Peter Brotman, 75, of Dedham and Brewster MA died peacefully on September 15, 2016.
He was a graduate of the Rivers School and Carnegie Mellon University. He joined his father in business at the Typographic House in South Boston where he became Chief Operating Officer and continued on as President until his retirement.
He was the son of the late Michael and Ruth Brotman. Peter is survived by his wife, Elaine and his daughters, Sandra Brotman of Lowell and Kelly Brotman of Avon and his 3 grandsons, Matthew, Jovanni and Jace. He is also survived by his devoted brothers and their wives, Carl and Sally Brotman and Rick and Linda Brotman along with many nieces and nephews.
Despite physical challenges, Peter sustained an active lifestyle until his later years and was an accomplished skier and fisherman. His many friends from Cape Cod will certainly miss Peter's constant gifts of fresh bluefish and striped bass. Everyone who knew Peter marveled at his upbeat and optimistic outlook even as his medical issues became more prominent and all will sorely miss the inspiration he provided.
Donations can be made in Peter's memory to; The Boys and Girls Club of Greater Lowell, 657 Middlesex Street, Lowell, MA 01851.
A memorial service will be held at a later date.
