Obituary of Peter E. Gravelin
Peter E. Gravelin, age 85, of Middleborough, passed away on Friday evening, July 19, 2019, at the Nemasket Healthcare Center in Middleborough.
Peter was born in Middleborough, the oldest son of the late Peter D. & Thelma E. (Ray) Gravelin. As a child in the 1940's, he suffered a high fever from the measles when there were no medicines available; this led to several medical problems for the remainder of his life.
Peter helped at his mother's restaurant, Thelma's Restaurant in Middleborough, and would often be seen sitting at the counter.
Peter is survived by his devoted and caring sisters, Mary T. (Gravelin) Pittsley of Middleborough and Carolyn E. Gravelin of Middleborough. He was the brother of the late T. Delia (Gravelin-McLucas-Cote) Burpee, James J. Gravelin and Emerson A. Gravelin. Peter was the beloved and cherished uncle of many nieces and nephews; a dear cousin to many and is also survived by many friends of the WISE Program in Taunton.
