Peter R. Maltese | Republican-American




OAKVILLE – Peter R. Maltese, 31 of Oakville, died suddenly at home on Tuesday, October 25, 2022.

Peter was born on September 10, 1991 in Salem, Massachusetts, the son of Peter C. Maltese. He graduated from Watertown High School and attended Porter & Chester Institute, where he studied auto mechanics.

Peter was a loving father and was always happiest spending time with his children. If Peter was spending time with his children or helping to care for his grandfather who he took up residence with, he could always be found “walking around” the house. He enjoyed taking apart and fixing gadgets of all types.

Left to honor his memory and cherish his legacy are his three children, Carter and Brayden Maltese of Watertown, and Payton Maltese of Waterbury. He also leaves behind his father, Peter C. Maltese and his wife Chris, of Florida; his paternal grandparents with whom he made his home, Vincent and Marianne Maltese of Oakville; his brother, Christopher Maltese of Waterbury, his uncle, Vincent Maltese III of Winter Haven, Florida, his great-uncle, Richard C. Straiton and his wife Sharon, of Bethel; her great-aunt, Debbie Curtiss and her husband Robert, of Meriden; his great-uncle, John Maltese and his wife Sherry, of Glastonbury; as well as several cousins, extended family members and many friends.

A memorial gathering for Peter will be held Wednesday, November 2, 2022 from 5-7 p.m. at Casey-O’Neill Funeral Home 742 Main St., Oakville, CT 06779.

If you are able, however, attending a service is the thoughtful, caring, and supportive thing to do.
