PETER J. SLOAN (“Pete”), 45, of Norristown, died on November 18, 2021 from injuries suffered in a car accident. Born on February 15, 1976, Pete was the third of four children of Eileen M. Sloan and the late Peter W. Sloan. He is survived by his loving family of Media, Pa, including his devoted mother, Eileen; his sisters Christine (husband Kevin Monteleone) and Diane (husband Michael Thase); his brother and best friend John N. Sloan; his two nieces, Charlotte and Carly Thase; one nephew, Austin Monteleone; his beloved Italian Greyhound Chase; and numerous lifelong friends who were like a second family.
Pete was a graduate of Malvern Preparatory High School and received a bachelor’s degree from St. Joseph’s University, where he majored in accounting. He worked for the past 22 years in the financial services industry, most recently for DLL Financial Services in Wayne, Pa. Pete had many diverse interests including history, travel, music, and sports. He was an ardent fan of Philadelphia area sports teams and a devout follower of the music of Bob Dylan and the Grateful Dead. During a 3-year period as an adolescent/young adult, Pete attended approximately 25 Grateful Dead shows, singing, dancing, and making lifelong memories with friends and family. As an adult, Pete spent many weekends of his life continuing to enjoy music/concerts with friends and watching sports with his brother John. Like his father who passed earlier this year, Pete rarely missed a family gathering and could always be counted on for an interesting conversation and his offbeat sense of humor. He will be dearly missed by friends and family alike.
A viewing for family and friends will be held on Wednesday, November 24, 2021 at 12:30pm followed by a funeral Mass at 1:30pm at Saint Pius X Church, 220 Lawrence Rd, Broomall, PA 19008.
