Peter DeVita passed away on November 6, 2013 from respiratory and cardiac illness. Peter was 89 years old and resided in Port Jefferson Station, New York.

Peter tragically lost his father as a teenager. As a young man during WWII, Peter volunteered to serve in the military (he was exempt from the draft being the only child of a widow) and proudly served as a US Marine in the Pacific.
