Peter Sheridan

Pearl River, NY - Peter F. Sheridan, 83, formerly of Pearl River, NY, died peacefully December 26, 2017, surrounded by his loving family. Born in the Bronx, NY on December 2, 1934 to the late Peter C. and Marcella (Mahedy) Sheridan, Peter attended St. Frances of Rome School, Mount Saint Michael Academy, and Manhattan College (Class of 1956), all in the Bronx, NY. He was an electrical engineer by degree, and worked as a sales engineer and manufacturers' representative for electrical equipment companies, serving New York Metropolitan Area utilities for over 50 years. With characteristic courage, imagination, integrity and intelligence, Pete founded and was Principal and President of Peter F. Sheridan, Inc., a very successful enterprise for over 30 years.

Pete's trademarks were his boundless optimism, contagious enthusiasm and senses of humor, fairness, honor and generosity. He put those qualities to great use as a coach and officer in the Pearl River Little League and Pee Wee Buccaneers football programs, as well as the St. Margaret School CYO basketball program. Pete served for many years as a member of the St. Margaret Parish Council, as well as on the Board of the Pearl River Nauraushaun Swim Club. Pete loved life and he loved people, and brought light and happiness everywhere he went, from the Bronx, to Pearl River, to his retirement home on Long Beach Island.

Predeceased by his beloved wife, Josephine (nee Biggins), Pete is survived by his devoted children; Peter T. Sheridan of Pearl River, NY, Thomas F. Sheridan (Vincent Walsh) of Washington, DC, Catherine Lawlor (John), of Little Rock, AR, Ann Sheridan of Manahawkin, NJ and Maureen Sheridan of Nyack, NY, and his sister, Ann Sheridan (Paul McAndrew) of Coopersburg, PA. He was the cherished and esteemed "Poppy" to Jack, Cara and Colleen Lawlor of Little Rock, AR and Tyler Steinbrunn of Manahawkin, NJ, and is loved by numerous nieces and nephews, as well as cousins from Arizona to Ireland.
