Luis Pedro, Jr.
April 22, 1947 to April 8, 2014
Luis Pedro, Jr., 67, left us on April 8, 2014 at the Kitimat General Hospital.
Luis was born April 22, 1947 in Terceira, Azores to Luis and Maria Teves. After his father got a job at Alcan they moved and relocated to Kitimat in 1959.
After highschool, Luis married Luisa Maria and after a few temporary jobs he settled on a permanent position with Alcan. He was very active in the union and retired from Alcan in 2000.
Luis took pride in raising and taking care of his family. He enjoyed music, cars, watching the Canucks and connecting with friends. Luis also spent a lot of time on his yard polishing up his vehicles and working behind the scenes at his successful business, Pedro’s Grill.
He is survived by his wife Luisa, brother George, sons Sheldon (Cori), Timothy, sister-in-law Debbie, nieces and nephews Nina, Lally, Lindsay, Ebony, Desmond, Jessie, their children, cousins and his beloved grandson “the light of my eyes” Julian. He is predeceased by his mother and father as well as his sister Lilly and brother-in-law Luis Dasilva.
The family would like to thank the staff of the Kitimat General Hospital for their exceptional care and support during Luis’ failing health. We are very blessed as a community to have such great nursing staff. Special thanks to Dr. Huang for his years of care, patience and friendship. To all those who have sent flowers and condolences, we are truly grateful.
