Peter J. Nowlan, 87, of Riverview, NB passed away at his residence, with his wife by his side, in Riverview on Friday, May 19, 2023. Born in Moncton, he was the son of the late Joseph and Barbara Nowlan.

Donations in Peter's memory may be made to the Friends of the Moncton Hospital.
The family thanks the nurses of the New Brunswick Extramural Program for their understanding and compassion.
Peter served in the RCAF for four years, and then worked as an air traffic controller for 30 years in Gander, NL, and in Ottawa, and completed his career as Operations Manager at the Moncton Area Control Center.
He is remembered as a kind and gentle man who always had a new and interesting story to tell about his life and adventures. He owned a Tiger Moth biplane that he flew across the English channel, he met the Queen of the Netherlands, and he once won a sportscar in a poker game.
He will be missed terribly, and be in our hearts forever.
