Peter Eugene Asselin, 59, went home to be with the Lord on Saturday, June 15, 2019. Pete passed at his home after 6 months of declining health due to cancer.

Peter was born in Massachusetts to Robert and Theresa Wabnum Asselin on April 10, 1960.

Pete worked at IBM for 25 years, then became an OTR truck driver for the past 15 years. He was currently employed by Cardinal Logistics Trucking Corporation. He adored his 3 grandchildren, and his life was about providing for his loving family. Pete had also honorably served his country 3 years in the US Army. While stationed in Germany, he met his fellow soldier and love of his life, Marion.

Pete was preceded in death by his mother, Theresa “OSH” Asselin; an older sister, Roberta; and a younger brother, Tony.
