Obituary of Peter H. Epp

Epp, Peter H.

Passed away on Thursday, April 11th, 2019. Beloved husband of Marie (Peters). Loving father of Susan Epp, Dan Epp, the late Ken Epp (2010)(Joan), Ron Epp (Kathy), and Edwin Epp (Jodi). Loving grandfather of Matthew Epp, Joshua Epp (Jacklyn), Mikaele Epp (Keith), Kevin Epp (Emma), Elyse Epp, Jessica Epp, Kody Epp, Braeden Epp, and great grandfather of Lauren O'Bright. Dear brother of the late Elizabeth Reimer (late John) late Jacob Epp (late Maria), late Mika Rollgaiser (late Alex), late Anna Janzen (late Walter), late Margaret Thiessen (late George), late Heinrich Epp. Survived by many nieces and nephews. Peter's whole life revolved around farming. He took great pride and care in growing a bountiful harvest. His wife Marie, a former teacher, adapted well to this new lifestyle and they worked side by side until the end. He was a wonderful mentor to his children and grandchildren and taught them the value of hard work and a job well done. Retirement was always in the distant future. Peter strongly believed in giving back to the community that had encouraged and supported him when he arrived in Canada from the Ukraine in 1947. He was a dedicated servant to the church, agricultural industry, the local hospital and UMEI. He always kept a finger on the pulse of the current political climate. His philosophy was to improve the lot of the farmer and the local community. He will be missed, but the groundwork he has laid will be continued with the next generation. He will be in our hearts and lives in every memory we have of him. We will miss him everyday, but will draw from the memory of his strength and never ending love for family and friends. Visiting at the Reid Funeral Home and Reception Centre, 14 Russell Street, Leamington (519-326-2631) on Monday 2-5 and 7-9 pm. Celebration of Peter's life will be held at the North Leamington United Mennonite Church, 6th Concession, Leamington on Tuesday, April 16, 2019 at 11 am.
