023, 12:30 – 3:00pm.
