Peter Sims Obituary
Sims, Peter

Peter Sims, age 44, passed away on February 20, after a short illness.

He died peacefully surrounded by his parents, Tom and Ann Sims; his brother, Brian Sims and wife, Cheryl; and his sister, Beth Tate and husband, Keith. He leaves behind his nephews, Hayden, Carson, and Alexander whom he loved dearly and who gave him great joy. His life was enriched by his many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. Especially touching his life were his grandparents, Charles and Mary Rose Grummer; his uncle, Mike Sims and his aunt and godmother, Penny Sims Hinton.

Peter was a graduate of St. Pius X High School and a business school graduate of New Mexico State University. He was a supervisor at Sumitomo and then Intel. He left Intel to start his own business. He was one of the many unsung small business heroes in our community who work mightily to employ our neighbors, provide us with services and products and do it with commitment, integrity and skill. Many friends and relatives have comforted the family over the past few weeks with stories about Peter. The word that many repeatedly used to describe him was that he was a kind person. His kindness is his legacy and his kindness is the way we will remember him most of all.

A Memorial Mass will be celebrated Friday, February 24, 2017, 11:00 a.m. at St. John XXIII Catholic Community, 4831 Tramway Ridge Dr. NE, Albuquerque. A celebration and sharing of Peter's story will take place on Saturday, February 25, 2017, 2:00 p.m. at FRENCH - Lomas. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to Animal Humane New Mexico, 615 Virginia St SE, Albuquerque, NM 87108. Please visit our online guestbook for Peter at
