Roland (Peter) Wacker Obituary
Roland (Peter) Wacker
April 26, 1926 - June 9, 2014
Resident of Los Gatos
Roland (Peter) Wacker was born April 26, 1926 in Karlsruhe Baden, Germany to Wilhelm and Rosa Wacker. He had one sister Helga who with his parents preceded him in death. Peter Wacker was a World War II veteran, serving as a submarine pilot. When his submarine was sunk, the experience provided plentiful remembrances for loved ones and close friends.
Peter is survived by his beloved wife Doris, sister-in-law Ursula Moessner, a niece Monika Von Griessenbeck and is no less fondly remembered by countless friends and colleagues in Germany and the United States. A personal creed that Peter repeated countless times speaks well of that love and appreciation he had for family and friends: "We stick together."
A memorial service in honor of Peter will be held at Faith Lutheran Church, 16548 Ferris Avenue, Los Gatos, on Saturday, June 21st at 11:00am. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Santa Clara County Humane Society
