February 3, 1975 ~ April 8, 2018 (age 43)

Peter “Pete” E.  Purington passed away on April 8, 2018 in Falmouth, Maine. He was 43.

Pete was born on February 3, 1975 in Augusta, Maine to his mother Fern Purington and was later adopted by Dana Purington, Sr., the man who would forever be his Dad. As a young man Pete excelled in hockey and was an avid hunter, right by his Dads side. Always dreaming of being part of the band Guns N Roses; he graduated from Gardiner High School and followed rock and roll bands around for several years but never went long without touching base at home.

Pete never married nor had any children. He is survived by his mother, Fern Purington, siblings, Sheri Purington, Dana Purington Jr., Devyn Purington, Marcella Bernard, Ashley Bernard and Bianca Bernard.  He is predeceased by his Dad, Dana Purington Sr., and brother Adam Purington.

Pete had his struggles in life but loved his family. He is finally at peace and will be missed very much. There will be no service but there will be a small family gathering to spread his ashes. In lieu of flowers or donations, condolences may be sent to 175 Capen Rd., Gardiner, Maine 04345
