Obituary for Peter Pletos

Peter Pletos of Warren, Michigan, after a full 90 years of living, was reunited with his beloved wife Patricia who passed away 26 years ago. Peter, who was one of 10 children, was born on May 13, 1928 in Detroit, Michigan to parents, Aspazia and Alexander Pletos.

Peter proudly served in the United States Army and the United States Air Force. He was offered the opportunity to attend West Point to continue his military career but respectfully declined in order to start a family that he always dreamed of. Peter married the love of his life, Patricia and had two children together. Peter began working as an automotive electrician for Chrysler. He retired after 40 years of dedicated service.

Peter was devoted to his church. He was a founding member of Holy Trinity Romanian Orthodox Church and was a member of the Bucovina Society there.

One of Peter’s biggest passions was gardening. He also loved to read the Wall Street Journal and monitor the stock markets. He enjoyed traveling, especially taking road trips with Patricia. He was an avid Michigan sports fan. He liked watching the Tigers, Lions, Red Wings, and the University of Michigan.

In his later years, Peter remained very active. He enjoyed being involved with senior activities, especially walking groups and he was a proud member of the Masonic Fraternity.

Peter will be remembered fondly for his dedication to his family, his country, and God. He was a loving husband, father, grandfather, uncle, and friend. He was deeply loved and will be sorely missed.

Peter is survived by his children, Lori (Mike) Teodorescu and Mitchell (Sandy) Pletos and his grandchildren, Alexandra Teodorescu, Rachael Teodorescu, Cayleb Pletos, and Kaden Pletos. He is also survived by his sister, Ann Jannetta, his niece/second daughter, Maria (Jim Hendrickson) Borka, and many loving nieces and nephews, including, Kathleen (Jim) Goeb, Sylvia Pletos, Peggy Pletos, Gerri Hoffman, and Charlene Waatti.
