BRADFORD, VT — Peter Stone was born in Newton, Massachusetts. on April 10, 1940 and died on August 14, 2020 in Bradford, VT., his home for the last forty years. He was 80 years old.

After graduating from the Belmont Hill School outside of Boston and attending Lawrence University in Wisconsin, he returned to the Boston area. His sharp technical mind and his love for music led him to employment during the “HiFi boom” of the 1970’s with innovator Advent in Cambridge and Epicure, where he was a principal and founder, in Newburyport, Massachusetts.

An avid amateur photographer, he took thousands of photos in Europe, the American Southwest and candid shots of people and landscapes in first Boston then Vermont where he moved to in 1980.

Often perceived as reclusive by those who did not know him, Peter struggled with lifelong learning disabilities that often kept him on the sidelines. That experience led him to work as a volunteer with Central Vermont Adult Basic Education in Bradford, VT and tutored young people in math and helping them get their GED.

A serious gourmand, he worked in his youth as a professional cook - insisting he was “not a chef” - in and around Boston. He had an impressive list of favorite restaurants ranging from Charlestown, NH to Burlington, VT, where he often took friends out to his favorite Burlington place, Single Pebble. His first choice restaurant was Peyton Place in Orford, NH. Peter also enjoyed a good single malt and a cigar. He loved a good cup of coffee and was often enjoying a cup at the Dirt Cowboy in Hanover, NH.

Peter was the only child of Mark and Clara (Segel) of Boston. He is survived by a large extended family and network of friends.

Hale Funeral Home in Bradford, VT is in charge of the arrangements. Due to the Covid Epidemic, a memorial gathering will be postponed until next summer.

In lieu of flowers, people are invited to make a donation in Peter Stone’s name to Mary Hitchcock Memorial Hospital in Lebanon, NH.
