Pete Marshall Stauffer, 84, of Leicester, died on Sunday, July 9, 2017, at his residence.
A native of Trumbull Co., OH, Pete was a son of the late Clarence and Marjorie Ligg Snauffer.
Pete was a veteran of the U.S. Army, serving in Korea. He retired from Nabisco, where he worked in delivery. After living in Florida for a number of years, Pete made his home on Hanlon Mountain in Leicester. Everyone in Florida pegged him as a "city slicker" who would return home to Miami, but Pete showed them and lived on the mountain for the rest of his life. He was very active within the community, and was the acting President of the Hanlon Mountain Estates HOA. The wildlife and other animals on his property gave him great joy as he captured bear, coyotes, and all others in his photography.
Mr. Stauffer will be missed and remembered fondly by his friends and neighbors in the Hanlon Mountain community.
A celebration of Pete's life will be held at 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday at Green Hills Cemetery.
Groce Funeral Home on Patton Ave. is handling the arrangements.
