Peter J. Bascom, ascended to God December 16th, 2021 after a brief illness.
Peter was born on May 5th, 1956 to Harvey and Edith (Landers) Bascom in Bellows Falls, Vermont.
He was raised in Acworth, NH, on the family owned Graydawn Dairy Farm which was farmed by four generations. A graduate of Fall Mountain Regional High School, he went on to The University of New Hampshire where he found a love of art and acquired his Bachelor of Arts degree.
In the summer of 1979, he worked with his leather design business in Myrtle Beach, S.C., Petcom Enterprises, where he met his wife of 41 years, Karen (Turner) Bascom. They married on July 26th, 1980 in Statesboro, Ga. at her family’s home.
Moving to Sarasota Florida in 1980, Peter's love of the Florida climate, foliage and the beaches sparked an interest in irrigation where he worked as an irrigation troubleshooter for various companies.
In addition to the love of his life, Karen, he leaves behind four sisters, Linda (Tom) Baker of Bath, NC. Jane (Tom) Esslinger of Acworth, NH. Marcia (Cliff) Oster of Langdon, NH. Eileen Holmes of Langdon, NH. He is predeceased by his parents Harvey and Edith Bascom and brother-in -law, Joseph Holmes. He was blessed with many wonderful nieces and nephews.
Peter had many loves, worked hard and enjoyed his life but nothing can compare to now being in God's arms...
There will be no services, please celebrate Peter's life and memory within your heart.
