Klaui, Peter

 November 24, 1949 ~ April 1, 2023

     It’s with great sadness that the Klaui family announces the passing of Peter Klaui.

Peter was born in Calgary, AB to Peter & Annetta Klaui.  As a child, he lived in Calgary and later in Holland while his father was working in the Middle East.  The family then moved to Edgewater, B.C. where his sister, Mimi Price, husband Wayne Price and their children, Christy Olson, Jeremy Price and Tanya Smith still reside.

     As a young man, Peter tried his hand at many diverse jobs including a downhill ski instructor in Banff, AB and a ticket agent for PWA Airlines.  Unable to decide in which direction to go, he decided to try University where he earned two degrees in psychology and sociology at UBC.  Peter and Diane met at UBC and studied, partied and sport fished through the early 1970’s.

     With his University degrees on a forever back shelf, he decided to go fishing.  Pete left Vancouver and bought an old double-ender, east hope powered troller called the Margaret Rose and started his long career as a commercial fisherman.  Several years later, Diane quit teaching and commuting, and they started a commercial fish buying business purchasing a new troller/packer called the Richmond Star, spending the next 15 years fishing/buying fish.  In the mid 1990’s, with commercial fishing in severe decline, they launched a new career in guided hunting and sports fishing on the Central Coast of B.C.  Peter became a guide outfitter and captain to pursue their new family adventure.  Peter, Mike, Michelle, their standard poodle ‘Beau’ and Diane crewed on the Estero until their retirement.

     Peter is survived by wife Diane, children Michelle and Mike Klaui, grandchildren Cove Moldofsky, Linaya, William and Arianna Klaui.
