Peter GEISSLER

GEISSLER, Peter Rudolph. Peter Rudolph Geissler of Abbotsford, passed away peacefully on February 13, 2014. He is survived by: his best friend, soul mate and love of his life, Cheryl, daughters Megan Little, Nicole Geissler (Kevin Burk) and son Scott Geissler (Christie), 7 grandchildren: Hannah Little, Telaya Geissler, Ethan Little, Kylee Geissler, Adam Burk, Ryder Geissler, and Andrew Burk, brother Alfred Geissler (Susan), sister Marianne Steiner (Joe), as well as many extended family members and cherished friends. He was predeceased by his sister Christel and his parents Rudolph and Margarete Geissler. Peter was born June 12, 1946 in Vanderhoof, BC. He lived in Lejac, Prince Rupert, Nanaimo and Lantzville, BC while growing up. Peter took up carpentry as his trade of choice in 1966 and never looked back. Peter married his soul mate in 1971 and in 1973 they moved to Prince George where they began their new lives, working together in the construction industry. Here they made lifelong friends and their family grew. In 1986 Peter moved his family to Abbotsford where they have resided ever since. From building houses, to cabinetry, to furniture and even wooden locks and safes, Peter’s attention to the details and need for ‘doing it well’ was a trademark he stood by. He was a proud supporter of Girl Guides of Canada over the years, from working on floats for the Canada Day Parade, to building cabins and repairing roofs at the local camp, to making thank you lanterns for guiders. Peter could even sell cookies with the best of them! Peter’s greatest joy was when he was surrounded by his children and grandchildren, carving pumpkins, decorating gingerbread, reading stories, playing games, picnicking, and canoeing.
