Peter J. Feuerbach, 53

Manchester-by-the-Sea — Peter J. Feuerbach, 53, of Manchester, Mass., passed away suddenly at Mass General Hospital on Friday, June 14, with his wife, Linda by his side.

Peter is survived by his loving wife of 19 years, Linda; his beautiful children, Winston, 16, Spencer, 14, and Eve, 12; his parents, Dr. John and Florrie Feuerbach of Larchmont, N.Y. and Nantucket, Mass.; and his mother-in-law Marilyn Eaton of Ipswich, Mass. Peter had a loving bond with his siblings and their spouses, Carla Feuerbach (Darrell Aldrich), John Feuerbach (MaryJo Moubry), and Paul Feuerbach (Mary Kaysen). Peter also had an incredible relationship with his wife’s family, Chris and Robin Conant, Janice Updike, Michael Updike, and Cindy and Dave Gordon. Peter also leaves many nieces and nephews loved dearly by him.

Peter adored his children, and the wisdom and guidance he instilled in them will help shape their lives moving forward. The family shares fond memories of times together at Singing Beach in Manchester, hiking and camping, and trips to London, Paris and major cities along the East Coast.

Peter was born in New Rochelle, N.Y., and raised in Larchmont, N.Y., where he attended Mamaroneck High School. He received a bachelors of science in geology/hydrology from the University of New Hampshire, a masters in environmental studies and forestry from Yale University, and a law degree from Suffolk University School of Law.

Peter’s love of the outdoors and his interest in environmental issues led to a lifelong career in environmental law, and environmental and land planning. While at UNH, his undergraduate research studies in geology brought him to Greenland and McMurdo Station in Antarctica. His experiences in Antarctica led to a career in environmental planning that began with the City of Braintree, Mass., and continued at McGregor, Shea & Doliner, a leading Boston-based environmental law firm. After receiving his law degree in 1994, Peter worked at Kopelman and Paige, P.C. as an associate attorney. In 1998, he joined the law firm Rubin and Rudman LLP, where he worked for 15 years, concentrating in real estate, environmental and land use, and zoning. Within the Boston legal community, Peter was known as a skilled and tenacious attorney. His unfaltering dedication to his clients established him as a well-respected member of the legal community.
