Peter Joseph Lubin, 61 of Downingtown, PA died on April 13 with his wife and daughter by his side, after a valiant 36 month fight with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). He faced ALS with the same grace with which he lived his life.
Born in Livingston, Peter was raised in Bernardsville NJ, the youngest of three. He graduated from Lynchburg College in Virginia, with a degree in Economics/International Business and earned his PMP certification from Penn State. Peter’s career in telecommunications included leadership roles at Verizon and Exelon, and he retired early from Penske, in Reading, as Director of Utility and Telecommunications Services.
A natural athlete, he was at home in the outdoors, whether hiking through canyons or skiing. Peter treasured his annual ski trips with his daughter, Karli, and was committed to his volunteer work on Ski Patrol at Bear Creek Mountain.
Peter shared his zest for life generously, and he made friends everywhere he went. At the same time, his favorite hours were spent at home with his girls and his dogs.
Peter is survived by his best friend and wife of 35 years, Carole, their beloved daughter, Karli, and honorary mother, Connie. His family also includes a brother and sister, brothers-in-law, cousins, nieces and nephews. Part of his legacy is a wide circle of friends who will remember his smile and easy laugh.
A mass celebrating Peter’s vibrant life will be held on Friday April 21, 2017 at 10 am from St. Elizabeth’s Catholic Church 100 St. Elizabeth Drive Chester Springs where friends may visit from 8:30 to 9:45 am.
Memorials are preferred to the Packard Center for ALS Research at Johns Hopkins where Peter participated in clinical research to help find a cure for ALS (www.alscenter.org).
