Granville, NY — On January 16, 2019, after a really happy day, Peter L Ehntholt, Jr. left this world unexpectedly, quickly and without pain. He was the first born son of Peter L. Ehntholt, Sr. and Hazel [Hoyt] Ehntholt.
Peter L Ehntholt chose and lived a simple life. His greatest joys came from spending time and adventures with his family. He was a 3rd generation child-of-the-outdoors; spent his youth hunting and fishing with his dad and brother, and then with his own children. His walls were covered with Whitetail trophies and each had its own story. Pete had a colorful, charismatic personality that was bigger than life. His quick smile was disarming. He always had a joke to share; was always willing to help a stranger. He wasn’t afraid to stand his ground or voice an opinion, and yet was a kind and humble man. He knew everyone, but those that he counted as true friends had the privilege of knowing him his sincere warmth and wit. Pete’s love for Stewart’s coffee was legendary and he made many friends and acquaintances by frequenting shops throughout the area. His was a life well lived, and he will truly be missed by all.
While Pete was predeceased by his father and best friend Peter, he is survived by his beloved mother Hazel [Truthville, NY]; his children Nancy Weber [and Matt, Parachute, CO] Peter III [Granville, NY] Daniel [and Megan, Salem, NY] Zachary Clippinger [Granville, NY] Jacob Clippinger [Salem, NY] Brian [Granville, NY] Brandon [Granville, NY] and his grandchildren; Dehlyla, Mystin, Cynthia, Patrick, Aleah, Daniel Jr, Brodie, Bryce, Kane, Blake, Brantley, Eli, Micah, and Mason; his brothers Ronald [and Sherry, Granville, NY] John [Granville, NY] his sisters, Gail West [Fort Ann, NY] Connie Taylor [Middle Granville, NY] Karen Noble [and John, Hampton, NY] and Patti Baptie [Truthville, NY]
