Peter was the youngest son of four, born to Cynthia Marietta Lightbody (Anderson) and Walley Pearson Lightbody, on the date of April 18th, 1966 at Lions Gate Hospital. Peter’s elder siblings are Catherine, Michael and Sarah. Peter spent his childhood living on the shores of West Vancouver where he loved collecting sea glass, casting for cod off the rocky turf and floating about the bay on old logs. He attended Caulfield Elementary School, Hillside Secondary School, then the University of British Columbia where he discovered a passion for classic English literature. He then pursued a law degree at the University of Alberta and has built his career as a lawyer over the years, most recently as a partner at Lakes, Whyte LLP in North Vancouver.
Peter leaves behind his loving wife Brenda whom he met and fell in love with in high school. Last August, they celebrated 25 years of marriage. Peter and Brenda built their life together in North Vancouver where they raised their three beautiful daughters Cynthia, Robin and Jessica. He’ll be remembered as a wizard on the barbeque, a captivating storyteller and as a second father to all the neighbourhood kids on 27th street. Most importantly, Peter was a proud husband and father who leaves behind “his four girls” with countless memories and everlasting love.
