Peter Shailes
Birth:  January 18, 1922
Death:  February 5, 2019

Peter Shailes, 97 years old from Princeton, Ontario, peacefully passed on Tuesday February 5, 2019 in the Ingersoll Hospital.


Peter was born on January 18, 1922 in Frome, Somerset England and immigrated to Canada when he was in his 50’s. Peter’s career was already well established in the UK and he was recruited to Canada due to his mechanical and engineering aptitude. He moved to Princeton in mid 1980’s and remained there for rest of his life until he moved into assisted care when he was 95.


His love for his homeland and the family and friends that lived there resulted in annual trips to the UK to visit and share in their lives. His passion for tinkering resulted in him being a mentor to many. His love of collecting often found him hunting for unique objects throughout the countryside in Canada and the UK.

He loved life, learning and the ocean. He also loved his family and friends dearly who will miss his wise words and wonderful sense of humour. 

His kind and gentle demeanour was often likened to Gandolf whose words seem to sum a life well lived, “A wizard is never late, nor is he early, he arrives precisely when he means to”

Arrangements

A celebration of Life for Peter will be held on Saturday March 16, 2019 from 2pm - 4 pm

at the Princeton United Church basement - 7 Elgin St. West , Princeton, Ontario
