CONSTABLE PETER MAGDIC It is with great sadness and sorrow in our hearts, with great pain and immense grief that we announce the tragic passing of our beloved son and brother Peter Magdic. Tragically on Sunday, November 18, 2001 in Portage la Prairie, MB, Peter was called to his Heavenly Home at the age of 28 years. Peter was born in Winnipeg and lived here for most of his life until his career took him to Portage. Peter lived life to its absolute maximum potential and those who knew Peter know this to be very true. Peter will be greatly missed by his parents, mother Mara and father Janko Magdic. He will also be missed by his brother Tomislav and his brother Ivan and wife Krista; nieces, Emily and Juliana. He will be missed by his Godparents, many relatives in Croatia and abroad, his friends from the R.C.M.P., his many friends from the Croatian Community and numerous others whom all loved him dearly. Peter had a great love for the outdoors. He loved hunting and fishing. He took many many hunting trips with his brothers and father. Peter played soccer for many years and also danced for numerous years with the Croatian Folk Ensemble. He always felt at home when he would come back to the community in Winnipeg. He was very proud of his Croatian ethnicity, he was able to read, write, and speak Croatian fluently. Peter made his family and the community very proud when he graduated as an R.C.M.P. officer last year, being the first Croatian R.C.M.P. officer in Manitoba. Peter was a fun loving man. Wherever Peter went he made friends with ease and was just that kind of person that you could easily feel comfortable with. He was also one of a few, who truly loved his career and was ever so happy doing what he loved and getting to do it everyday. Prayers will be said on Thursday, November 22, at 7:00 p.m. at St. Nicolas Tavelich Croatian Roman Catholic Church, 2688 Main St. Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Friday, November 23, at 10:00 a.m., also at St. Nicolas Tavelich Church, with Father Franjo Visatiski officiating. Interment will follow in Glen Eden Memorial Gardens. Pallbearers will be members of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. The family would like to thank the R.C.M.P. for their continual support, and the numerous friends for their continued care and support in our time of need. Thank you ever so kindly for all your prayers and kindness in our time of suffering. His zest for life was remarkable. He lived every day as if it were his last, not leaving any deed undone and making sure he got the most out of each day. He loved his parents and his brothers and would always make sure they knew that. Peter loved all his friends and he loved life. We are sad Peter, and do not understand why you had to go...we are hurting Peter, and do not know why we did not get to say good-bye. We will miss you Peter and we cannot believe we will not see your beautiful smile radiating like the brightest sun. But we believe that this is what the Lord wanted and only he knows why it had to be this way, we know you are in his house...we will never forget you and always love you, our grief will be forever heavy in our hearts...until we meet again dearest son and brother, dearest friend and fellow officer. We love you deeply, go with the peace of Christ as that is the way it must be...until we meet again Peter. Flowers gratefully accepted. Please send to Church.
