In memory of
Frederick M. Peightal Jr.
Frederick M. Peightal, Jr. Bermuda Dunes - On Thursday, June 13, 2019, Frederick Martin Peightal, Jr. (Fred) passed away after receiving a cancer diagnosis on May10th. Fred was born on August 21, 1940 in Huntingdon, PA to Helen and Frederick M. Peightal, Sr., who predeceased him. If you met Fred, you remembered him, as he lived life large - first born, only son, tall, handsome, star athlete, and avid sports fan. Fred graduated from Loch Haven University and starred as quarterback beginning in his freshman year. He was inducted into the university's Hall of Fame for leading his football teams to championship seasons. Fred moved to Baltimore, MD after graduating college and began a teaching and coaching career. He left teaching and found his calling -- sales and marketing. He climbed the corporate ladder at American Can Company and Kaiser Aluminum Chemical Corporation and retired as the executive responsible for east coast sales. He excelled at sales and loved his expense account - entertaining clients at the Masters and other PGA events, providing tickets to Baltimore Colts and Orioles games, college football games, and hosting many evenings at fine restaurants. After retiring in 1998, Fred and Mary, his wife, moved from Hunt Valley, MD to Ocean City, MD. In January 1999, they began wintering in Palm Desert at Monterey Country Club. They moved to Bermuda Dunes in 2004. In 2005, they began spending their summers in Jackson Hole, WY. Fred's lifelong passions were golf, football, fishing, friends, and family. He was proud of his five holes-in-one and winning many golf tournaments at Eagle's Nest Country Club, Monterey Country Club, and Jackson Hole Golf and Tennis Club. Fred enjoyed working part time at Teton Pines Country Club, watching college football and NFL games, and his grandchildren play lacrosse. Fred is survived by his beloved wife of 47 years, Mary S. Peightal, loving daughter, Elizabeth A. Peightal, of Timonium, MD, devoted son, Frederick M. Peightal III (Daryl), adored grandchildren, Theodore (Teddy), Finley, and Angus (Gus) Peightal of Jackson Hole, WY, loving sisters Cheryl P. Ritchey (Robert) and Barbara S. Purdy of Huntingdon, PA, and nephews Stephen C. Purdy (Ellen) of Conshohocken, PA, Robert S. Ritchey (Kara) of Huntingdon, PA, and Jason F. Ritchey (Staci) of Huntersville, NC. A memorial service will be held at 1 p.m. on Monday, November 25th at Monterey Country Club, 41-500 Monterey Avenue, Palm Desert, CA.
