Obituary

Peter Mundy died at home, as he had wished, on March 18 after a long battle with cancer. He had celebrated his 88th birthday with family on March 3.

He was the only child of Margaret Raye Mundy and Floyd Mundy , Jr., and lived in Scarsdale, N.Y.until his parents divorced. He and his Mother then moved to Norwalk, Ct. From his early childhood every summer was spent in Boothbay Harbor, Maine with his Grandparents , William and Clara Raye. Sailing and power boating were his passion. ( His GreatGrandfather was a Sea Captain, sailing out of Fairhaven, Canada and later , Eastport, Maine.)

Pete spent 2 entire years in B.B.H.with his Mother during World War Il while his stepfather, Louis Harrod was serving overseas. He went to the 2 room School that is now the Lions Club building. He ultimately attended Bowdoin College, and was Goalie on their Hockey Team. After graduating in 1953, he took a position in Boston, taking advantage of his vacation to spend 3 weeks on his Grandfathers boat.
He met his future wife, Jackie Slaughter, while visiting his Mother in Norwalk. He used to boast that he married “ a Gal from Kalamazoo” as the hit song then described. ( She had just relocated from Michigan to become a Teacher in New Canaan, Ct. ). They married in 1955 and Pete accepted a job with the IBM corporation in N.Y. Twenty years later they moved to Massachusetts, where Pete became Director of Personnel for the Northeast Region and Canada. .

After Pete’s Mother, who was living in Boothbay Harbor died in 1983, Jackie urged him to take early Retirement, so he could get back to his Maine roots. They built a home in 1985, named Fairhaven, on land that had belonged to his Grandparents. His passion was still boating, and summers were spent cruising the Maine Coast.

Like his Grandfather, Pete became active in the community...driving for Fish; serving as Treasurer, and later as President of the YMCA ; Commodore of the BBH Yacht Club ; Chairman of the St. Andrews Hospital Board; and a Trustee of the BBH Congregational Church. He and Jackie managed to travel, ascribing to the philosophy of “ see America first”. Their 50th wedding anniversary was spent on an Alaskan cruise. They also spent time living on their Grand Banks trawler in Florida. He was proud that he had navigated their boat to and from Florida 4 times without ever scraping bottom!

Family and friends describe Pete as a humble man, with a great sense of humor...often laughing at himself as well. He enjoyed golfing with his good friends, walking 2 miles every day on the Y track, and cooking lobsters for all visitors. He cherished his wife of nearly 64 years, and his family. He loved animals , both his own pets over the years, and the birds and wildlife in the Cove and wooded areas around their home. As Jackie says, “ Pete was one of the Good Guys of this world. He always felt that because he had been so blessed in his life, he should try to give back to the Community and those less fortunate than he.”

Besides his wife, Pete is survived by son Peter P.Mundy and his wife Ellen; daughter, Margaret Cowe; 7 grandchildren; and 4 great grandchildren. His Boothbay Harbor cousins( Bill and Jan Hamblen, Betty and Ted Repa, and David and Susi Hamblen,) were to him the “brothers and sisters “he never had.

A Memorial Service to celebrate Pete's life will be held at 2 p.m., May 11th at the Congregational Church of Boothbay Harbor, 125 Townsend Ave. Boothbay Harbor, ME

In lieu of flowers, contributions in Pete's memory may be made to Congregational Church of Boothbay Harbor, P.O. Box 468, Boothbay Harbor, ME 04538, Boothbay Region YMCA, P.O.

Pete certainly was one of the "good guys." He not only put up with, but enjoyed the company of the Slaughter Family. ( Jackie's side of the family tree). Even though there were a few "nuts" on that side, they sure knew how to have a good time and laugh a lot. His love of boating was evident in a video I saw of a boat trip he took my parents on in the late 80's. The narration of the coastline was so interesting and there were many fellow boating friends they introduced while on that trip. As a second cousin we didn't spend as much time together as we would have liked but my Mom was always close to Pete and Jackie and loved them as close as siblings. Rest in peace Pete, and Sail On forever.
