Track and Structure Shop dedicated to Peter’s memory
The late Mr. Peter Pavlovski was well known to his TTC friends and co-workers for always saying, “Don’t you know by now? I’m nice to everybody.” He was caring and approachable to everyone that knew him in the workplace.
On Sept. 12, in a solemn ceremony at Greenwood Complex that was attended by Track and Structure crews, TTC Officials and the Pavlovski family, the late Road Master’s words and memory were permanently dedicated on a large plaque that will be hung in the Track and Structure Shop.
Gina Pavlovski, Peter’s wife, and Night Shift Subway Track Welder Steve Romios unveiled the large plaque commemorating his life and service to the TTC. CEO Andy Byford accompanied Mr. Pavlovski’s father, Krume, and the Pavlovski children, Kelsey, Andrew and Marissa.
“I can’t think of a better spot to dedicate to Peter than the Track and Structure Shop. He loved this place and he loved working for the people here,” said COO Gary Shortt.
Mr. Pavlovski lost his life on the job on Sept. 14, 2012 at the age of 49. He was a 22-year veteran and Road Master in the Subway/SRT Track Section. This Sunday marks the second anniversary of his tragic death on the southbound tracks near of Yorkdale Station. Two co-workers were taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
“The fact that there are so many of Peter’s friends and colleagues here today says more than ever that Peter hasn’t been forgotten. He will never be forgotten,” Byford said.
