Obituary for Peter Burgess

Peter  Burgess
Peter A. Burgess - Newburgh and Punta Gorda, Florida – Peter Albert Burgess, 91, passed away August 22, 2018, at his home. He was born in Bangor, February 7, 1927, the son of Peter and June (Sandborn) Burgess.

Peter was a resident of Newburgh for 69 years, and wintered in Punta Gorda, Florida. Peter spent a year as a merchant marine, eventually being medically discharged. He retired as the Director of the Motor Pool for the City of Bangor after 35 years. Peter enjoyed being outside, hunting, and fishing. In 2001, Peter had a close call when a fishing boat he was aboard capsized. He survived the incident by floating on his back for over an hour before being rescued, despite not knowing how to swim and not wearing a life jacket.

In addition to his parents, Peter was predeceased by his first wife, Shirley; his second wife, Enid; son, Keith; brother, Harold; and sister, Jeanette. Peter is survived by his sons, Steven and his wife Reina, Brent and his wife Barb; sisters, Pat Melvin of Belfast, Polly and her husband Richie Rittlinger of Kansas; grandsons, Peter and fiancée Jenn MacNab of Rhode Island, and Paul of Hampden; Step-grandchildren, Danny and Katie; step-great-grandchildren, McKayla, Brayden, Brantley and Braxton; as well as many nieces and nephews.

At Peter’s request services will be private. A burial will take place at Knowlton Cemetery in Newburgh at a later date, where Peter will be laid rest along with his first wife, Shirley, and his son, Keith. A big thank you to Beacon Hospice, as well as Christine, for the great care Peter received during his last days at home.
