Peter Bayley O'Brien Obituary
April 15, 1942 - January 6, 2017 Peter Bayley O'Brien, Esq., 74, died on Friday, January 6, 2017 in Burbank, California. Born in Independence, CA to Marcus and Norma O'Brien, Peter grew up in North Hollywood, graduating from North Hollywood H.S. in 1960. He went on to attend the Univ. of Southern California and Southwestern Univ. School of Law, earning his J.D. and practiced law ever since. He had a long term law practice in Beverly Hills, CA, Bauer, O'Brien & Bernstein, and then on his own at the Law Offices of Peter B. O'Brien in Los Angeles, CA. Peter is survived by his wife, Laura O'Brien, Peter's two children, Mark O'Brien and Megan O'Brien, and four grandchildren, Adam, Griffin, Natalie and Emma, along with his extended family from Laura's side, the Duenckels. Laura's sister, Kelly Duenckel, practiced law with Peter. Whether through divine intervention or pure luck, Peter and Laura met running in the North Hollywood Park, CA in 1978. They married on January 2, 1983 and enjoyed a wonderful 34 year marriage, full of mutual love, respect, and "no regrets". Peter most enjoyed hiking and gazing out at the meadow behind his home in his beloved Lake Tahoe. He and Laura hiked every weekend in the Hollywood Hills with a group of friends that continually grew in numbers, in large part due to Peter's charm and keen interest in others. Peter will be remembered by his family and friends as a man who was generous, knowledgeable, could tell a good tale, happy, and full of love. In his practice, Peter was a fierce defender of those in need, many times taking on lost causes because the person simply needed help. Funeral services will be held Sunday, January 15, 2017 at Forest Lawn, 6300 Forest Lawn Drive, with a viewing from 1-4pm and the memorial service at 5pm.
