Obituary For Peter Allan Villebrun

Peter Allan Villebrun was born on July 19, 1950, to Charles and Alvina Villebrun in a teepee near Green Lake, Saskatchewan and passed away on April 7, 2023, at home surrounded by his wife and children.

Peter was predeceased by his parents, Charles and Alvina, his brothers Daniel, Oscar, Elmer, Ben and Howard and his sisters Rose Mathilda, Rose and Berniece.

He is survived by his brothers Edwin, (Ruby), Walter, Ray, Mervin and Jimmy (Carmen), godchildren Elmer and Walter, and his wife, Gwendolyn Leah, his children Jennifer, Steven, Rebecca (Darren) and his most special grandchildren Brodie and Lincoln as well as many, many close friends, nieces, nephews, family and others.

Peter could make a new friend or recognize an old one wherever he went. Throughout his life he impacted the lives of so many people. He was always supporting others as they traveled their own paths, whether it was financially emotionally or physically. Right to the end he was concerned about the wellbeing of others. He worked hard his entire life and had many careers throughout his life. Peter shared knowledge, his resilience, his strength and his love with his family and friends every day. Peter always said: ”Don’t worry, relax, everything’s going to be ok.”

    Dear Gwen, Jennifer,Steve,&Rebecca I remember Peter as a "Jack of all Trades". When Jennifer was born, Peter was working in Cynthia, AB.operating a crawler tractor. Somewhere in his travels, Gwen & Peter we're working a cab company in Fort McMurray, AB. My mom & dad(Jim & Irene McCallum)& Helen Kallbom drove Gwen up to Fort McMurray, AB. & from there he moved the house trailer to Valleyview, Ab. Later he moved to Sunset House, AB.& I think more children were born there. Have to check with Gwen to get details straight.Wayne Mcarthur & I saw Peter training "The Spirit Horse" (white face horse) & taking logs out. Steve was working on computers at home. Gwen was always busy working with social work& or being a teacher at home. THe whole family visited the McArthurs at Sturgeon Heights, AB.& I think Peter helped move houses to new locations. Peter always had a smile & a twinkle in his eye. He will be missed. Much love to Gwen, Jennifer, Rebecca & Steve.❤️🙏From Helen & Wayne McArthur & Irene McCallum & Jim
