Remembering a community stalwart on the 10th anniversary of his passing

Peter Athelstan Wilkinson

The name Peter Wilkinson resonates loudly for a generation of Montrealers who remembers a giant of a man that stood tall in the arena of broadcasting, entertainment and community building.
This month, relatives and friends are remembering and celebrating him on the 10th anniversary of his passing on August 29, 2012 at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in his native Barbados.
In the close to 20 years that Wilkinson spent in Quebec, many knew him for his work, first as a producer at CJFM Radio, then at CJAD 800 AM where he served as senior producer for more than a decade and a half.
His broadcasting credentials are also just as illustrious in Barbados where he started at Rediffusion in the early 1960s as a program operator then went back to work as the morning man at Star Radio for many years.
In paying tribute to his dad, Guy Perry remembers a dedicated father who was hard-working and a joy to be around.
“He was a proud man and had a natural ability to bring out the best in people,” he says. “I remember also that he was very popular in the community and dedicated to it.”
After leaving Barbados and travelling to England, Wilkinson settled in Montreal in the late 1960s and found his way into the ranks of CJAD 800, the leading English-speaking station.
He built an extended and well-respected career as a producer, working with stalwarts such as Jack Finnigan, Paul Reid, Andy Barry among others.
Harry Thurton, one of his compatriots, also worked at CJAD and was a veteran of radio and television in Montreal by the time Wilkinson arrived, remembers his friend as extremely hardworking and very meticulous.
“Peter enjoyed radio and spent a lot of time at the station, making sure that everything was just right. He was also very community minded.”
Gemma Raeburn-Baynes, another close friend, partnered with Wilkinson to establish the Miss Black Quebec Pageant, which was a source of social bonding and empowerment to young participants.
Wilkinson served as its vice-president and helped Raeburn-Baynes build the pageant into a community institution in the 1970s and 1980s.
In 1988, he returned to Barbados and remained in broadcasting until 1992, when he retired from Rediffusion.
He died on August 29, after a long battle with cancer.
He is being remembered by his two children, Guy and Angelique and their children Shaquille and Darius Perry and Michel and Leila and great granddaughter, Wynntir (Darius).
