PEABODY – Mr. Peter Behrakis, 90 of Peabody, beloved husband of Virginia (Marrocco) Behrakis, passed away peacefully on Friday, September 7, 2018 at Brooksby Village in Peabody.

Born in Waltham, he was the son of the late Nicholas and Stella (Logothou) Behrakis. Raised and educated in Waltham, he attended Waltham Public Schools.

An honorably discharged veteran, Peter proudly served his country as a member of the United States Navy during World War II.

A longtime member of the Town of Belmont, prior to moving to Brooksby Village in Peabody, Peter had spent his entire professional career working and managing machine shops within the community. His hard work and dedication went beyond the workplace and truly reflected in the man he was with his family. He will be deeply missed by those who knew and loved him.

In addition to his wife Virginia, with whom he shared nearly 67 years of marriage, Peter is survived by his daughter, Donna M. Conti and her husband Albert of West Greenwich, RI, his son, Peter Behrakis of Woodside, CA, his 3 grandsons, 5 great-grandchildren and several nieces and nephews.
