Peter Vinczer

August 1, 1937 — May 16, 2024

It is with a very heavy heart I convey the passing of my father, Peter S Vinczer.  Peter suffered a horrible accident at work. He was rushed to Sunnybrook Hospital. After eight hours of successful surgery, his heart stopped an hour and a half later.  He was 86, full of life and enthusiasm to create so much more.  The doctors did everything to resuscitate him, unsuccessfully.  Peter was husband to his beloved wife Katalin, married 67 years.  They had three boys, Gabor, Attila and Zsolt. Peter was a father, a grandfather, an artist, a mint master, master jeweller, avid writer, an outdoorsman, understood political complexities with encyclopedic knowledge of history as it affects humanity.  Peter loved classical music, especially Hungarian, the arts, singing, playing his Hawaiian guitar, reading, poetry, karate, yoga, swimming and he loved to create jewelry masterpieces and minting dies.  

Peter loved to help others in need.  He selflessly put everyone else ahead of himself.  A humble man who never sought special recognition or praise for anything he did including recreating Morcici Jewellery for president Tito, masterpiece for President Bush Sr., beautiful coins of President Trump and First Lady Melania and many beautiful pieces for Vatican Popes.  Dad never complained about being tired or sick.  Never got stumped, never said  can’t or I’m too tired. He was a tough warrior spirit.

Peter co-founded the Canadian Maltese Charitable Service Trust with his best friend, Msgr. Imre Kozma earning the highest award, the Maltese Knight Cross for his humanitarian endeavours risking his life during the Yugoslavian war.

He leaves behind his wife Katalin, his children, Zsolt Attila and Gabor. His grandsons Steven and Ryan. Brothers Frank and Laci, Nieces Agi, Zsuzsi, Erica and Natali and brother in-law László, his wife Vibke, son Attila, nephew Ákos and family, cousin Izabella and many other beloved friends.

Peter deeply loved his wife Katalin falling in love 67 years ago.  He adored his mother and father, often dropping tears when he reminisced.  Loved his children and grandchildren. Peter S. Vinczer leaves behind a legacy of unprecedented art and success, touching the hearts of many with his unwavering kindness, benevolence and good will to mankind.  Peter S. Vinczer will be sorrowly missed. Not everyone understood his way of thinking. His Upright noble intentions were patently pure leaving smiles on the faces of those he blessed with his good will.

We forever love You Dad, Apa, Nagytata.  May you rest in everlasting peace in the Kingdom of Heaven.  Thank you for everything you have done.  You will never be efaced from our hearts and our memories.  Till we meet again.  Isten veled Édesapánk.
