Obituary

“An Angel whispered, take my hand and come with me, your work here is done.” (unknown)

Our beloved Peter J. Fust passed away on June 28th, 2020 at the age of 77. He would have celebrated his 78th birthday on Sunday, July 12, 2020.

Although he bravely fought terminal cancer for over 6 years with a continued zest for living, he died of viral pneumonia caused by COVID-19. His family was most important to him. He is survived by his wife Heather, son Attila, daughter Jennifer, grandchildren Sophia and Max, brother Erno, niece and nephew and great nieces.

Peter J. Fust was born in Budapest, Hungary, on July 12, 1942. In 1956, at the age of 14, he escaped the communist take-over of Hungary with his Aunt Elizabeth. He started a family with his wife Heather in New York City and then reunited with his brother Erno, sister-in-law Csilla, his niece Sheila and nephew Peter, in Canada in 1973. A book with many chapters could be written about Peter’s life journeys. He was a big man (6’2”), very handsome, he had a great sense of humour and a big heart. He was a successful salesman and cartographer and an adventurer. Throughout his life he enjoyed sailing his “XTC” boats on Lake Ontario as a long-time member of the National Yacht Club in Toronto. His other adventures included skiing mountains around North America, cycling, motorcycling with “the boys”, designing sailboats, building model trains, attending the symphony, dancing, and driving with the top down.

Our hearts are heavy, but we know that he is watching over us. Whenever we hear a chickadee call, we will know it is him. This is not good-bye, only “szia”.

Dad, we miss you this Christmas. We will keep you close with our thoughts, our prayers and in stories. The Angel will be ringing the bell for Sophia and Max with you there beside her. I love you Dad. Thank you for living a good life so I could do the same.

Our sincere condolences to the whole family and especially to Jennifer. I never met your father, but I know that you cared for him deeply. May memories of your good times together replace some of the sadness at his departure.

Hod Vod Mr. Fust!! You will be missed, but also long remembered! I can still hear your laugh as you sent Jennifer and I to scrape barnacles off the boat (you were half kidding!), recall how you teased us as we recounted our teenage dramas, commiserated with me over our mutual love of European cars, and recounted your youthful adventures to Roman. You were certainly one of kind!! Rest in peace Mr Fust, and deepest condolences you Mrs. Fust, to Jennifer, Attie, and family. xoxo Lara

Rest In Peace uncle peter 😞

You can tell a lot about another man by the grip of a handshake and their demeanor, so well spoken, so respected and always having extensive knowledge about history and pretty much everything.

Going to miss your stories and funny jokes especially during Christmas dinners.

Hope to see you again in heaven one day

Love Chris, Falicia, Skyla and Xavier
