Frederick “Slim” Gerald Peters passed away peacefully surrounded by family and friends on August 15, 2015 at Fraser Canyon Hospice at the age of 53. Slim was known for his selflessness and kindness of heart. He earned the respect and love of his family, co-workers and many lifelong friends. He was a goaltender for the Seabird Island Men’s Soccer Club. He was an avid sports fan and music lover with an incredible memory for stats and players in football, hockey and his favorite bands and music. He carried on the teachings of his Grandmother who taught him how to wind dry fish to provide for the family. He also loved sport fishing for salmon and halibut on the West coast. Trout fishing and duck hunting were lifelong endeavors. He was a high school graduate from Agassiz Secondary School. He was a Class C welder and held many certificates like First Aid. He worked primarily for Serpentine Cedar in Fort Langley and on the Coast. His presence will be missed but his spirit, smile, wit and laughter will be a comfort and a happy memory to us all.
