Peter Freeze entered the world January 5, 1958 in Exeter, NH and started his life of mischief and adventure early. Jumping up and down wildly in his crib gave Mom and Dad a hint of what was to come!
Pete traveled the world with his military family, providing roguish exploits for his friends wherever he went – from streaking on a freezing night at the Valentines Dance to donning a fashion forward navy velvet suit at his prom to skipping school in order to go exploring or sailing. His High School friends recount their experiences with Pete as the best memories of their lives, though his parents and school officials might have a difference of opinion on that. After High School, Pete journeyed to Washington State with friends. There he found Lake Shannon and knew he belonged among the mountains and lakes of the North Cascades.
One of Pete’s favorite quotes is by Hunter S. Thompson: “Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming ‘Wow, what a ride!'”
Pete lived life his own way, but would do anything he could for his friends, family, or those in need. He left this world on his final adventure November 13, 2021, leaving his son, Eric Freeze of Concrete WA; loving parents, Ron & Ann Freeze of Exeter NH; sisters, Jeanne Freeze & Beth Gallagher and their spouses Jeremy & Brian of Stratham NH; nieces, Kaly & Weyni Gallagher also of Stratham NH, heartbroken at his loss.
