ZMURCHYK PETER MICHAEL GERARDES ZMURCHYK, of Lethbridge, beloved husband of Deone Zmurchyk, passed away on Sunday, September 3, 2023 at the age of 73 years, with the love of his life by his side.
Besides his loving wife, Deone, Peter is survived by his son John (Roanna) Zmurchyk; and grandsons: Peter (Colby), Brody (Bradi), Caleb (Ayla), John (Karli), Dylan, and Corby (A.K.A Rooster). He was also survived by his brother Raymond and mother-in-law Mildred Beck.
He was predeceased by his daughter, Jennifer; parents, Pete and Frances; and father-in-law Vern Beck.
Peter was born in Lethbridge in 1950. After spending his childhood and early adulthood helping his dad on the dairy farm west of Lethbridge, he spent a short time driving truck, then he settled into a long career at ADRI (now CFIA), where he would tend to all the farm work at the Research facility in the river bottom. He spent his retirement years in a rather large garden, where he would become well known for his quality produce; he was most proud of his beautiful garlic.
