MILFORD – MILFORD- On June 13, 2014 Leo John Pete went home to be with his lord. Leo was born on September 6, 1944 in Old Town, the son of, Raymond E. and Pauline (Guay) Pete.
Leo was a much loved teacher of English and Director of Adult Education for 32 years before he transitioned to his second love of working with computers. He became the sales manager for a computer store where
he was affectionately known by many as the “Old Man”. Leo was very involved in his church where
he encouraged fellow worshipers with a “moment of manna” and quoting a favorite scripture, “This is
the day that the lord has made, we will rejoice and be glad in it”.
Leo is survived by his wife of 46 years Jeannine (Soucie) Pete, son and daughter in law, David and Trisha Pete of Old Town, daughter, Jennifer Pete of Bradley, and son and daughter in law, Daniel and Danielle Pete of Greenville, South Carolina, four grandchildren, Brandon Emerson, Rhiannon and Caroline Pete, Evangeline Pete, four brothers, Arthur and Janet Pete, Robert Pete, Donald Pete, Ray and Debbie Pete, two sisters, Paulette and Clarence Theriault, and Debbie and Bill Sibley, and several nieces and nephews.
Leo’s family would like to give special thanks to the staff of Orono Commons for the loving care he received. A memorial celebration of his life will be held at Pathway Wesleyan Church, 185 Harlow St. Bangor on Friday, June 27th at 6pm. Notes of condolences can be left at www.birminghamfuneralhome.com
