Peter L. Batula
Peter L. Batula, 82, of Concord, NH passed away peacefully October 19, 2019 at CRVNA Hospice House in Concord NH, surrounded by his loving family.
He was born in Harrisburg, PA on April 27, 1937 to the late Stojan and Mildred Batula.
From a very humble beginning in rural Pennsylvania, Peter was able to rise-up and become a senior leader at the H.J. Heinz Company, a proud member of the New England Patriots advisory board for over 10 years, and a State Representative and committee Chairman at the State House in Concord representing Merrimack NH for 14 years after retirement.
Although a very distinguished, proud and active member of his community, Peter’s first love, passion and trait was his amazing devotion and love for his family and his commitment to his faith, his church and God. Peter was a true inspiration to all that were lucky enough to get to know him.
He leaves behind his beloved wife of 61 years Janice Batula; son Jeffrey Batula (Alyssa); daughters Carrie Morris and Jennifer Collins (Robert); and his sister, Maryann Otto. He is also survived by his cherished grandchildren, Derek Batula (Lauren), David Batula (Holly), Amanda Lacroix (Zachary), Shannen Batula, Madeline Collins, Audrey Collins, and Robert Collins; as well as 5 precious great-grandchildren and a 6th due in December. He was predeceased by his brothers Dushan, Nicholas, Stephen, and George, his sister, Ann, and his son-in-law, Thomas Morris.
