Peter, George Reghenas

With loved ones by his side, Peter George Reghenas was summoned to his eternal rest at the East Kootenay Regional Hospital on Wednesday, February 25, 2015 at the age of 76.

Peter was born in Michel, BC and resided there until October 16, 1965 when he married “Candy” DiGeorgio. In May of 1968 they were blessed with their beautiful daughter Denise.

In 1954 Peter started his career in underground mining. Upon retiring from the local coal mine in Sparwood, he ventured up to Faro, Grand Cache and Cassiar until 1996. In 1997, Peter worked in Crawford Bay where a mining accident forced him into early retirement.

Peter loved to travel, whether it be overseas to Asia, Europe and several other countries, or just “across the line” to Kalispell, MT.

Peter loved music. He was the lead guitarist and played for many years with the band “The Lucky Dots”. Peter was also active with the Knights of Columbus, earning his 4th Degree and being the Grand Knight of the Fernie council many times over, and earning his 50 year pin.

Peter was blessed with 2 beautiful grandchildren. Danielle, born October 13, 1997 and Dalton, born June 13, 2000. His grandkids were the highlight of his life. The “go to Nono”, taking his grandkids wherever they wanted to or needed to go. It was not uncommon to see him with one or both of his kids.

We have been truly blessed to have him in our lives. He will be sadly missed each and every day.

Peter is survived by his wife of 49 years, Candy, his daughter Denise (Mark), grandchildren Danielle and Dalton (Dill), brothers Raymond (Pat) and Dennis (Ann) as well as many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his parents Rosie and Silvio Reghenas.
