KUEHN, Horst Karl “Peter”
January 19, 1938 — August 22, 2021
Peter Kuehn arrived in the Okanagan by train at the age of 18, drawn by stories of the Wild West. After a life full of love, happiness and accomplishment, 65 years later, we lay him to rest.
Peter will be remembered as a gentleman, a leader, a businessman and intensely loyal to family and friends. His push-hard/work-hard attitude, healthy living, zest for life, support for others, and loving smile are just a few of his strong ways.
Peter’s generous spirit and commitment to fight for what you want in life and what is right was not just for his own life achievements but for the greater good – for family and friends, the community, our country and global issues.
Some of Peter’s interests included ballroom dancing, gardening, travelling and languages. He loved to spend time with his little dog Max; he also loved being in the company of his family and friends mostly by entertaining, celebrating and sharing in good conversation.
He is survived by his children: Heidi, Michael, and Shawn. He was predeceased by his daughter Tabitha. He was fondly loved by his grandchildren Charm & Chase and his great-grandchildren Juliet & Matteo.
Peter will be close to our hearts forever and greatly missed.
In lieu of flowers, please send your donations to Cops for Kids.
