Buchanan, Peter 1964 - 2018
Peter Joseph Buchanan arrived on June 27, 1964 at La Chapelle-St. Mesmin in the Loire Valley of France, during Dad's three-year stint there in the U.S Army. The family returned to the United States when Peter was a baby and he grew in Elyria, Ohio. Pete attended Elyria Catholic High School, Embry Riddle Aeronautical University and Ohio State University, graduating with a degree in engineering in 1989. Peter was a longtime engineer with MTD Products in Valley City, Ohio, a job he loved, earning multiple patents. A band of brothers traveled with Pete throughout his life. Along with his family, they supported him through good times and bad, including his battle with glioblastoma. Peter, now of Brunswick, Ohio, completed his journey on February 19, 2018. He is survived by his cherished wife, Melissa L. Buchanan; and loving family including his mother, Ann H. Buchanan; three sisters; one brother; two nephews; and four stepchildren. Peter, you are much loved and greatly missed. A Celebration of Life will be in the funeral home 3 p.m. Saturday, March 3, 2018. Visitation Saturday 1-3 p.m. at the A. Ripepi and Sons, 18149 Bagley Road, Middleburg Heights, Ohio, 44130.
