Obituary for Peter James Harradine

Peter James Harradine passed away in Mount Vernon on February 27, 2018. Peter was born and educated in England, where he began his career in aeronautical structures engineering in 1948. He later relocated to Montreal, Canada, where he worked at Canadair, before joining Boeing in 1962. He spent 32 years there and was fortunate to play a part in the design and development of the 727, 737, 747, 757 and 777 airplanes. Along the way he was privileged to work with many of the best minds in the industry, from whom he learned so much.
His main passion and focus was always on the structural safety – through strict design, manufacturing processes and in-service maintenance throughout each airplane’s life. He served on several Industry/Regulatory Committees dealing with aging airplane challenges and the need for effective long-term oversight of the world’s commercial fleets.
After his retirement in 1994, he spent the next 16 years as a consultant to Boeing and several other aviation concerns.
He also enjoyed messing and tinkering around with boats and owned several over the years on which he spent many happy hours with his wife, children and grandchildren in the San Juan and Canadian Gulf Islands.
Lucky in his career, he was equally fortunate in his home life. He enjoyed 27 years with his first wife, Jeanne, until her death in 1978, with whom he had his daughters, Kay and Jane. He is survived by his second wife, Kathleen (Anne), with whom he spent 37 happy and adventurous years, and which brought her 3 daughters, Susan, Judy and Alison to an extended family.
Peter is survived by all 5 children, their husbands, 7 grand children and 6 great grandchildren. He was always proud of them and their many achievements- but probably never said so often enough.
