Peter Andrew Dziuba, age 66, of Windham, Pennsylvania, passed away suddenly in his home on the evening of June 3, 2021. Pete was born on April 25, 1955, at the Robert Packer Hospital in Sayre, Pennsylvania. He graduated from Northeast Bradford High School, class of 1973. He married the love of his life, Mimi Bowen of Nichols, NY on June 7, 1975 and Monday they would have celebrated their 46th anniversary together.

Pete was a hard worker and was an auto mechanic for over 40 years, most recently employed at Ferrarios in Towanda until he became disabled from Rheumatoid Arthritis in 2014. He was so smart and could fix anything!

Pete enjoyed spending time with his wife and special granddaughter, Alayna, watching the news and old Western’s on TV, Washington Redskins football, working outside around his home, and spending time with close friends. He was a great and honest man who loved his family and friends deeply. His grandchildren were the light of his life, and he was especially proud of his special grandson Anthony. He loved watching Anthony play sports and was extremely proud of all his achievements in school.

Pete carried a newspaper quote in his wallet for many years that was given to him by his father. “Nobody can think straight who does not work. Idleness warps the mind” and “Thinking without constructive action becomes a disease” ~Henry Ford

He was predeceased by his parents, Andrew and Jeanne Dziuba of Nichols, NY, and his in-laws, Don and Jeanne Bowen also of Nichols.

Pete is survived by his loving wife, Mimi Dziuba, at home; two daughters Jessica (Michael) McDonald and Jillian (Juan) Dziuba; six grandchildren Anthony, Alayna, Orion, Phoenix, Fox and Zen; two brothers Michael (Marlene) Dziuba and Mat Dziuba; two sisters, Kathy Dziuba and Laurie (Bret) Bowen, along with several beloved brother and sister-in-laws, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins. He is also survived by many lifelong friends including a few very special (like brothers) Gary Hurley, Russ Hackett, and Steve Harvey.

A memorial service to celebrate Pete’s life will be held in the future at the convenience of the family.

In closing.. anyone who knew Pete, knew how much he loved Bob Dylan. Until we meet again..

May God bless and keep you always

May your wishes all come true

May you always do for others

And let others do for you

May you build a ladder to the stars

And climb on every rung

May you stay forever young

May you grow up to be righteous

May you grow up to be true

May you always know the truth

And see the lights surrounding you

May you always be courageous

Stand upright and be strong

May you stay forever young

May your hands always be busy

May your feet always be swift

May you have a strong foundation

When the winds of changes shift

May your heart always be joyful

May your song always be sung

May you stay forever young

~Bob Dylan
