Brother Peter C. Lyne, Society of St. Paul
He treasured the friendships he made throughout his life
On May 14, 2020 God called His faithful servant Brother Peter Lyne, 75, to be by His side.
Born September 4, 1944 and raised in Jersey City by his parents Christopher and Anne (nee Bradley) Lyne, Pete took his vows in 1964 and became a dedicated member of the Society of Saint Paul (SSP).
Brother Pete was called to devote his life to serve Christ and as the National Vocation Director; he in turn led others to find their calling. Brother Pete mainly served in the ministry of promotion of St. Pauls (Alba House) book, which enabled him to formulate countless friendships throughout the United States.
Brother Pete made friends wherever he went. He was a proud member of the Knights of Columbus, Assumption Counsel, Ancient Order of Hibernians, and an honorary member of Rolling Thunder. Brother Pete was proud of his Irish ancestry including having served as Grand Marshal in the 1984 Staten Island St. Patrick's Day Parade.
Brother Pete received countless awards, but what he valued most were the friendships he had made in all facets of his life. He leaves behind his loving family, his cousin Helen (nee Lyne) O'Connor, his nieces, nephews and grand-nieces and nephews, as well as his Brothers and Sisters from the SSP.
Due to the recommended safety measures caused by the coronavirus, funeral services are privately arranged on Tuesday, May 19, 2020 at Matthew Funeral Home, Staten Island. A memorial Mass will be organized at a future date. Brother Pete will be laid to rest at Resurrection Cemetery, Staten Island.
In lieu of flowers, please honor Brother Pete's life work and mission by donating to the Society of St. Paul, 2187 Victory Blvd., Staten Island.
