Obituary for Peter James Aldrich

After a 10 month struggle with cancer, Peter James Aldrich, age 62, passed away peacefully, surrounded by his loved ones, at home on Saturday, October 28, 2017.

He was born on December 16, 1954 in Teaneck, New Jersey to Charles James Aldrich and Joan (Raffaelli) Aldrich Randall. He was a 1972 graduate of Palm Beach Gardens High, a 1976 graduate of University of Florida, and a 1981 graduate of Stetson Law School. He practiced as a litigation attorney locally for 35 years but his real passion was teaching. He greatly valued lifelong learning and education and taught with an elegant simplicity. He had a keen mind and a unique way of looking at the world. He taught Gospel lessons at his church and US Government and Economics lessons in the community. Over the years, people privately approached him and expressed how these lessons had influenced their lives for good.

Peter enjoyed the beauty of a quiet, ordinary life. He cherished his wife and family, made his grandchildren laugh, gardened every morning, solved crossword puzzles, played the piano, enjoyed the fine arts, and drank a lot of hot chocolate. He was thoughtful, encouraging, and positive. He was always focused on caring for those around him.

Peter is survived by his wife, Maura, his children Meredith Ek (Shaun), David Aldrich (Ashley), Meghan Gomez, and Nicole Gomez, 8 grandchildren, and extended family.

Funeral services will be held on Thursday, November 2, 2017 at 11 am at St. Patrick Catholic Church 13591 Prosperity Farms Road Palm Beach Gardens, Florida 33410.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be sent to Hospice, Hillsdale College, or The Acton Institute.
