ZILNEY, Peter Eugene

The death occurred on June 10, 2020 of Peter Eugene Zilney at the age of 76.  Peter was born in Cloyne, Ontario to parents Tom Zilney and Helen Hartwick.  He was one of 9 children.  Surviving him are his brother Lorne (Diane) of Wellington, Ontario, sister Theressia Fox of Wellington and sister Ann (Larry) Guy of Ottawa and sister-in-law Dianne Zilney of Novar.   He is predeceased by his brother John and sisters, Lillian Snider, Shirley Baumhour, Beverely Spencer and Elizabeth Zilney.  Peter spent his younger years in Prince Edward County before coming to Huntsville.

Peter was a kind and gentle soul who will be remembered as the guy who was always walking around town.  He had a route he would walk, sometimes twice a day.  He was always ready with a smile and hello to all he met on his walks.  He enjoyed breakfast at Family Place when he could, and church dinners a couple times a week.

Peter will be missed by all who knew him especially his many nieces and nephews.  A memorial service will be held at a later date.  As an expression of sympathy memorial donations can be made to Canadian Mental Health Association Muskoka-Parrry Sound,  or The Table Soup Kitchen Foundation,  Messages of condolence can be left at
