Peter Christopher Thayer, age 52, of Quakertown PA, passed away on Saturday, January 15, 2022. He was the husband of Dee (Dorothy) Clymer Thayer, his soul mate, with whom he shared 26 years together, including 23 years of marriage. Born in Abington PA, he was a son of Franklyn Thayer of Eagan MN and the late Mary Barbara Thayer.
Peter was a student at Burnsville High School in Burnsville MN and a proud veteran of the US Navy. He earned his GED during his military service. He was Director of Operations of several nursing homes early in his career, including the Sisters of St. Joseph in Flourtown PA. In more recent years, he owned and operated his own company, T.K. Atlantic Mechanical in Quakertown.
He enjoyed the outdoors, hunting, camping with his in-laws, watching every movie ever made, traveling, and spending time with his family. He also treasured all his children's events: Whether it be coaching T-ball or baseball for Noah, football and basketball for Frank-Morgan and Noah, Frank-Morgan's military events, and every game, recital, or cheer competition for Nessa and Amber. He also enjoyed creative writing and had a love of beautiful cars and mystery road trips. His day wasn't complete without spending time on the couch with his beloved dogs, Wishbone and DaisyMay.
Peter "never met a stranger" and will forever be known for his huge heart and willingness to help anyone in need. He was most at peace at the family cabin, at the beach, or on the water, surrounded by his family. His greatest dream was to retire in St. Croix with his wife.
In addition to his wife and father, he is survived by two sons, Frank-Morgan and Noah, both of Quakertown; two daughters, Nessa of Quakertown and Amber Vogel and her husband Matt of Indiana; two brothers, Jonathan and Jamey and their spouses; three grandchildren, Connor, Marie, and Carter; father-in-law, Charles Clymer; uncles Charles, Kenneth, and David; his Aunt Christine; and several nieces, nephews, and cousins. In addition to his mother, Peter is predeceased by his mother-in-law, Jean, and aunts Melissa and Dana.
