1939 - 2018 Obituary Condolences
PETER BLUMBERG Peter Bowen Blumberg passed away April 4, 2018. He was born November 24, 1939, in St. Johns, New Brunswick, Canada. He spent his early years in Connecticut until the family moved to La Canada, California. Joining the U.S. Air Force in 1962, he was based at Nellis AFB and did a tour of duty in Iceland. His love of animals was expanded, being in the K-9 division of the Air Police. After his tour of duty, he resided in Las Vegas, settling into a successful long-term employment with Valley Uniform Supply, where he developed a close relationship with his work family. He met and married his wife, Ruth, in 1974. They subsequently moved to Reno in 1983. Pete loved living in Washoe Valley for many years, enjoying the ranch style living with his horses. Moving to Reno in 2000, he and Ruth enjoyed their time together living in a retirement community. Pete loved to travel across the country, especially Route 66. His rescue kitties were his buddies and provided him with many years of enjoyment. Pete was preceded in death by his parents, Nathanial and Caroline Blumberg; and his daughter, Misty Ann Blumberg. Pete is survived by his wife, Ruth; daughter, Donna (Matt) Ward; granddaughter, Jennifer (Carter) Fox; great-grandson, Cooper Fox; sister, Carol Ball; niece, Marisa Ball; and nephew, Dennis Ball. Graveside service, with military honors, will be at noon Saturday, April 14, at Palm Memorial Park-Henderson, 800 S. Boulder Highway. In lieu of flowers, a donation to the Nevada Humane Society would honor his love of animals.
