BECKLES, Peter - (1940 - 2022)

It is with great sadness that we share the passing of much loved husband, father, grandfather, uncle, brother and friend Peter Beckles. Peter, 81, passed away peacefully on Saturday July 9, 2022 at Extendicare Rouge Valley in Scarborough, Ontario.

We would like to extend our sincere thanks to all the staff at Extendicare Rouge Valley for the care they provided to him during his time there.

Peter is survived by his spouse of 53 years, Margaret Beckles, their three children, Karen, Judith (Nelson), Natasha, two grandchildren, Jacob-Peter (JP), Jonas and his two siblings, Cynthia and Lloyd (Sonia).

Born in San Fernando, Trinidad, he was the son of Victoria Ransome and Harry Beckles.

He graduated from technical school in Point Fortin, Trinidad and George Brown College, Toronto. He was employed at Ontario Power Generation where he worked as a Control Technician for 29 years.

He loved the Lord and was a devoted member of Altona Road Community Church. He will be remembered for his gentle, kind and selfless nature and will be greatly missed by all who knew him. 

Visitation and funeral arrangements are entrusted with McEachnie Funeral Home in Ajax.  Due to COVID restrictions, space for the funeral is limited and will be reserved for family and close friends.
