Jonathan Frederick Peters
1968 ∼ 2018
Jonathan Frederick Peters of Hull died June 4, 2018 at Massachusetts General Hospital surrounded by loving family at the age of 50 after a long battle with cancer. Jonathan was born March 10, 1968 the son of the late Nancy J. (Strickland) and Harold G. Peters. Jonathan grew up in Bridgewater, the youngest of four. He leaves behind his loving wife Pamela J. Pattavina, sisters Christine Schultz and Rebecca LaGrasta and brother Hal Peters. Jonathan graduated from Bridgewater-Raynham Regional High School and attended Colby College and Bridgewater State University.
However, Jonathan’s favorite place was Nantasket Beach where he and Pamela lived for 18 years. His career was spent in healthcare, forming close friendships along the way. People who had the chance to know Jonathan would describe him as empathetic, creative, thoughtful and always thinking of others. Jonathan was a good gift-giver. Jonathan was the kind of guy you would call if you got a flat tire at 2AM and needed a spare. He’d shop vac your flash-flooded basement while you’re out of town and never ask for a thank you. He never forgot the vegetarians at Thanksgiving. He grew river irises, beautiful peonies and had just started a koi pond; he loved gardening. Jonathan loved conversation, had incredible wit, could talk across many disciplines and liked keeping up with the news. He was a cyclist and a runner who loved to challenge himself with long distances. Jonathan had a knack for soothing babies and cared for his pets.
He is survived by his wife Pamela J. Pattavina of Hull. He is the father of Sydney Peters, Joshua Peters, Danielle Pattavina, Amanda Pattavina, Neela Ryan, John Pattavina, Oliver Pattavina and Hunter Pattavina. He is the grandfather of Olive Frederick Ryan and Isabel Pattavina Habeeb.
