On December 3, 2011, Pierre Daniel Eaton passed away in his home. Born in France on October 6, 1935 to Marguerite and Richard Eaton. He was the eldest of seven children. He graduated from Sidwell Friends School and attended George Washington University in Washington D.C. He had many ground breaking years in the radio broadcast industry as the voice of 1600 WINX radio, in Rockville, MD. He was also the Vice President of the United Broadcast Company.
In 1985 he relocated to Naples, Florida with his beloved wife June. Pierre and June became actively involved in various charitable organizations around town such as the Cancer Alliance of Naples, Meals on Wheels, Habitat for Humanity, and Youth Haven. Through these organizations he attempted to make life better for others. They traveled the world and loved to entertain.
Pierre's charismatic personality and radio voice lit up a room as soon as he entered. He loved his friends and always was there for them in times of need. He loved being with them on the golf course and tennis court. He was known to tell a great joke and make women blush. He was a supportive father and enjoyed watching his grandsons at their sporting activities.
He will be greatly missed by his son and wife, Pierre and Maria Eaton, and their children Pierre and Andre of Naples, Fl. As well as his daughter and husband Nicole and Richard Jessup, and their children Alyssa, Haley, and Aidan of Ashburn, VA. He is preceded in death by his beloved wife, June and his two brothers.
A memorial gathering will be held on Saturday, December 17, 2011 at 11 a.m. at Hodges Funeral Home. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests contributions to be made in his name to the Salvation Army.
