He continued onto Harvard Extension & pursued a curriculum in pre-law. For over 33 years, he has had a constant career with the U.S. Postal Service at South Postal Annex as a mail handler. Within the McNeff family, several share the comradery of occupation, i.e., his brother Matt & his sister Maria also work for the U.S. Postal Service. He sought the outdoors and was an enthusiastic traveler and especially enjoyed boating, biking and other outdoor sporting events. Peter moved over ten years ago to Seabrook, New Hampshire.

He is the cherished son of Anne M. (Todino) McNeff of Winthrop & James V. McNeff of Somerville. He is the beloved brother to Matthew J. McNeff & his husband, David J. Russo of Watertown, Maria A. Hawkins & her husband Russell of Burlington, Indiana, Christina M. McNeff & her husband, David Bowles of Portland, Oregon. He is also the dear uncle to Sarah E. McNeff & Keith R.

    Stunned to learn of Pete’s passing. Found myself reflecting back to Brookfield Rd. Glad for the time we had together and can only wish that we had more.

    My heart goes out to Pete’s family.

    Pete, I can only hope to see you on the other side…to pick-up where we left off.

    I am so sorry to hear about this. I worked with Peter at Boston Children’s Theater and thought he was a great guy. He was also a great stage manager. I know all of us from that era miss him.

    I’m very sorry for your loss. Peter and I were students together at Simon’s Rock.

    I got to know Peter again in the early 2000s when he was a volunteer ESL tutor in my program at BBoston Chinatown Neighborhood Center. He was a generous, kind person.

    Our deepest and heartfelt sympathy to the McNeff family. Robby and I cannot express how truly sad the news of Petes passing has made us. We both have memories going back years of his kindness, humor, and intelligence. We had some great times with Peter and many laughs. He was a good friend and one of a kind. He’ll stay in our thoughts and be sorely missed.
