Peter S. Kieffer passed away at the age of 88 on October 3rd, 2021 from cancer. He was born in Englewood, NJ to Mary Phillips Schenck and Marcus Henderson Kieffer. He was raised with his 2 older sisters, Mary and Sally. He attended the University of Florida, was married and had 3 daughters: Lynn Roeder of Orlando, FL, Claire Peterson of Ft. Lauderdale, FL and Jann Morris of Berthoud, CO. He has 3 grandchildren: Lara Morris of Longmont, CO, Tamara Eldridge of Thornton, CO and Jarrad Roeder of Langhorne, PA. He was employed with FP&L for 30 years and was a 32nd degree Mason at the Mahi Temple in Miami. He will always be remembered for his decades of enthusiasm for the Miami Dolphins, his monkey collection, his love of wine and dogs, and his infectious laugh, but his love and devotion for his family and friends trumped everything he did in life.

Per Peter's wishes, he is being cremated. The immediate family will be gathering together in Orlando in November for a Celebration of his Life.

Friends have asked what they can do for the family...One of Pete's favorite charities was the Shriners Children's Foundation, where a donation can be made in his memory.

I have such wonderful memories of Pete. From the beginning where we met up at the Lantana Octoberfest and drinking beer and dancing, tailgating at Dolphin games, sailing, and the unique way he wound order his steak when we go to dinner. He was a wonderful dad who loved his three girls. They meant the world to him. May he Rest In Peace!!!
