Peter F. Plotnikoff obituary (1998)
Peter Fred Plotnikoff passed away on 5 September 1998 in Grand Forks, British Columbia. I never asked Pop about this particular obituary, but I suspect that he saved it, because he and Peter were friends going back to their days when they picked fruit in the Okanagan orchards of BC in the 1940s. My husband Michael remembers working with a man named Pete Plotnikoff at the Grand Forks’ division of Pope & Talbot, a lumber company, in the 1970s, so that’s probably another connection.
The text appears to have continued in the next column, so Bill wrote the remaining few words at the end of the obituary. (I recognize his handwriting.)
