    History Obituary - The afternoon of October 3, 2011, Peter Loewen slipped peacefully into the waiting arms of his Lord. He passed away in the palliative care ward at the Riverview Health Center. He was 86.
    Peter is survived by his loving wife, Caroline, of Winnipeg, Manitoba, as well as their children and grandchildren, Rita and husband Wendell Kroeker, Matthew (Kirsten, Haley and Annika), Dalen (Bonnie), Tyson (Diane, Karen and Aurelia), and Amy; Sylvia and son, Ben; Ralph and wife Cindy, Pavel, Arthur and Marissa; Lyle and wife Paula, Brenlee (Joash), Kara (Tim), and Jordan; Stewart and wife Heather, Dawson and Jenna; Greg and wife Cathie, Mackenzie, Kaelee and Aaron. Peter was predeceased by his parents, Isaac and Elizabeth, brothers Leonard (in childhood) and George, and sister Mary Friesen. He grew up in Giroux and quit school at 14 to help on the family farm. After their marriage on May 1, 1954, Peter and Caroline moved to the Interlake, north of Riverton. They farmed and spent winters in the bush running a sawmill.
    In 1962, Peter bought his first mobile feed mill and in 1969 he built Scientific Feed in Arborg. In later years, he spent many days helping his sons and son-in-law on their farming operations. Five years ago Dad and Mom moved to Winnipeg, where they became members of the Braeside EMC Church. Dad was honored to have been asked to serve on the missions committee.
    Dad loved people. Some of his happiest days were spent driving his motorboat and teaching numerous people how to water-ski. He loved meeting new people. He and Mom did a lot of traveling – to Israel, Europe, South America, Caribbean and cruising. Their latest trip was to a granddaughter’s wedding in Mexico this past January. Dad’s greatest joy came from giving away Scriptures. In recent years, he went on many “trips north” to distribute Lifelight New Testaments. Dad wanted everyone to know the Lord. He spent hours praying and has witnessed many a changed life. Dad also loved to share stories of his Scripture distribution trips.
    The viewing is at Birchwood Funeral Chapel, 150 Penfeld Dr., Steinbach on Thursday, Oct 6, at 7:00 p.m. The memorial service will be held on Friday, Oct 7, at 2:00 p.m. at Braeside Evangelical Mennonite Church in Winnipeg – 1011 Munroe Ave.
    In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Canadian LifeLight Ministries Inc, 362 Main St, Box 4904, Steinbach, MB R5G 1R5.
