Obituary

Peter George Froehle of Newburgh, IN, passed away on Friday, August 6, 2021, at his home surrounded by his wife Sheryl and his sister Anita.

Peter was born September 21, 1947 in Evansville, IN to the late Nancy Frances (Moore) Froehle and Joseph W. Froehle. He was a 1965 graduate of Rex Mundi High School. Pete and Sheryl enjoyed attending almost every RM reunion as well as the “All-School Reunion” held at The Gold Room in 2010. Pete enlisted in the Navy in his senior year. Then, 1 week after graduation he left for basic training at the Greatlakes Naval Training Center. After his basic training, he left for his first duty station at the Norfolk Naval Station in Norfolk, VA.  He served as an Airedale in the VP-24 Patrol Squadron (Anti-Submarine Warfare) and was deployed to Rota Spain and Reykjavik, Iceland 1965 – 1969.

Pete adored our many animals through the years and was a dedicated Pet Parent to our GSD’s, Alex and Luke; Sheltie, Ruby Tuesday along with our rescued very special deaf cat Zoey, nicknamed Snow White by him.
