In memory of
Peter Lloyd SHORE
SHORE, Peter Lloyd March 8, 1933 - December 31, 2016 With deep sadness we announce that Peter Lloyd Shore, age 83 who spent most of his entire life in Pemberton, BC, has passed away peacefully in Sechelt, BC after 27 months in care, on December 31, 2016. Peter is known for his long career in logging, which followed a brief effort to farm the family land. He was very involved in the development of the Pemberton Valley in some aspects – clearing farm land for others, helping with the expansion of the Legion and digging the foundation of the United Church, working with others to build the new highway and open a link to Whistler. With his first logging company he hired many local guys to do a great deal of logging that made Pemberton prosperous in the 50 and 60's and beyond. With partner Jim Collins Peter had more years of high volume logging. Later he logged a significant number of new ski runs for Whistler/Blackcomb, logged private lands, and bought and sold lands he logged in Bralorne. He was inventive in his approach to most things and thrived on challenges. Please visit the Pemberton Museum Archives to read the two stories posted in 2012 Int'l Year of Forestry: Peter Shore Logging Ltd and C&S Logging Ltd where you will find much on the early logging and the loggers. Peter was predeceased by his father, Lloyd Shore and his mother Lillian (Broadfoot) Shore, brothers Gary and Frank Shore. He is survived by his wife Carol, sisters Ruth Cowell, Norma Rivett, Nancy Gilmore, and brother David Shore, children Kim Champness (Greg), Brandy Shore, Susan Peters, Doug Shore. He is also survived by grandchildren Tammy Shore (Brad), Regan Hammond, Amanda Peters, Kassi Peters, Kristina Peters, Walter Champness, Kyle Champness (Randy); and great-grandchildren Kayden and Carter Champness, Ryder Shore- White, and River Peters, plus many nieces and nephews and their offspring. Peter was a larger-than-life man, a legend who will be greatly missed by all those who understood him best. It is said that Peter was a man's man and could speak his mind profanely and fend off all enemies. He enjoyed a great deal of verbal jousting. He was brash and tough. No one would suggest he was politically correct! If you knew him and were the better for it, please toast him! May Peter now be free of his tethers and able to get up to his antics! The family wishes to offer very heartfelt thanks to the amazingly talented, compassionate staff at Shorncliffe Care Home in Sechelt, kitchen staff and cat Piper. Our thanks also to Doctor M J Bryson for his attentions to Peter.
