Peter Edward Eggermann, 99, died peacefully on Thursday, March 16, 2017, at the House of the Good Shepherd in Hackettstown, New Jersey.

Peter was born and raised in Jersey City, was married for almost sixty years to his loving wife Ethel, and together with her raised four children.

Peter was a WWII veteran and was among the first troops to leave for the European Theatre on the Queen Mary. He fought in the Battle of the Bulge, and helped to release the survivors of the Dachau concentration camp. He was awarded the Good Conduct Medal and the European-African-Middle Eastern Service Medal after three years of service to his country.

Pete had a passion for auto mechanics and tinkering, reading, a loyal and happy dog, singing duets with Ethel, and spending time with his many friends and family. He was the consummate “provider” with an unstoppable work ethic, retiring from his last paying job at age 94.

Peter is predeceased by his sister, Alice Tenthoff, and his wife, Ethel M. Eggermann.

A faithful husband and caring father, Peter is survived by his children, Peter P. Eggermann, Elaine Eggermann Allen and her husband Frank, Beverly Rogers and her husband Scott, David Eggermann and his wife Janine, as well as his grandsons, Seth W. Eggermann and Christopher P. Eggermann, and his many nieces and nephews.

Rest in peace, Peter, we will miss you.

Arrangements are Private under the direction of the Par-Troy Funeral Home.
