View Original Notice ? Peter Teris

Peter James Teris, 61, originally from Pittsburgh’s Brookline neighborhood passed away at his home in Peters Township after bravely battling pancreatic cancer. He was the son of late James George Teris and the late Demetra Makris Teris, husband of Paula Teris; father of his beloved, and departed Peter Emmanuel Teris, and surviving son Theodore Teris; brother of Christina (the late Kyriacous) Kakoullis, and Uncle to Dimitri, Savvas, and Alexandros. A true entrepreneur, Peter operated Teris Parking since 1981 and expanded into real estate throughout the years. He and his wife, Paula Babac Teris operated their parking lots with the motto “Parking Our Pittsburgh Neighbors.” If you parked to go to The University of Pittsburgh, worked downtown, hockey game, Steeler Games, 4th of July Fireworks, St. Patrick’s Day parade, you probably parked at some point with Teris Parking. But, Peter loved and supported the Pathfinder School and thought the world of the staff and loved the children. Peter was a true optimist and despite losing both parents at a young age, found humor and joy in the world through baseball, singing, and time with his family. Peter also had no problem pointing out the obvious, and had a quick, wit unmatched. He was compassionate, and the friend you wanted if life was difficult, and found the good in everyone. Peter leaves behind a legacy of laughter and perseverance that nothing is impossible. He had hundreds of friends from grade school to recently from all walks of life, and he touched everyone’s life he met. May his memory be eternal.
