    • CME Badge

    We regret to advise of the death of Warrant Officer Peter Philip (Pete) Hannam (Ret'd) on 31 August 2004 at the Chilliwack General Hospital at the age of 64 years.

    Born in Jean-de-Baie, NL, Pete joined the Royal Canadian Engineers in June 1960. He started out as a Field Engineer and later served as a Structures Technician and later, a Construction Maintenance Technician. His career included postings at Camp Gagetown, NB, 4 Field Squadron, Germany, CFB Shilo, Manitoba, CFS Churchill, Manitoba, Camp Vernon, British Columbia, Camp Wainwright, Alberta, and three postings to CFB Chilliwack, British Columbia.

    Pete retired from the Canadian Forces in 1992 and he and his wife Jo settled on a small acreage near Salmon Arm, BC for 10 years before moving back to Chilliwack. Pete had a passion for animals and the breeding, raising and showing of dogs was the family hobby for more than 30 years. For the past 20 years, he specialised on Dalghani Tibetan Terriers and won numerous Best in Show awards. Actively involved with many dog clubs for over 30 years and a Life Member of the Canadian Kennel Club, Pete gave generously of his time and effort to national and local clubs - often serving as president. Pete also loved fishing and excelled in woodworking craftsmanship and spent many hours in his shop. Always ready to help, Pete will be remembered for his kindness and generosity.

    Cremation has taken place. A Celebration of Pete's life will be held at the Royal Canadian Legion Br.#280, Vedder Crossing on Tuesday, 14 September 2004 at 1:30 p.m. {khAug 2015} [zpp]
