Peter Jackson (May 14, 1936 - March 07, 2017)

Peter passed away peacefully on March 7th in Victoria, BC. Born in Hong Kong, Peter's family moved to Canada and settled in West Vancouver where Peter was raised. After graduation, he began a successful career in radio broadcasting, moving to Winnipeg in the 60's where he achieved fame as PJ the DJ. Peter returned to Vancouver in the early 70's and settled in Deep Cove. He partnered in a broadcasting school and later, built a successful career in real estate. Peter loved travel, cars, meeting people and driving. He fell in love with Mexico and spent winters in Todos Santos on the Baja and later in San Jose Del Cabo. Peter was the life and soul of dinner parties where he entertained with tongue-in-cheek tall tales and true life stories. He loved making people laugh and is fondly remembered by many friends and family members, too numerous to mention. He is survived by his wife Jiehua Morrow, her son Ben, his first wife Diane and their son Peter Jr. and his spouse, Darlene. He is predeceased by his previous wife Nori. A celebration of life is to be held at the University of Victoria Interfaith Chapel on Sunday, May 28th from 2:30 PM - 3:45 PM at Parking Lot # 6, off Ring Road, 3800 Finnery Road, Victoria, BC, V8W 2Y2. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to a favourite charity.

Thanks to Gord Lansdell at Northwest Broadcasters for passing this along.
Those who danced were thought to be quite insane by those who couldn't hear the music.
