Pius V. "Pete" Pautenis, Jr., 74, of Littlestown, passed away on Monday, December 19, 2016 at his home, surrounded by his loving family. He was the husband of Ruth Ann (Hall) Pautenis, to whom he was married for 53 years. Born September 23, 1942, in Hanover, PA, he was the son of the late Pius V. Pautenis, Sr. and Catherine E. (Wagner) Pautenis. Pete was a 1960 graduate of Delone Catholic High School and attended Mount St. Mary's College. He later completed his degree in Computer Science at York College and was a member of the Alpha Sigma Lambda National Honor Society. He was employed as a Lab Technician at Phillips Lighting in Littlestown. Pete is survived by two daughters, Daena M. Creel and husband, David, of York Springs and Suzanne M. Thompson and husband, Daryl, of Gettysburg and two grandsons, Andrew Thompson and Jacob Thompson, both of Gettysburg. He is also survived by two sisters, Carole Hymiller and husband, Jim, of Wesley Chapel, FL and Sophia Studer and husband, David, of Bedford, TX; one brother, Edward Pautenis and wife, Jenn, of Ft. Pierce, FL; and many nieces, nephews, cousins, and close friends. He was a member of St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Littlestown and loved his church family. Pete served on Church Council, taught Sunday School and was very involved in many church activities over the years. He was also a member of the Littlestown Borough Council for 8 years and served a term as Council President. Pete's interests were diverse and included photography, restoring antique autos, NASCAR Racing, and Star Trek, but he especially loved the classic doo-wop music of the 1950's. Pete and Ruth loved to dance and they enjoyed going to concerts and meeting their favorite artists. His charm and unique sense of humor will be greatly missed.
