Peter K. Ballesty, beloved son and brother, lost his battle with the disease of addiction Saturday morning at his home in Congers, NY. Pete graduated from Clarkstown North High School in 2000. He continued his studies at SUNY Oswego, earning a BA in Creative Writing in 2004. A tattoo artist by trade, Pete will be remembered for the myriad words he produced that will love on past him.

Pete is survived by his parents, Peter J. Ballesty and Dianne W. Ballesty, sister, Taryn Ballesty Harrigan, brother in law, John Harrigan and loved ones. He will be remembered by all as a kind, soft-spoken soul who viewed life differently than most. His art, music, and writing reflected a kind nature befitting a man of peace.

There are no words to express the pain of those Pete leaves behind. There is only the thought that his personal struggle is now over and he has found some peace. "After life's fitful fever, he sleeps well."

Family will receive visitors on Wednesday from 2-4 and 7-9pm at Michael J. Higgins Funeral Home, 113 Lake Road East, Congers, NY 10920. A service will take place at the funeral home at Thursday at 1:30pm. The family asks that, in lieu of flowers, donations be made in honor of Pete to a college fund for his niece. Please send donations c/o Peter J. Ballesty, PO Box 215, 75A Lake Road, Congers, NY 10920. All donations will be placed in trust for Pete's niece.
