ENOSBURG- Peter K. Wetherby, age 60, passed away on Tuesday, December 6th, 2022, with his family by his side.
He was born in Burlington on May 15th, 1962, to the late Bernard and Shelby (Levick) Wetherby. He is predeceased by his sisters Mary Ann and Linda Wetherby.
Peter graduated from Missisquoi Valley Union. He worked as a Forklift Operator for Kaytec for 21 years.
Peter could always be found with a beer, a scratch ticket, and a smoke, while preparing to tell a good story. He was a proud Eagle Scout as a teenager, with his father as the scout master. He loved to cook at the boy scout jamborees. Peter's favorite past times were hunting (with his 30-06), fishing, a long drive, cooking, and working. He was an incredibly proud father. Peter never missed a home game, and everything he did was for his boys. His door was always open to anyone that needed a meal or place to lay their head at night. His house was a safe and fun place for anyone. No matter what life threw at him, he never quit.
Within his later years, he really focused on taking care of his family. His grandchildren were his world. The kids could always count on Papa to show up with a bag of candy for each of them. Peter firmly believed that kids should be kids, work ethic should be hard, and at the end of the day life is a party.
He is survived by his children, Matthew Wetherby and his fiance Michelle, Dustin Wetherby and his wife Chelsee, and Glen Wetherby; grandchildren, Nicco, Sophia, Sienna, Harper, Luca, Keelie, Kaelynn, Kylah, Izabella, Dekota, and James; his brother David Wetherby.; and his dog Jager.
He also leaves behind boys that became his sons, James, Daryl, Tommy, Mikey and his wife Tara, and their children, Zach, Owen, and Ben.
In respecting Peter's wishes, services will be held privately at the convenience of the family.
In lieu of flowers, donations in Peter's memory can be made to your local Boy Scouts of America.
