Knippel, Peter Steffen
June 11, 1930 – March 28, 2019
Beloved husband and partner of Joan Johnston, devoted Pops to Steffen (Cristina), Michael (Manon), Kathryn and Peter. Special friend of Kennedy (Dania) and Martin (Roxanne). Adored Opa of Donna, Andrew, Justin, Kyle, Zachary, Sophie, Olivier, Nicholas, Abigail and Murphy. Joyful great Opa of Daisy, Delilah, Logan, Wesley & Derek. After a full and interesting life, Peter leaves us his legacy – his entrepreneurial spirit and his love of creating beauty in his gardens – Peter so enjoyed his career and cherished the relationships with his staff, customers and suppliers. Peter immigrated to Canada in 1953. Peter is predeceased by his parents and siblings in Germany, and the mother of his children, Sue Potvin. A proud Canadian, Peter followed his passions – family, hard work, travel, moose hunting, and special friendships. Peter’s dry sense of humour was one of a kind and he will be affectionately remembered for his playful and funny exchanges of teasing remarks.
