With great sadness we announce the passing of Peter Marrese from cancer at age 72. Beloved husband to Barbara for over 40 years. Proud father to Joseph and Andrew. Devoted Brother to his late sister Rose and younger sister Phyllis. He will be sorely missed by the colleagues, clients and dear friends he leaves after a vibrant 50-year career in sales. He loved every minute.
Peter’s longstanding involvement in the Kingsway and Royal York baseball leagues, where he coached both sons for many seasons and won many a championship, will be remembered with pride. Through his passions for music, skiing, motorcycles and classic cars – particularly his beloved 1964 Ford Mustang – he lived life to the fullest.
Always putting his family first, Peter will be remembered for his optimistic outlook on life, his legendary and endless stories of life, love and laughter, and his unwavering sense of integrity.
The family would like to extend their sincere thanks to the dedicated and compassionate staff at St. Joseph’s Health Centre.
