Peter Klassen

1956 – 2018 

On Monday September 24, 2018 at Boundary Trails Health Centre, Peter Klassen age 62 years of Winkler, MB went to eternity with the Lord Jesus. 

Peter was born on January 16, 1956 to his parents, Jacob D and Agatha Klassen in Tattlerose, BC. He was baptized upon confession of his faith on June 6, 1976 and remained faithful to his commitment to Christ Jesus. He was married to Dora on March 12, 1994 and was the most Godly husband. They were gifted with two beautiful sons, Marcus in 1996 and Kendall in 1998. Peter was a proud, gentle and loving father always. God knew Pete’s character and chose him to travel this journey of cancer. After the diagnosis, Peter’s words were, “If this is what God wants me to do, I want to do it in a way that will honor and glorify Him.” And that’s exactly what he did! He suffered greatly but did so gracefully. He never complained. Every day he claimed, “God is so good”. He gave himself to God in every way. He left and example to be proud of. We will need him and miss him beyond measure until we meet again on the other side. We love you, Pete and Dad. 

He leaves to mourn his passing his wife, Dora (nee Buhler), two sons, Marcus Klassen and his fiancé, Evelyn Nickel and Kendall Klassen as well as five sisters, five brothers, one sister-in-law and their families. He was predeceased by his parents, one brother one brother-in-law and two nieces. 

Funeral service at 10:30 a.m. on Friday September 28, 2018 at the Winkler Sommerfeld Mennonite Church with interment at Westridge Memorial Gardens. Donations may be made in Peter’s memory to the Boundary Trails Health Centre Foundation designated to Palliative Care. 

We cannot even begin to name the people to thank; there are so many. Please know that we pray for God to bless each one of you personally for your kindness. We ask that you keep on praying for us. We love you!
