September 1, 1940 – April 13, 2020
“We hold you close within our hearts, and there
you will remain, to walk with us throughout
our lives, until we meet again”.
With great sadness, the HILL family would like to announce the passing of their beloved Peter Harrison HILL.
A wonderful husband, father, grandpa, uncle and friend, was taken from us on April 13, 2020 in Maple Ridge, BC. Peter was born in Leicestershire England on September 1, 1940. He moved to Canada with his Family in 1957, and started his trade school in construction, which eventually guided him to become a committed business man within his community of Maple Ridge for over 48 years.
Peter had a great love for the community, sports (soccer) and business. But, first and foremost, he loved his family. Peter is survived by his loving wife, Hilda Hill of 55 years, son, Darren Hill, daughter, Kirsten Paterson, son-in-law, Clarke Paterson, sisters Jo and Janet, and his three grandchildren, Brooke Hill, Evan and Jayden Paterson.
Predeceased by his mother, Ivy and his father Joseph and his sisters Marjorie and Barbra. Peter called Maple Ridge home for 48 years and most people will remember him, and his wife, as owners of Maple Ridge Lighting. He also was a dedicated volunteer. He was an executive for many years for the M.R. Fair, Home Show, Chamber of Commerce, and Board of Variance. Peter’s true passion was soccer; he dedicated 30 years as a coach & executive board member for soccer clubs in Maple Ridge.
The HILL family invites you to visit the memorial page, dedicated lovingly to his 79 years at www.forevermissed.com/peterhill.
The family is hoping to host “a Celebration of Life” in June for family and friends. This will be announced on the memorial page listed above.
