PETER CAMPBELL KINNEAR
February 9, 1954 - April 1, 2020
Peter Kinnear was born to Bill and Nettie Kinnear in Coleman, Alberta and he passed away at the age of 66 in Bellevue, Alberta.
Peter loved everything about the small-town atmosphere of the Crowsnest Pass and especially the outdoor pursuits the Pass offered. He loved downhill skiing, hiking and biking, gardening, and music - especially Bob Dylan. Summers were spent on family road trips camping in his beloved VW camper vans, and winters were spent skiing. The ‘boys’ ski trips to Jackson Hole and Whistler were epic. He graduated from the University of Calgary in Geography, and had an encyclopedic memory for trivia and more important topics. Peter was proud of his career in natural resource planning and regulatory affairs that started with the Alberta government and progressed to the Alberta legislature, ERCB, Nova Scotia Power and Canadian Natural Resources. His was life well-lived and he will remain with us in precious memories.
Peter is survived by his sons, Stuart (Amanda) and Fraser Kinnear; his grandson, William; his former wife, Patricia; his sisters, Janice (Bob) Reeve of Coleman and Randy Pierzchala of Golden BC; as well as many nephews, nieces, cousins and friends.
A Memorial Service honouring Peter’s life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations will be gratefully accepted by the Heart and Stroke Foundation (www.heartandstroke.ca). Condolences may be registered at www.fantinsfuneralchapel.ca.
