Life Story for Peter Rylander

Peter  Rylander
Peter Lynn Rylander

At the end of 80 well-lived years, navigated with humour, courage, love of family, and numerous athletic pursuits, Peter passed away at Hospice Niagara - The Stabler Centre on June 1, 2018.

Loving husband and friend of Sandra (nee Smith) for 50 years. Cherished father of the late Megan (1997) and Heather Rylander-Pearce of Toronto. Proud father-in- law of Jonathan Pearce, and caring Morfar (Grandfather) to his two precious grandsons, William and Philip.

Peter is survived by his two brothers, Richard (Katharine) of Saint Lambert, Quebec, and Donald of Brighton, Ontario, and step-brother of William Westaway (Terry) of Thornhill.

He leaves behind his sisters-in-law, Lynne Marr (the late Gordon) of Saint John, NB, Charlotte Bell (David) of Smiths Falls, and Alison Abbott (Ted) of Brockville.

Born in Saint Lambert, Quebec, Peter was educated at the University of New Brunswick and the University of Oregon. After a number of years teaching and coaching in the high school systems of Saint Lambert, Beaconsfield, Quebec, and West Vancouver, he was drawn to the college system of Ontario. Peter completed 27 years as Athletic Director at Niagara College. He was proud to be inducted into the Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) Hall of Fame in 2016, and the Niagara College Knights Hall of Fame in 1998.

The constant throughout Peter’s life was his love of sports and his belief that physical fitness was essential. As a young man he competed in track and field, basketball, football, baseball, and hockey. In later years he concentrated on golf, tennis, biking, slo-pitch, and bowling. He loved the comradeship that accompanied these athletic pursuits, especially his golfing buddies (the Toads), his Niagara College friends, his slo-pitch teammates, and fellow tennis players at White Oaks Racquet and Fitness Club.

Friends may call at the Morse and Son Funeral Home, 5917 Main Street, Niagara Falls, on Monday June 4th from 7-9 pm. A celebration of Life will take place at his church, Stamford Lane United Church, 3855 St. Peter Ave, Niagara Falls, on Tuesday June 5th at 11am.

As an expression of sympathy, those who wish, may make a memorial donation to Hospice Niagara - the Stabler Centre. The family is so thankful for the hospice ‘s caring support when we needed it most.
