Peter W. Millerick

Family & friends are respectfully invited to attend Visiting Hours on Wednesday, June 29th from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m., in the Vertuccio & Smith, Home for Funerals, 773 Broadway, Revere, for Peter W. Millerick, who died on Tuesday, June 21st at the Massachusetts General Hospital following a brief illness, he was 74 years old. A Funeral Service will be conducted in the Funeral Home at 11:15 a.m. Interment & Military Honors will be in Massachusetts National Cemetery, Bourne.

Peter was a lifelong resident of Jeffries Point in East Boston. He was educated in the Assumption Church Parochial School and was an alumnus of Boston English High School, Class of 1965. Peter possessed a deep passion of being on the harbor. He along with his brothers, were raised on waters of Boston Harbor & the Islands.   Shortly after graduation, Peter enlisted in the United States Coast Guard during the Vietnam War. He proudly served his country from 1967 until 1971. When he returned home, Peter began his working career for Bethlehem Steel Corporation as a Tugboat operator aboard the “Bethlehem One”. Peter thoroughly enjoyed this job especially being on Boston Harbor. He worked there for approximately 10 years, until the closing of the Boston shipyard. Peter then worked at Boston Fuel Pier for several years, before taking a position at the M.W.R.A., pump station in East Boston, for over 10 years, before his final position at Boston City Hall as a First-Class Steam Engineer. Peter was first and foremost a loving & dedicated father to his two children. Peter helped instill the value of education to his children and the idea of being happy in what you do. Peter was also a man who was fiercely independent, highly intelligent and had an appreciation of art. He was often spotted riding his bicycle around East Boston as well as in Boston. He was very innovative in many ways, perhaps it was Peter that came up with the bicycle concept in the city, by having a second bicycle that he would leave in the city and when he would take the train in to Boston, he would get his bicycle at the particular T Station & go about his business.  Peter enjoyed traveling, learning new things & appreciating the natural beauty of the city & city living. His charismatic nature, and witty sense of humor are just a couple of things that made him unique.   

He is the loving & proud father of Thea Perez & husband Michael of Newton & Peter D. Millerick of East Boston. Cherished grandfather of Maverick Perez & Tallulah Perez, both of Newton. He is the dear brother of Gerard E. Millerick & wife Deborah of East Boston and the late Martin J. Millerick, Lorraine T. Nazzaro, Edward A. Millerick & Richard J. Millerick. Son of the late Edward C. Millerick & Imelda (Almond) Millerick. He is also survived by his former wife, Dorothea G. “Gerry” (Saulnier) Millerick of Plymouth. He is also lovingly survived by many nieces, nephews, grandnieces, grandnephews, cousins & lifelong friends.

In lieu of flowers, remembrances may be made to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research, P.O. Box 5014 Hagerstown, MD 21741-5014.
