PORTLAND — Peter E. Field Sr., 76, of Portland, passed away on April 19, 2011. He spent his final days at the Gosnell Memorial Hospice House in Scarborough surrounded by his family.

On Sept. 6, 1958, Peter married his wife Sarah Sabatino. They had three children, Joanna Coey, Peter Field Jr. and Vicky Cichon.

Peter was extremely generous, caring, outgoing, and always on the move.

He also enjoyed his career as a salesman and was honored to earn the Bell Ringer of the Year Award. His friends and family loved listening to his stories and jokes. He truly had a knack for making people laugh. He always carried pictures of his grandchildren and great-grandchildren to show friends and almost everyone he met. His family was his pride and joy.

Peter was predeceased by his brothers, James Field and Robert Field.

He is survived by his wife of 52 years, Sarah Field; his children, Joanna Coey of Casco, Peter Field Jr. of Tampa, Fla. and Vicky Cichon of Tampa, Fla.; his sisters, Cynthia Beattie and Beverly Prescott; six grandchildren; two great-grandchildren; and several nieces and nephews.
