Newburyport, MA - Peter E. Mamakos, 89, of Newburyport, died peacefully in his sleep on Tuesday, January 14, 2020.
Peter was born and raised in Boston, MA, son of the late Emanuel and Angela (Moraites) Mamakos.
Educated in the Boston Public Schools, Peter attended the Wentworth institute of Technology. Peter was a proud Marine, having served in the Korean War from January 18, 1952, to December 11, 1953. After retiring at the age of 62 from a career as an Electrical Designer, Peter worked for 18 years at Lynch's Pharmacy in Newburyport.
Peter and his wife of 62 years, Anna (Janos) Mamakos, lived and raised their family in Amesbury until moving to Newburyport over a decade ago. He was an avid history buff, and enjoyed reading any nonfiction book about the Marines and World War II. He loved taking his family on road trips for summer vacation, travelling up and down the East Coast and into Canada. He and his wife also enjoyed their 15 winters on the East Coast of Florida, particularly their time in Miami, Ormond Beach, and Dania Beach visiting family and friends. Peter loved to tell stories about the good old days, and was always ready with a one liner or a joke.
In addition to his parents, Peter was pre-deceased by his sister Bessie Pangakis, his brothers Anthony, Charles and John, as well as his son Michael.
He is survived by his wife, Anna, his daughter, Cathy and her fiancé, Paul Johnson, sister-in-law, Mary Mamakos, daughter-in-law Kara (Stehlin) Mamakos, and the apples of his eye, his grandchildren, James and Elianna Mamakos. He is also survived by many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. He will be greatly missed by all, including the Smith/Cassavaugh family, his Heritage House friends, and his girlfriends at the Provident Bank in Newburyport, CVS on Pond St., and Market Basket Newburyport.
