Peter Andrew Hucik

November 16, 1949 ~ April 28, 2023 (age 73) 73 Years Old


Peter passed away suddenly April 28, 2023, getting his lawn mower ready for his summer passion – having the best-groomed lawn in the country.  He is survived by his loving wife and best friend Ilah; his children, Deena (grandchildren, Darius and Dakota), Tammy (Paul) (grandchildren, Zack and Kilah), and Kyle (Heather); his siblings, Louise Dalziel (Stewart) and Gerald Hucik (Tracey) and their families; brother-in-law, Norman Lee; sisters-in-law, Dianne, Bonnie (Aime), Nancy (Gary), their families, and many cherished others.

He was a man of many talents and through the years he re-invented himself from one career to the next and took on each of them with honesty, integrity, and pride.

Peter was a Petroleum Technologist and worked with Bryan Robertson in the “Oil Patch” and developed a lifelong friendship with him. We decided to come home to ranch and raise our family in the country.  During that time, he was a volunteer Auxiliary with the RCMP for 7 years.  We had Re-Fine Contracting working at the dam, he had several positions at Cowley Forest Products and ended his working life as a Realtor for 17 years, then retired in 2016 and we spent the last 7 years traveling, visiting friends, and enjoying life.  We started traveling in 2001, never missing a year and gained some wonderful new friends, “our travelling buddies” from both Alberta and B.C.

As we raised our family, we spent summer weekends camping in the gap and other local camping areas and never missed the Cowley Lundbreck Rodeo.  We were also very involved in the kids sports in many capacities.  The highlight of his life was the love and pride he had for his family, but he loved his friends and people in general always making a huge effort to keep in touch with them.

He will always be remembered with our love and cherished memories.

Heartfelt thanks to Dr. Tracy Burton and all the nurses in the Pincher Creek hospital who took such good care of Peter, and Lorna for always being on top of things.  Also, to the best neighbors one could have, Karen and Steve Rutledge, and Courtney who came immediately to our aid, and the EMS who did all they could with immense professionalism.

He was predeceased by his parents Jennie and Peter Hucik; sister-in-law, Mary Rose Lee; brother- in-law, Henk Zantinge; parents-in-law, Bob and Maxine Lee; nephew, Randy Pigeon, and many cherished friends.

A Celebration of his life was held at the Pincher Creek Community Hall on Saturday, May 13, 2023, at 1:00 PM.

In lieu of flowers, donations to the Windy Slopes Health Foundation would be welcomed.
