Obituary

Peter Alan James Cowan 

January 9, 1986 - November 14, 2022 

It is with profound heartbreak and inconsolable sadness that we have to say goodbye to our beloved Peter, who died tragically on Monday afternoon. Peter was an amazing father, husband, brother, son, uncle, friend, community builder, athlete and sports enthusiast, arborist and small business owner. He loved nothing more than his family and Muskoka. He is survived by a large and loving family: his wife Stephanie; daughters Macaulay & Mallany; parents Michael and Jeannie; mother-in-law Karen; siblings Theresa, James, Sheila, Joseph, Marita, Thomas, Paul and Jacinta; Stephanie’s siblings Sarah, Scott and Kim, as well as a huge extended circle of family, friends, co-workers and teammates. Peter loved to talk, had a generous heart, a magnificent smile and the loudest laugh in every room. We will miss him terribly. 

The following are dates and times to visit with family and friends to remember and celebrate a life that was taken far too soon:

 

Friday, November 18 - Festival Of Lights downtown Bracebridge. 6-8pm.  Everyone welcome.  Please come and show the girls our love for their Dad.

Support and Expressions Of Remembrance:

Peter’s love and generosity touched so many people and many friends and family have asked how they can help support Stephanie and her daughters through this inexplicable tragedy. In response to these requests, the Cowan and Strang families have set up a GoFundMe page to help with both short-term including funeral expenses, and more distant financial support. On behalf of the Cowan and Strang families, thank you for supporting Peter’s family through this extremely difficult time (https://gofund.me/342cbd7b).

Other expressions of remembrance are warmly and equally welcome. Contributions may be made in Peter’s name to the Canadian Mental Health Association, Muskoka - Parry Sound Branch, CMHA (https://www.canadahelps.org/en/dn/18314?v1=true) or to the Mark Preece Family House (https://markpreecehouse.ca/donate/). If you choose to send flowers, the family suggests supporting local Muskoka florists: CR Flowers & Balloons (https://www.crflowers.ca/) or Seasons in the Country  (https://www.seasonsinthecountry.com/). Flowers may be directed to the Reynolds Funeral Home.
