SCHWERT - Peter Holtz of Eden, NY, passed away on June 5th, 2023. Peter is the beloved son of Deborah (Foley) Schwert and the late M. Peter Schwert. He is survived by his loving sisters Jennifer L. (Steven) Nassivera, Amanda D. Walden, and Eunice W. Schwert, his nieces Elizabeth M. Chentfant and Jillian M. Nassivera and his grandniece, Victoria D. Hammond. He is the grandson of the late Albert J. and Eunice (Williams) Foley and the late Harmon and Margaret (Holtz) Schwert. Peter is also survived by numerous cousins, with whom he enjoyed everlasting friendships and wonderful memories.
Peter was born on June 21, 1961, in Springfield, MA. He attended school at Eden Central and eventually graduated from St Joseph’s School for Exceptional Children, in Dunkirk, NY. During his time there he became an accomplished floor hockey player, earned a modified Eagle Scout level badge, and won medals in track and field at Special Olympics events. Peter was an avid outdoorsman, spending many happy hours fishing at his father’s cabin and particularly enjoyed his yearly trip, with his dad, to fish Lady Evelyn Lake in Canada for the elusive ’Grandpa Pike’. Peter’s many hobbies included reading, doing jigsaw puzzles, and playing golf. Peter traveled to Hawaii and Las Vegas on several occasions. Perhaps his greatest passion was cheering on his favorite sports teams, the Buffalo Bills and Buffalo Sabres. A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. Donations may be made in his name to The Special Olympics. Words of sympathy may be made on www.LaingFuneralHome.com
