Peter was born and raised in Arran, Saskatchewan. Bill and Anna Woytkiw welcomed their son on June 25, 1932. Peter was educated at the Evadale School.
On November 7, 1970, Peter married Margaret Ann Popoff of the Thunderhill Area, the love of his life.

They lived in Thompson, MB, and Oxbow, SK until settling down in Swan River, where he worked for the Town as a laborer, operating the garbage truck, water meters, running the sweeper, and operating the tandem trucks.
Peter’s interest included having coffee with his friends, going hunting, which he loved, to making sure his vehicles were kept immaculately cleaned.
