Peter C. Petrole, age 52, of Wilmington, DE, formerly Tresckow, PA died suddenly on April 8, 2012.

Peter was a devoted and loving husband to his wife Julie Sarmanian, loving father to son Peter F. and wife Katie Petrole, of Northampton, PA and daughter Kyra Leigh Petrole, of Canandaigua, NY, and grandfather to Bella and Brooklyn Petrole. Peter's companion King James the cat misses his buddy.

Peter was an avid outdoorsman who savored the earth's gifts. He loved camping, hunting, hiking, fishing, beach time, boating, biking, skiing and peacefully watching wildlife. Peter designed and built an artisan backyard fence that, along with his landscaping, arborist and gardening skills created a backyard sanctuary that was home to family, friends and the birds. Peter was a master craftsman whose talents included carpentry and fine woodworking.

Peter touched many lives in profound ways. With family and friends, he could be found playing golf in the dewy morning, watching baseball in the afternoon sun and cheering on his Jets at night.

Peter enriched the lives of countless friends and family. His loss is countered by many rich memories.
