John Tourand Obituary

John “Peter” Tourand

November 28, 1950 – January 31, 2024

It is with profound sadness that the family of Peter Tourand announces his passing after a long courageous battle with Alzheimer’s and Lewy Body Dementia.  Peter was born in Meadow Lake, Sask. and moved to Prince George in 1969 where he found the love of his life, Frances, in 1970.  Peter found work at Clear Lake Sawmills when he first came to Prince George, where he worked for 42 years when the Sawmill shut down.  Peter married Frances in 1973, and just celebrated their 51st Anniversary.  Together they had 3 children.  Peter loved the game of fastball, of which he was a well-respected Pitcher for many years.  He loved spending time with his family and friends, no matter the venue.

Peter is survived by his loving wife Frances, children: Jeremy (Kim), Jacqui (Trent) Abernethy, & Cory (Wendy).  Also survived by grandchildren: Darian, Rylan, Ashley, Madicyn, Brooklyn, Lexie, David, Keagan, Brett, & Chase; numerous great grandchildren; Brother Lawrence (Sue) Sharkey.  Brother in-law Jack (Carol), Sisters in-law Connie, Jeannie, Mary (Bruce); and many nieces and nephews.  Pre-deceased by: Father Ed, Mother Blanche, & Brother Art.

The family would like to extend a very heartfelt thank you to Dr’s Attia, Warkentin, Geddes, and Carter, for all their advocating, compassion and caring, not only for Peter, but his family as well. Special thank you to all those at the Hospice at Home Program. Your kindness and compassion will never be forgotten.
