Peter J. Koopman – 1948-2021
Peter was born in Zaandam, Nederland and came to Winnipeg, Canada in 1969. Within a year he was working for Westeel until his retirement. He worked out of their offices in Winnipeg, Regina and Olds where he made many friends especially on the curling and soccer teams, and golfing and once he retired, at lawn bowling.
He is survived by his wife Corrie and her children, Chris and Melani, and grandsons, Arend and Willem. By his son, Christophe and grandson, Zane. Also by his family in Holland – sister, Rineke (Cor) and her son Yoram, brother Martin (Carry) and children, Laura (Nathan) and Ruben, sister Annelies, and sister Hetty (Dinah) and daughter Robin (Bas) and daughter Megan (Corine).
Peter and Corrie enjoyed four fabulous years together on Vancouver Island until he suddenly passed away in February. He will be missed by all who enjoyed his great sense of humour and his fabulous cooking.

“Whenever I think of my time spent with you,
When so many beautiful dreams have come true,
Whenever I think of how happy I’ve been
I just fall in love all over again”
