Peter T. Coyne
COYNE Peter T. Coyne, our beloved father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend, died peacefully surrounded by his family after a courageous battle against cancer Thursday, February 26, 2009. Peter will be sadly missed by his loving sister, Sheilagh and devoted daughter, Jennifer and her mother, Judy. Peter will be lovingly remembered by his cherished grandsons, Joey, P.J. and John as well as his son-in-law, John, his nephew and nieces and their families and many dear, devoted friends. Peter was born in New York City and later moved to Stamford with his parents, the late Thomas and Bertha Coyne. Peter was also predeceased by his beloved son, Tommy and a brother, Tom. Peter's strong work ethic carried him far in his career in sales and marketing. His determination and drive later propelled him towards business pursuits in the livery industry. Peter's professionalism, charm and keen wit accompanied his clients on many a journey. What often started out as a business relationship blossomed into friendships that he cherished. Peter was also an avid fisherman who took great delight in telling many a "fish tale." His gentle, warm ways were apparent with any encounter with a four legged critter. Peter found great strength through out his life in his faith and his contributions to Christian organizations were many. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated Tuesday at 10 a.m. in Assumption Church, 98 Riverside Avenue Westport. A private family interment will be held at a later date. Friends may call Monday March 2nd from 4 to 8 p.m. in the Leo P. Gallagher and Son Funeral Home, 2900 Summer Street, Stamford. Contributions in Peters name may be made to MSKCC P.O. Box 27106 New York, New York 10087. Family and friends who are unable to attend may light a virtual candle, share photos or stories by visiting "You can shed tears that he is gone or you can smile because he has lived"

Pete was a great man with a big heart! I'll never forget his kindness when he gave me a personalized tour of the Big Apple with my Dad! The stories I've heard over the years are awesome!! He lived a FULL life!

For over 50 years Pete and I have shared a friendship. Our hearts and hands have been joined. We have laughed and cried together. Few people know what a great person this man has been. He has touched many lives, including mine, my wife, children and grandchildren. I thank God we were so fortunate to spend quality time together on his visits to our home in Florida. I will miss Pete, but will never forget the memories.
