Peter Mezger, 72, of Oxford, the beloved husband of Beatriz Cisneros Mezger, entered into eternal rest on Dec. 25, 2013, at his home with his loving family by his side. 

Born in Stuttgart, Germany, on Dec. 12, 1941, he was the son of the late Adolf and Helene Dadler Mezger. Peter came from Germany on the SS United States in 1959 and resided in Queens, N.Y., until 1972 when he settled in Oxford.   

He was a machinist by trade and a Ham Radio Operator by hobby. Peter was an avid reader, loved anything to do with planes, especially World War II planes like the P-51 Mustang, as well as steam trains and war ships. 

A world traveler who enjoyed taking long drives and spending time with his family and friends eating, drinking and laughing, he will be sadly missed and forever in our hearts.

His loving family includes a caring son, four devoted daughters, Tanya Carver and her husband Edward of Oxford, Lisa Bochicchio and her husband Tony of Brewster, N.Y., Heidi Larke and her husband Eric of Shelton, and Helen Perez and her husband Israel of Oxford; 10 cherished grandchildren, a new grandchild on the way, and one loving great-grandchild. 

A Mass of Christian Burial was celebrated at St. Thomas the Apostle Church; interment was private at the convenience of the family. 

Arrangements were entrusted to The Miller-Ward Funeral Home of Seymour. To light a virtual candle or to leave online condolences, visit  www.millerwardfuneralhome.com
