Obituary for Peter Thomas Brander

Peter Thomas Brander, 63, passed away suddenly, on Thursday, August 15, 2019, while fishing in Juneau Alaska, with his wife Kim by his side. Peter was a resident of Merrimac MA, until moving to SC, in April of 2018.

Peter worked for the Railroad, in Boston, from the age of 18 until his retirement, in 2016. He was the Union President there for 20 years.

Peter worked hard and played harder.

He was an avid fisherman, played pool in many MA leagues, tinkering around the house, and was a Harley enthusiast. He loved riding beside his wife. Peter made a 5-week cross country trip (from MA to CA and back, a few year ago) with one of his best friends. He enjoyed going to many bike week events from Laconia NH to Daytona, and Sturgis, several times, with his wife and good friends. He was a huge New England Sports fan, as well!

Peter was the first person to help anyone that needed help and wanted nothing, in return (except Oatmeal cookies). There was nothing he wouldn’t do for anyone! He had a heart of gold and will be missed by everyone who knew him.

He leaves behind his wife, Kim, who he would refer to as HIS KIMBERLY, of SC. Two sons: Robert Lincoln of MA. Nathan Natola and his wife, Suzana, of NH. A daughter, Julie Jenks of NH.
His sister, Karen and husband, John Kuespert of NC. Two brothers, Robert and his wife, Cathleen Brander of MA, and Mark Brander of NJ. Brother-in-law, Mark Natola and his wife Gwendolyn of NH. Sister-in-law, Doreen and her husband, John Barrett, of NH. Sister-in-law, Leigh Natola and Mother-in-law, June Natola both of MA.

He leaves his nieces, Heather, Libby, Patty, Allie, Alexis, Jeudy, Karen, Anne, and Courtney and his nephews, Thomas, John, and Christopher. Also, many great-nieces and nephews.

Peter was loved to the Moon and back by all of them..

A graveside service was held on 8/24/19 for family and his SC friends.

A Celebration of Life will be held, on October 12, 2019 (details to follow) back in his home state of Massachusetts. Family and friends will come together to Celebrate Peter, at that time.
