“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”.
