Peter Wiebe III was born on March 30, 1937, to Peter and Margaret Wiebe in Neuendarp, Ukraine. Peter passed away peacefully on June 6, 2022, at the age of 85, surrounded by his adoring family after complications from a severe stroke.
Peter married Barbara Funk on November 1, 1958, and together they started their family in North Kildonan.
Peter is survived by his loving wife of 63 years, Barbara, his eldest daughter Janet (The Den Den), Susan, who was his Susie, the baby Barbee (Big Mikey) and his cherished brother Abe (Terry). Peter's legacy will live on with his granddaughters, Tina (Dan The Bricklayer), and Terrilyn (Joe) and his great-grandchildren, Gavin, Ezri, and Jagori. Peter was predeceased by his parents and his beloved cat and constant companion, Woodzee.
Peter supported his family by way of his own businesses, the first being, P. Wiebe Stucco & Masonry. He was an extremely dedicated family man, and he would do anything for his little ducklings, as he called his girls. He was kind and generous and would give you the shirt off his back if you needed it. Peter was an award-winning sportsman and later in life he created his own outdoor guiding company called Peter Wiebe Outfitting. He even designed his own logo and plastered that thing everywhere (using fluorescent orange tape and a black Sharpie marker).
Peter took great pride in having the most immaculate lawn in the neighborhood and growing the biggest and most delicious tomatoes in all of Winnipeg. He was an avid gardener and passed down his green thumb to his daughters and his brother Abe.
Peter was tough as nails and as soft as a marshmallow. He had an opinion for everything and a genuine desire to provide his knowledge to the people he loved, or, anyone else he happened to meet in the Giant Tiger parking lot. He was a softie, from rescuing stray animals to pampering his wife Buttercup, he was loving and yet boldly unapologetic with his true feelings. In the end, Peter, The Legend, The Great White Hunter, was unlike anyone you have ever met.
A memorial service will be held on Friday, June 10 at 11:00 a.m. at Cross Church, 1787 Logan Avenue.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Winnipeg Humane Society.

  • Oh Peter ... I will miss you, sweet man, so completely lovable in your endearingly gruff (yet gentle) manner. I will miss you asking me if I'm still with the same guy !! I will miss having that two-tone conversation when I call to talk to Barb ... you always your funny vocal self in the background (or still on the extension line!), cracking jokes, asking questions ... the ever-happily-present third party !! I am so very grateful that I got to see you last week, sit for a time for a driveway visit, and answer one last time that YES, I'm still with the same wonderful guy! We will all take the best care in loving your sweet Buttercup ... give Woodzee a cuddle and a kiss from me. We know where you are ... in God's most beautiful Garden, growing huge, heavenly tomatoes ~ rest in peace xoxo - Posted by: Sandi Cain (Family friend) on: Jun 08, 2022
