FERNIE BOY KILLED IN ACTION

March 9, 1945

Free Press Files

In last week’s Free Press we announced that Mrs. Helen Stefak had received word that her son, Pte. Peter Stefak was missing. A further telegram this week gave the sad news that he had been killed in action.

Peter Stefak was a well known Fernie boy having spent all his life here. He has been over seas for about a year.

The list of our lads who have given their lives for their country is steadily growing. Mrs. Stefak and family have the heartfelt sympathy of the whole community.
