Peter Sheridan, passed away on February 13th at the age of 86. Peter was born on December 29, 1937 in New York, NY. The son of Patrick and Nora Sheridan, both born in Mayo, Ireland, he cherished his Irish heritage.

Peter was the devoted husband to his wife of 62 years, Kathleen, loving father of Patrick (Carol), Peter, who predeceased him, Brian (Doreen) and Kathleen Coyne (J Collins), and doting grandfather to his 15 grandchildren, Samantha, Julia, Sean (Alexandra), Jessica, Nora, Jackie, Delia, Kiera, Kathlyn, Emma, Megyn, Catriona, Ella, Grayce and Sara.

    Sincere sympathy to the Sheridan family on the death of dear Peter. It was always a pleasure to be in his company, he was a born entertainer just like his uncle and name sake.
    My mother, Mary O’Malley (nee Gavin) Roigh Co.Mayo, was Peters cousin.
    May God grant them all eternal Rest.
