Herve "Pete" O. Petrin

July 2, 2020


Petrin, Herve “Pete”, 90, died July 2, 2020 at Oakland Grove Health Care Center. He was the husband of Jeannette (Durand) Petrin to whom he was married for 68 years. A lifetime resident of Woonsocket, he was a son of the late Hector and Beatrice (Peloquin) Petrin.

Pete was an Army veteran during the Korean War. He was an active communicant of Holy Family and Holy Trinity parishes. He was also involved in the senior citizens groups at St. Josephs and St. Agatha’s Church. Pete was a very hard worker who spent most of his adult life as a trailer truck driver culminating with his retirement from B&W Express in 1991.

Pete enjoyed life, especially if it involved his family. There was nothing he wouldn’t do for any of them. He will be remembered for his helping hand and easy going personality.

Besides his wife, he is survived by a daughter, Jeanne Sutherland of Woonsocket, three grandchildren, Derek, Jessica and Amy, five great grandchildren, Abby, Scott, Dennis, Alex and Elha, a sister, Yvette Grenon of Woonsocket and a brother, Donald Petrin of California. He was preceded in death by son, Dennis and daughter in law, Carol Petrin. He was also the brother of the late Roger, Hector and Raymond Petrin, Gertrude Lambert and Jeannette Lefebvre.
