In Passing: Peter Sweeney

Peter Sweeney passed away on November 13, 2011 at the age of 67 after a struggle with cancer. Many members of the architectural community came to know and appreciate Peter in his role as a senior building official with the City of Vancouver, where he spent most of his professional career. A good friend of the AIBC, he was a highly active member of the Building Officials of British Columbia (BOABC), serving on various technical committees as well as a member of its executive. He also represented the City of Vancouver and the BOABC on various industry and government advisory groups, including the AIBC’s Regulatory Coordination Committee, helping to build a legacy of higher standards and understanding, all in the public interest. Peter is survived by his wife Frances, and sons Neil (Tanis), Greg (Sandy), Brian (Isabelle), Michael (Nicki), and Brent (Robin). In lieu of flowers, those wishing to make a donation in Peter’s name are encouraged to do so  to the Delta Hospice Society, 4631 Clarence Taylor Crescent, Delta, BC, V4K 4L8.
