Peter COWHIG

COWHIG, Peter James aka Uncle Wonderful

May 2, 1950 – August 10, 2015


It is with deep sadness our family announces the passing of Peter Cowhig. Peter is survived by his daughter, Jasmine McNeil; grandchildren, Charley, Ben, and Georgia McNeil; as well as his mother, Jeannette Cowhig; sisters, Mary, Gemma, and Margaret; and brothers, John, Michael, and Paul. He revelled in the role of “Uncle Wonderful” to his many nieces and nephews. Although Peter’s career was in Real Estate, his passion was his family, fishing, film, and stage. He was often found on stage at Surrey Little Theatre and Langley Players, although he discovered his love of acting at Gallery 7 in Abbotsford. Peter grew up in Vancouver, but spent most of his adult years living, working, and playing in the Fraser Valley. He had a deep, enduring appreciation for nature. Not a day went by that he didn’t express his thankfulness, delight, and amazement at the natural beauty of where we live.

Rest in peace Peter. Forever your family we’ll be.
