Peter A. Lizotte of Mattapoisett, passed away peacefully after a brief battle with cancer. Peter is survived by his wife, Julie and their sons, Oliver and Ethan, his parents, Edmund J. and Beatrice J. Lizotte, a brother, Jeffrey, a step-son Andrew Heller, a nephew, Dakota and a niece, Shyanne. He was a dear relative and friend to many.

A successful title examiner across several Counties, Peter was a graduate of Middlebury College and received his Juris Doctor degree from Suffolk Law School. Peter enjoyed the complicated titles and was known for his expertise and thorough research. Peter was an exceptionally devoted father and in raising his sons volunteered as a coach for soccer, baseball, basketball and football youth leagues. Coach Lizotte is best known for his easy demeanor and calming influence. He was also an ardent ORR High School supporter and fan. He could be heard cheering and commenting on the referees across the field. He truly enjoyed watching his sons play sports.

Next to his family, Peter's truest passion was golf. A serious competitor, Peter loved the sport and was content to play in any conditions as well as religiously following tournaments on TV. He joined many leagues and for the last several years was a member of the Wicked Stix at Acushnet River Valley Golf Course. Peter was a great gardener and enjoyed sharing the bounty with family and friends. It was a source of pride to grow so many vegetables. We will all remember his boisterous laugh, easy smile and gentle disposition. Such a great man called home way too soon.

Friends are invited to share memories with the family on May 25, 5-7 PM at the New Bedford Country Club, 585 Slocum Road, N. Dartmouth. A funeral mass will take place at 10 AM Thursday, May 26 at St. Anthony's Parish, 22 Barstow Street, Mattapoisett. Burial will be private.
