Peter Smith
(1933 -2006)

Peter L. Smith   (March 31, 1933 - August 29, 2006).   Died suddenly following a stroke. Born in Victoria, Peter graduated from Victoria High School in 1949 before going on to earn degrees at Victoria College, UBC and Yale. A long-time classics professor and administrator at the University of Victoria, he continued to stay involved with the university even after his retirement. As well, he participated in numerous community activities and undertook various literary endeavours. He is survived by his wife Mary Jean, daughters Cindy Cullen (Tom) and Sarah Smith, son Dan Hinman-Smith, sisters Winsome Oliver and Barbara Peterson (Ben), grandchildren Dallas and Kelsey, mother-in-law Marjorie Levirs, and many other relatives. The family would like to thank the doctors and nursing staff at VGH 6B for their compassionate care. A memorial service open to all will be held at 2 p.m. on Sunday, September 10, at the University Club on the UVIC campus. Those who desire to do so may contribute to the Peter L. Smith Scholarship in Greek and Roman Studies at UVIC or to a favourite charity.
