Peter Quiring passed in his sleep at age 79 on December 1st, 2021. Peter worked for PCS Cory for 35 years as a journeyman welder and instructor of the trade. Peter loved camping, fishing, boating and life in general. When Peter retired and was able to afford to buy a RV, he immediately took it up to Delaronde Lake and left it parked there. Peter was more at peace when he was at the lake from the May long weekend to Labour Day weekend. When he was out on his boat fishing, he didn’t mind if he caught a fish or not, what he loved was the peacefulness of the lake. The only time he would reluctantly return to the city was for medical appointments. Peter was also a fantastic cook, he would notify his family when Zumma borscht was being served that day. All the family would gather to consume his Zumma borscht with gusto.
Peter also had many friends in the city as well at the lake. A few of his work buddies also had units at the lake and he liked nothing more then to get together with them and reminisce about the job or the tricks they played on each other or other crew members or see who can out BS the other.
Peter was predeceased by his wife, Marie (Vandale), his parents, Cornelius Quiring and Justina (Martins), his favourite sister in law, Bonnie (Jim) Vandale and longtime (since childhood) friend and brother in law, John Vandale.
Peter is survived by his four children, Shayne (Pauline), Annette (Aubrey) Cuthill, Tracy Quiring (Ron Taylor) and Angela Quiring. Peter had 9 grandchildren and 17 plus great grandchildren and his sister, Chris Harvie as well as niece, Patricia Vandale and nephew, Dwayne Vandale.
My condolences to his sister, Christine Harvie. You, Peter and I were friends for over 60 some years. I loved it when we got together and rememinisce about our teen age years. We had many laughs about the antics we use to get into.
To Shayne, Annette, Tracy and Angela – I’ve known all you kids since you were just a twinkle in your fathers eyes. My condolences to you all for the loss of your father.
Our deepest condolences to Pete’s family. We both have great memories of him when we were teenagers going over to visit him and Marie. He was such a card. He will be missed.
I worked with Peter at PCS Cory for a number of years. Great welder and later enjoyed his company out at Delaronde Lake. I will have no one to visit during my walks around the camp site or take some fillets to in case he was out he was a great guy to sit and have a chat with will miss you pal rest in peace Ty.
To the Quiring family’s 💖 ..
I’ve been a part of your family for 44 years your parents quickly became my 2nd once .. I have many memories of hanging at the Quiring home where I believe I did more dishes there then I did at home .. your parents always had an ear for me and if I needed some advice they always let me know what they thought was best for me xo .. its always a sad feeling when we loose someone we love but it gives me great comfort that those two love birds are reunited and are back holding hands and looking at each other with the love we all got to witness in life ..
May all you guys know the love I have for this family is endless and I pray you find some kind of comfort knowing you have many friends and family’s who are thinking of you at this difficult time .. rest in peace my dear Peter 🙏
