Peter Joseph Zellhofer _ Beloved husband, father, grandfather and family man.

Pete married Mary A. Norris on May 24, 1998.

Pete was always a strong, hard worker. He started his first job and the young age of 14. He worked on a tobacco farm for many years. Pete worked several hard working positions until he decided to join the Air Force in 1973, serving for 4 years. When he returned home, he became a firefighter from 1978-1983. Pete continued to work several odd jobs until he found his calling as a home health care provider. He did until his first battle with cancer in 2004 got the best of him. Even then, on good days, when he was feeling up to it, he went back to work helping the elderly. Pete has been such a fighter and finally lost his battle to multi-myeloma cancer on January 30, 2015.


He is survived by his wife, Mary Zellhofer; three step-children, Candace Strong(Billy), Johnnie Minders, jr. and Christopher Clark(Angela);special daughter-in-law, Sabrina Gumm (Jay), adopted daughter, Mandi Crowder (Dawn); adopted son, Ricky Hashman (Heather); 27 grandchildren; 3 brothers, Thomas Zellhofer (Linda), Paul Zellhofer (Karen) and Phil Zellhofer; sister, Regina Breannen; and several nieces, nephews and cousins.

He was preceded in death by his father, Pete Zellhofer, Sr.; mother, Helen Zellhofer and sister, Mary Hyde.

Respecting Pete's wishes, remains will be cremated. A graveside service will be held in June at Camp Butler National Cemetery, with the Inter-Veterans Burial Detail of Sangamon County providing Military funerl honors.
