Obituary

The world lost a beautiful soul on August 29, 2020. Peter Furtaw was a husband, father, brother, uncle, cousin and a true friend. Peter was born on November 9, 1978 in Brooklyn, New York to Russell and Paula Furtaw. He made many, many friends that he considered to be family. After attending the College of Staten Island, he became a New York City Police Officer, but his true passion was working with his hands and helping others. Peter married his best friend and childhood sweetheart on July 31, 2014. They were raising four beautiful children together: Anthony, Ella, Evan and Charlotte.

Family was the most important thing in Peter's life. Peter will always be remembered as a loving husband, father, brother, uncle, nephew, cousin, friend who was kind, generous, loving and the life of the party. He lit up any room he entered. Peter's life would seem too short to many, but those who were touched by him understood that the quality of existence far exceeded the quantity of time in which he lived. His love for life and huge heart far eclipsed his 41 years.

Peter is survived by his loving wife, Melissa; children Anthony, Ella, Evan and Charlotte; sister Donna and nieces: Paula, Samantha and Emma. He was preceded in death by his parents, and brother Paul Furtaw.
