Peter Joseph Cooke III, 75, of Kennebunk, formerly of Massachusetts, died Sunday December 15, 2019 at Gosnell Memorial Hospice House in Scarborough following a lengthy illness.

He was born in Quincy, MA on December 22, 1943, the son of Peter J. and Harriet (Dodd) Cooke II, attended North Quincy schools and graduated from Boston College, Class of 1965.

Peter was my best friend at North Quincy High School.......I came home from college to serve as his Best Man in 1961. I’m sitting in my home in Naples. FL and Peter came to mind.....googled him and learned of his recent passing. Although we were great pals in H.S. Life took us on very different paths and we lost touch for 50 years. As time goes by we have more time to think about friendships that slipped away and I would often think of Peter and the friendship we enjoyed so many years ago. I now wish I’d called him in recent years to re-kindle the friendship......may God bless you my great friend. Cough

Dear Linda,
My deepest sympathy to you and your family on the loss of Peter.
You both were wonderful neighbors for the 4 years that I lived next to you.
I fondly remember Peter as a gentle and kind man who always had a smile
and a friendly wave to those he saw.
He will be greatly missed by all who knew him but mostly by his loving wife, children and grandchildren.
Take care during this painful time.

Peter was one of those great customers I had the pleasure to know at the Kennebunk Post Office. Always had time for a quick chat and a smile. A warm and generous man. My very best to Linda and family. Blessed to have known him.
