Peter Heppner was born at Sea on July 9, 1948 to Wilhelm and Aganetha Heppner (nee Thiessen).  He moved around a fair bit when he was younger, working in various occupations.  Shortly after Peter and Lina met, they moved to Manitoba and were married in 1974.  He was a truck driver for the last 15 years until November of 2006 when he had to give up driving due to his illness.  He was spent the last few months of his life being at home enjoying his family, Emma - his special gift, his music and the special moments with friends.
