We are terribly sad to announce the passing of former Peace River Mayor Michael Procter.
Mayor Procter passed away on August 31, 2023, at the age of 84. He was first elected to his mayoral role in 1986, and was then acclaimed to that position in 1989, 1992, and again in 1995. After his time in Peace River, Mayor Procter moved to BC, living most recently on Vancouver Island.
His service to our community and residents had major positive impacts that we continue to benefit from today, including the significant role he played in the pulp mill being established in Peace River.
Our thoughts are with Mayor Procter’s family and friends. We have lowered Town flags to half mast, in recognition of his contribution to our community. There is no funeral service being held.
