SARATOGA SPRINGS Peter J. Connor, 86, passed away Tuesday June 30, 2020 at Saratoga Hospital. Born and educated in Troy he was the son of the late Harold G. and Mary Murphy Connor.

Peter had a professional career that began with delivering Freihofer products by horse drawn carriage, worked for over 30 years at the former Grand Union Warehouse in Waterford, and lastly working at the Albany Airport. He was a veteran of the US Army. He cherished his childhood memories at his Aunt Gertie’s in Lake George swimming with his brother, Jack.

In his grandchildren he cultivated an appreciation for fine food, opera, ballet, the orchestra, and live theatre. To the delight of his grandchildren, and chagrin of his children, he is best remembered for taking the children to dinner and the ballet, followed by swimming in lake George in their best clothes. Peter loved to act the chauffeur to his grandchildren and their friends, he called himself “Winston” and taught them to read the ‘sheets’ at Saratoga Race Track and more importantly how to lose with dramatic flair by tearing their bets to bits. He was always filled with surprises and silly antics. His great grandchildren call him ‘Winston’ and he delighted in them and their varied personalities and interests. Peter’s greatest joy was spending time with his family.

He is predeceased by his wife, Frances Ann (Layton) Connor. He is survived by his son Paul (Susan) Connor of North Carolina and a daughter, Carol (Marc) Desrosiers of Ballston Lake. Peter’s grandchildren Nicole (Jon) MacNeil, Casey (Heather) Connor, Gina (Corey) Gamble, and Lindsey (Sean) Carmody, and his 8 Great grandchildren.

Funeral services will be private and entombment will be in Gerald BH Solomon Saratoga National Cemetery.

Peter was my neighbor and we had a lot of laughs with him. He rode the CDTA bus to Walmart. Sure will miss him. He was a great guy.

Peter and I share the the same great memories of Aunt Gertie's Lake George cottage. It was a special place for a child to explore. Climbing along the rock wall and watching the chipmunks run amok. My deepest condolences.
