Peter S. Fotos

June 20, 1934 — April 20, 2023

Watertown, CT



Peter S. Fotos,  88, of Watertown, CT, and formerly of Worcester, MA, passed away peacefully on Thursday, April 20th.

Peter was born in Longos, Epirus, Albania, son of Vasilios and Sophia (Dangas) Fotos.  He immigrated with his parents to the United States in 1938, settling in Worcester.  He earned his bachelor’s degree from Boston University and later proudly served in the United States Army.  Peter had a long career in retail, beginning at Filene’s in Worcester and retiring as the owner and operator of J. Putnam women's apparel specialty store in Glastonbury, CT.  After retirement, he had a routine of going to the market, post office, and library to meet friends every day without fail.  Peter found great joy in yard work and gardening, heading to the beach, and admiring the trees especially as they blossomed in the spring.  He was happiest when winter was over! He was an avid reader and a faithful fan of the Boston Red Sox.  Above all, he enjoyed spending time with his family who will miss him terribly.

          Peter leaves his beloved wife, Carrie (Judd) Fotos; loving children, Cassandra Fotos, JoAnne Holland and her husband, Stephen, William Fotos and his wife, Lauren, and his brother, Evans Fotos.  He also leaves his grandchildren Peter Holland and his wife Emily, Conor Holland, Mackenzie Napolitano and her husband Joseph, Stephen Holland, Nicholas Fotos and his wife Julia, Patricia Fotos and James Fotos along with great grandchildren Madison and Joseph Napolitano and Finn Holland; and his former wife, Virginia Fotos,  as well as a large extended family.  He was predeceased by his brother Charles Fotos and his sister Irene Kyriazis.

Family and friends are welcome to attend a celebration of Peter’s life with a funeral service on Tuesday, April 25, at 11:00 AM at St. Spyridon Greek Orthodox Cathedral, 102 Russell Street, Worcester, MA.  Burial will follow in Hope Cemetery, Worcester.

The family would like to thank the staff of Apple Rehab Watertown for their care and kindness.
