June 20, 1935 – January 30, 2021

Peter was born to Joseph & Stella Wojcichowsky in Bonne Madone, SK on June 20, 1959. He was a part of a large family and had seven siblings.

Peter, better known as “Diesel Pete”, was employed by CN Railway prior to getting into the Oil & Gas industry where he then worked for Kaps Transport Ltd. Kaps is where he achieved the title of a ‘legend’, hauling on the Alaskan highway and then finally finishing his career with Lafarge, where he will be remembered as the #1 driver. Peter decided, unwillingly, that it was time to retire around 2014, creating a life, strong in love, by being primary caregiver to his beautiful wife Sophia, who passed in 2018.

Peter and Sophia met at Seba Beach, AB in 1956 and then married 3 years later on June 20, 1959. Their family grew with two beautiful children; Richard and Jacqueline.

Peter was a very enticing man who always had a twinkle in his eye and a chuckle in his belly. He will be remembered for his grin that would reach from ear to ear. If you were lucky enough to meet him, you know just how infectious that grin really was.

Peter will forever be remembered by his son, Richard (Sandy) Wojcichowsky and their children Casey (fiancé Brock Zagoruy), Megan, Brooke and Justin and by his daughter, Jacqueline Wojcichowsky and his grand puppies. Peter is also survived by his sisters, Anne Michayluk, Katie Taylor and Mary Hargraves; brothers, Steve (Gloria), Orest (MaryAnn) and Eddie (Evelyn); as well as numerous extended family and friends.

Peter was predeceased by his loving wife of 61 years, Sophia; his parents, Joseph & Stella; brother, Boris (Judy); and brothers in law, Walter Michayluk and Harold Taylor.
