It is with heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of Peter Chitruk, 92 years on Sunday, September 10, 2017 at Health Sciences North. Beloved husband of 51 years to the late Francis (nee Morin) whom predeceased him in 2009. Loving father of Peter Chitruk. Peter spent a lot of quality time with his dear friend Carmen Rioux. Born in Sudbury on December 19, 1924 he was the son of the late Alex and Sophia (nee Bobowski) Chitruk. He was a well-known and established business man who was the first to sell soft ice cream in the Sudbury area but more recently until his retirement, he was selling boats and cars with Van Horne Motors. Enjoying his retirement years, he could be found on the local lakes, cruising in his boat with family and friends. Peter will be remembered for his willingness to help others, his kind heart, his love of life and always speaking his mind. Those who knew Peter, knew he had “no filters”. A very special thank you to the doctors, nurses, family and friends that were with him in ICU. In keeping with his wishes there will be no visitation. A Celebration of Peter’s Life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Northern Cancer Foundation would be appreciated.
