Peter was born in Brooklyn to Peter Claps and Bettina Fedele/Claps and an older brother Lewis. Peter worked in various positions in printing, hospital maintenance, and in restaurants. While in New York, he met and married Kathleen on September 4, 1965 and had four children, Peter, Gina, Daniel and Stacey. They moved to Pasco County in 1977and then to Spring Hill in 2006. While in Florida, Peter worked in various management positions. For 10 years Peter worked for the Pasco Parks and Recreation before retiring in 2006.



Peter was a true family man who always worked hard to put his family first. He was easy going, fun loving, honest, clever with a wise guy sense of humor. Peter never had a bad word to say about anyone and wouldn’t hurt a soul. He enjoyed working with his hands in the yard, on the house or our cars and bikes. He liked to watch golf, baseball and football. He also loved playing the lottery.



He was truly a man to look up to and admire.



He will be deeply missed by his wife Kathleen, children Peter, Gina and son in law Mark, Daniel and daughter in law Stacy, and Stacey, his grandchildren Traci, Patrick, Kiara, Robert, Michael and Summer, and his great grandchildren Annalisa, Bella and Vincent.



A Memorial Gathering will be held at Turner Funeral Homes Spring Hill Chapel, 14360 Spring Hill Drive, Spring Hill, FL 34609 on Friday from 5-8pm with Memorial Services at 7pm. In lieu of flowers please make a donation to HPH Hospice or the Humane Society of Nature Coast.



Our Family would like to thank the wonderful care given by his physician of many years, Dr. John Pirrello and his caring staff. We would also like to thank the wonderful people of HPH Hospice who were here for Peter and our family the last few weeks.
