Hans Peter Hansen

July 19, 1923 - August 7, 2017


Hans Peter Hansen, 94, of Duncan, died August 7, 2017.  Peter was born July 19, 1923 in Denmark and immigrated to Canada in 1949 at the age of 26.  Peter worked on several farms in the area as well as construction jobs and in the logging industry.  He enjoyed hunting and fishing with grandchildren, either from his cabin in Valemont, B.C. or simply spending the day in Maple Bay near Duncan.

However, his real passion was his garden.  Peter grew a variety of vegetables and fruit, but his specialty was potatoes.  He generously shared his bounty with friends and neighbors whenever possible.  This was natural to him as he treasured their company and friendship.  He was known as a warm and friendly man, and a great story teller.

Peter was preceded in death by his loving friend and partner, Anna Hansen.  He is survived by his niece, Anne Marie Jorgensen (Knud Erik), and her children.  He also leaves behind Anna’s two daughters; Karin Billings of Chula Vista, California and Lissi Hemstalk of Sechelt, B. C., five grandchildren; Rocky (Sherry),  Vicki (Johnny),   Danny (Darla),  Jim (Ruth), and Debbie (Manuel), nine great- grandchildren; Mindy, Kristy, Candice, Therin, Jenna-May, Zaena,  Zachariah, Dean and Vivian,  and five great -great—grandchildren.

RIP my friend. You always had a can of Coke and a good story for me when I pulled out your trash can every Tuesday. No one grew potatoes like you. You will be missed.

From: Ken Pomeroy

Peter was and will always be the nicest man in Duncan. His stories, thoughtfulness and honesty made him the man we all would strive to be. I am more than proud to know Peter thought of me as his son. I can only say one word to my best friend, “Sköl” and we will toast again one day my brother.
