Peter Adolf Frederick Krack

August 9, 1938 - July 6, 2020


Peter Krack (full name Friedrich Adolf Peter Krack)
As Peter’s Godchild, I have been asked to write a few words
about Peter.
Peter was born in Neuschwanstein, Bavaria, Germany on August
9th,1938 and passed away unexpectedly in the beauty of his
garden in Winlaw, B.C. on July 6th, 2020.
Peter was a man with what seemed like never ending energy,
passion and enthusiasm for all he pursued. Some of his dearest
interests were education, economy and finances, art,
construction and music. Peter was a dedicated follower and
student in the philosophy of Rudolf Steiner’s Anthroposophy.
Peter had three children with his first wife Margaret, Marius,
Florian and Nina. I have recollections of us all running around as
children on their property and have been grateful to be able to
connect again after all these years.
As a young child I have fond memories sailing the Golf Islands
with Peter and his second wife Rita on a catamaran he built
himself. Sometimes the waves were rough, but Peter was
confident at sea. In calm waters we used to jump off the front,
swim under and catch the rope he had for us once we were out
the other side. Such fun! I also have fond memories being invited
to ski with him and his family at Mount Baldy. Every winter we
would head to the little A- frame cabin he built single handed in
21 days, start to finish. I always thought it looked like an inviting
little crooked bird house!
What speaks to me most about Peter was his love, knowledge
and devotion to the arts and especially music. Peter was a fine
pianist. We spent many hours playing together (cello and piano). I
have come to understand that I was not alone in this. Peter
shared his music with many in the Winlaw area.
Peter loved and lived life. He loved the sun, his garden,
swimming, downhill skiing at Whitewater, travelling the world and
especially Mexico where he spent time with his dear Maiya. This
past fall, I received an email saying he was in Columbia “The
people are wonderful. That’s really why I am here”.
Peter grew into a man who loved people and music. No matter
what concert I attended, if Peter was in town, he would be there.
We will miss you dearly Peter, thank you for being my Godfather
and know that you will forever be in our hearts, the nature we
connect with and the music we hear.
A celebration of life will be held, date and time to be confirmed.

The Good Shepherd lead thee
Where thou art transformed
That thou mayest breathe
The air of eternal Being.
Where thou workers as soul
For worlds to come
The grace of the Spirit
Unite us with thee.
-Adam Bittleston
