Peter Devries

1932 – 2015

My dear husband Peter, proud father and loving Grandpa Pete to our seven grandchildren, passed away peacefully at Crossroads Hospice in Port Moody on Good Friday, April 3, 2015. Peter was born and schooled in Edmonton Alberta. He began his career in the oilfields at the age of seventeen and at the time of his passing he was principal owner and president of Marine Plastics composite manufacturing and design in Langley. We married in 1957 and were blessed with three children. For many years now, travel, golf, and spending time at our retirement home at Queens Bay on Kootenay Lake, preferably with friends and family, were among his cherished pastimes. He was a gentleman in every sense of the word. Surviving him is his wife, Pat (Walgren) Devries, children Dawne Binley (Peter), Darrell Devries (Susan), and Lisa Rae Devries (Rand Wheating). Also surviving are loving grandchildren, Ryan, Allison and Kristen Binley, Hannah and Neil Devries and Jacob and Samuel Wheating. Peter was predeceased by his sister Jean Taylor and is survived by his brother Arthur deVries (Joyce). A Celebration of Life will take place at the Pitt Meadows Golf Club, 13615 Harris Road, Pitt Meadows B.C. on Sunday May 3rd at 1 p.m. Family, friends, and those who worked together with Peter are invited to attend.
