Peter H. Schoonmaker Sr., 94

Peter H. Schoonmaker Sr., 94, passed away peacefully on Saturday, Aug. 3, 2013.

Peter led a very interesting and varied life. He was in the Army/Air Force during WWII and flew B25s and B26s. Directly after the war, he coached the golf team at Rollins College and then met and married his wife, Doris, in 1947. Together, they raised four children.

He earned several college degrees along the way, including two master’s degrees and then settled on making teaching eighth grade Science his profession of choice. He coached both golf and skiing. He loved gardening, rock and mineral hunting and reading.

After retiring, he and his wife moved to Maine (from New Jersey) and took up farming. He lived in Casco for 30 years.

Peter will be missed greatly, as he was always ready to teach and share his interests with anyone willing to learn.
