Peter T. Barbatsuly, 89, formerly of Plattekill, NY passed away peacefully in Albuquerque.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Theodore and Katina Barbatsuly, and his brother, John T. Barbatsuly.

He is survived by his sister, Despina Helen Paulson, currently of Plattekill, and many loving nieces & nephews.

Peter was born and raised in the mid-Hudson Valley (New York), and had a passion for nature. He was an avid hiker, rock and gem collector, and constant visitor to the local state parks and the Herkimer Diamond Mines. He also enjoyed learning about his Greek heritage and donated many items to Hellenic Museums.

He worked as a construction engineer for major projects in the northeast, and even Africa. His extensive travels brought Peter out west, where he volunteered in various National Parks helping clear trails. He moved to Montana and then New Mexico, enjoying the outdoors at every opportunity. He was an active member of his community and mountaineering everywhere he lived.

There will be a memorial service held on Thursday, February 4th from 4 - 6pm at the chapel of Direct Funeral Services, 2919 4TH Street NW, Albuquerque, NM.

Peter was a Legacy member of The Nature Conservancy, and any donations made in his honor will continue to support their efforts.
