Share This Obituary

Pete was born in Paterson New Jersey in 1936 to the parents of Katherine and Peter Zdanis Sr. He has a younger brother Tom.

Pete was originally employed as an electronics technician for tele communications by NJ Bell before moving to South Florida where the company was acquired by AT&T. Through co-workers, he met his wife Arleen who also worked at NJ Bell.

Arleen & Pete were married in 1960 and bought their first home in Wayne NJ. Four years later their daughter Renée was born. Their son Darrin was born two years after her. Pete was also a father-in-law to Mark (Renee’s husband), grandfather to Nicolette and Ross, and an uncle to Paul, Kurt, & Keith.

In the early 80’s the Zdanis family moved to Tequesta FL. In 2014, Pete and his wife relocated to Clermont FL to be closer to their son Darrin who was living in Orlando FL.

Pete had a full life. He loved fishing, boating, and the ocean (including cruises). Among other things, he also enjoyed gardening, playing the organ, and attending automobile shows.

At the end, we do not believe Pete was in much pain. He died peacefully with his son by his side.

In memory of Pete, memorials may be made to the American Heart Association, American Cancer Society or to Cornerstone Hospice.
