It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Peter Gibbons, a long time BC/YK Section & Skate Canada volunteer and official.

Skating has been a part of Peter’s life for over 65 years. As many figure skating athletes, Peter transitioned from competitions to ice shows, and then onto coaching. When Peter stopped coaching in 1990, he turned his attention to officiating. Over the past 32 years, Peter has been one of the most active officials in the BC/YK Section.  Peter was a Canadian Level Synchronized Skating Official and a Senior Sectional Singles Judge, he was always available to travel anywhere to judge/evaluate and most recently easily transitioned into remote officiating and virtual assessment days. Peter also served on many committees including a period as the Chair of the BC Coast Region Board.

Donations can be made in Peter's memory to the SPCA.  

Our condolences to Peter's family and friends on his passing.
