A lifetime resident of Fernie, 74 year old Peter Jurczak, passed away at the Elk Valley Hospital on Friday, April 21, 2017.

Peter is survived by his wife Roberta, children Russell, Robyn and Wesley Curry, and nephews Jim, Jack, and John (Birgit) Mindek with their children Stephie and Ben. He was predeceased by his parents, brothers Joe and Mike Jurczak and his sister, Mary Mindek.

In 2007, Peter retired from Teck Coal (Elkview) and spent his time enjoying favorite activities; camping with family and friends at Englishman Creek, fishing, hunting, carpentry, picking blueberries, and riding his quad. Always ready for a chat with neighbors, Peter could be seen out puttering, or around town collecting bottles. A friend to many, a stranger to none, Peter will be missed.
