Phelps, Peter Farrell

Peter Phelps, of Grimsby, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, May 30, 2023, two days before his 91st birthday, at Albright Manor, Beamsville, with his loving wife of 66 years, Barbara by his side. Loved father of Paul (Wendy), James (Heather) and Dianne Littleton (David). Proud Poppa to Wesleigh, Maggie, Hilary, Catherine, Claire, Jillian, Tom, Jennifer, Rebecca and Melissa. Brother to Mary (Willard) VanOsten. Predeceased by his grandson Daniel. He will be fondly remembered by his nephew, nieces, and the many many friends that he and Barbara shared their life with. Peter was born and raised in Grimsby, was a proud alumnus and class president at Grimsby High and earned his Engineering and Business degree at The University of Toronto in 1955. He began his career at Westinghouse in Hamilton, returned to Grimsby in 1959 with local builder Hall-Olgilvie, and founded Peter Phelps & Associates (now Phelps Homes) in 1975. Peter was an avid curler, model railroader, cub scout leader, gardener, historian, Blue Jays fan and a generous community supporter including Trinity United Church and West Lincoln Memorial Hospital. He served on the Boards of the Grimsby Historical Society, West Lincoln Memorial Hospital and Albright Manor. He enjoyed the fellowship of numerous clubs including bridge, poker, investment and Probus. From his early teens, Peter cherished time with his family each year at his cottage, “Shebandowan”, on Lake Rosseau in Muskoka and in his retirement spent many hours tinkering with his “Dippy”, getting her ready for the next regatta. The family would like to thank the 5th Floor team at Albright Manor for the care they provided to Peter over the past five months. Visitation took place at STONEHOUSE-WHITCOMB FUNERAL HOME, 11 Mountain Street, GRIMSBY (905-945-2755) on Friday, June 2, 2023, from 3 – 7 p.m. A Service of Remembrance was held at Trinity United Church, 100 Main Street West, Grimsby on Saturday, June 3, 2023, at 11 a.m.  Burial at Queen’s Lawn Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions to West Lincoln Memorial Hospital Foundation would be sincerely appreciated by the family.
