Peter P. Kasper
Peter P. “Pete” Kasper, 83, of Baldwinville, died suddenly, Tuesday, April 28, 2020, in Heywood Hospital, Gardner, after being stricken ill at home.
Born in Gardner on February 13, 1937, he was the son of the late Francis and Sophie T. (Coobic) Kasper. He was a graduate of Templeton High School with the Class of 1954. He was a United States Navy Veteran. He was a charge attendant employed by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts at Gardner State Hospital for 33-years until his retirement. He also worked at the Town of Templeton Landfill for several years.
Peter was a parishioner of St. Vincent de Paul Church of Baldwinville. He was a member of the Royalston Fish and Gun Club. Peter was an avid outdoors man who loved hunting and fishing. He enjoyed watching sports—especially Narragansett sports and other area teams. Peter also enjoyed daily drives around town to check the precincts and sitting at Lake Dennison. But the time that Peter loved and cherished the most was time spent with his family, especially his grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Peter is survived by his wife of 60-years, Theresa J. (Landry) Kasper of Baldwinville; a daughter, Mary Amistadi and her husband Gary of Templeton; four grandchildren, Logan and Dylan Kasper, Melissa LaBonte, and Sheena Butler; four great-grandchildren, Aiden and Wyatt Butler, and Camden and Alaina LaBonte; several nieces, nephews, and cousins.
He was predeceased by his son Mark P. Kasper, who died in 2014, and a sister, Pauline Dack.
Funeral Services will be announced at a later date.
Memorial Contributions may be made to the Narragansett Regional Athletic Association, 464 Baldwinville Road, Baldwinville, MA 01436 or to the Templeton Ambulance Service, 2 School Street, Baldwinville, MA 01436. Please reference in memory of Pete P. Kasper.
Thanks to you, I met Pete in the early 1970's and, without exception, thoroughly enjoyed my chats with him! I'm sure he must have cringed when I became a football announcer -- being a musician and not an athlete -- but even then he never spoke to me in anything but a friendly voice. I hold you and Pete high in my heart. God bless you.

Please accept my families condolences on the loss of a wonderful man.. Pete was an interesting person with lots of stories.. but none more special than talking about his family, his grandchildren and great grandchildren.

Cherish all the wonderful memories of camping, and special times with family and friends until you are all re-united again one day. Love to you all, Mary, Ticky and Jeremy

So sorry to hear this. Peter was a great guy. I had known him since high school and were good friends. When we use to camp at the same camp ground at Old Orchard, he would stop by and chat almost every day. He will be surely missed. May he R.I.P.
