Peter S. Sarmento Jr., passed away at home on Thursday, May 12, 2022. Born in Ephrata, PA in 1962 to Yvonne “Bonnie” (nee Donnell) Sarmento and the late Peter Sarmento. He was the husband of 40 years to Jeanne Lynne Sarmento (nee Switzer).
Peter married his best friend Jeanne, and together they were blessed with three amazing children. He was a hands-on father who loved to spend time with his children, teaching them things like how to tie their shoes and ride a bike, to hunt and fish and drive a car, and to love unconditionally. He was a man of values who did everything he could to instill those values in his children. He also shared his passion for simple things like spending time in nature and listening to music. Peter would often leave small notes for his family reminding them of how much he loved and cared about them, and when with his family hugs were mandatory.
He enjoyed hunting, fishing, riding motorcycles, going to the Tri-Town Sportsman Club of which he was a member, attending the Keystone Nationals at Maple Grove Raceway & spending time with his mom, brother and good friends. He was employed as a truck driver for Oz Properties, Inc., for A.J. Blosenski, Inc., and was co-owner of American Stone & Landscape Supply, and formed many close friendships with his co-workers throughout the years.
Peter will be remembered as a positive and radiant person who touched the lives of countless people and left a shining impression wherever he went. There are not words to express how deeply he will be missed by his friends, family, and loved ones.
In addition to his mother Yvonne, brother Tony, and wife Jeanne, Peter is survived by his three children; Seth Peter Sarmento, Ian James Peter Sarmento, Savannah Ray Garrison (Jake) and grandson Zane Peter Sarmento. Peter is preceded in death by his father, Peter Stanley Sarmento and brother, Michael Allen Sarmento
