GOETZ, Peter Henry (1917-2007)
Beloved dad, grandpa and great-grandpa, passed away on Tuesday, August 28, 2007 just shy of his 90th birthday. He was born on September 8, 1917, in Slavgorod, Russia, where he was raised on a collective farm by his parents, Henry and Justina. He immigrated to Canada in 1929 along with his parents and his brother Henry. His baby brother Siegfried was born during the ocean voyage to Quebec City. The family then settled in the Kitchener-Waterloo area. Peter attended Kitchener Collegiate Institute where he met his future wife, Helena WARKENTIN. In his thirties, Peter pursued an accounting career with B.F. Goodrich. He was, however, an avid sportsman, becoming recognized as a 'scratch' golfer at the Westmount Golf and Country Club. His passion for the arts eventually eclipsed his interest in sports. By attending Saturday morning classes at Waterloo College, now Wilfred Laurier University and joining the Kitchener-Waterloo Society of Artists in 1946, Peter developed his artistic skills. He also added a daughter Jean Margot to the family in 1946 and a son, Peter Andrew in 1949. Peter was elected to the Canadian Society of Painters in Watercolour in 1960 and the Ontario Society of Artists in 1963. Exhibitions include the National Gallery, Ottawa; the Rotunda Gallery, London, England; La Scala Gallery, Florence, Italy the Galleria International, New York City and the Art Gallery of Ontario. During his seventy plus years as a respected Kitchener-Waterloo Artist he received numerous rewards and accolades and was a respected member of the community. His work is in the collection of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the City of Waterloo, the Kitchener-Waterloo Art Gallery, the London Regional Art Gallery, the National Club in Toronto, the Universities of Guelph, Waterloo and Wilfred Laurier and many, many private homes. Peter was predeceased by his parents, his brother Henry and his wife Helena. He is survived by his daughter Jean (David) HOOVER, his son Peter (Louella) GOETZ and his brother Siegfried (Corinne) GOETZ. He will be greatly missed by his long time friend and companion Dora Melville STEPHENS. He is also survived by his grandchildren Jennifer (Garry) MacLEAN, Oliver (Alpena) HOOVER and Travis HOOVER, as well as his great-grandchildren Megan and Lyssa MacLEAN and Alexander and Stephan HOOVER. There are many nieces and nephews. A viewing will be held at the Erb and Good Family Funeral Home, 171 King St. S., Waterloo, on Friday from 7-9 p.m. The funeral service will be held at Redeemer Lutheran Church, 78 John St. W., Waterloo, Saturday, September 1, 2007 11 a.m. Interment will follow at the Parkview Cemetery. If Friends so desire, memorial tributes may be made to Redeemer Lutheran Church, Canadian Cancer Society or the Lung Association, all of which he supported and these can be arranged through the funeral home, 519-745-8445 or www.erbgood.com.
