Peter Lenton died unexpectedly June 26, 2019, at his Black Diamond home, where he had lived for the past 13 years with his wife Kathleen and his son David.

He was born Aug. 1, 1965, in Seattle, to the late Bob and Lorraine Lenton. He grew up in West Seattle and attended Kennedy Catholic High School in Burien, where he met Kathleen. He attended Highline Community College, pursuing a degree in criminal justice. Peter was proud of the time he spent as a King County reserve deputy sheriff, starting his own car towing and recovery business and spending the last 17 years as a full-time father. He always was always ready to share a story of childhood summers in Vermont, high school marching band or other life adventures. He loved to read, listen to music, play his trumpet, work on cars, play video/computer games. He also enjoyed camping, fishing and being outdoors, in addition to spending time with his family.

He is survived by his wife Kathleen; son David; and sisters Sharon Pettit (John), Roberta Parrish (Mel), and Sandi Lenton.

Services are planned for 11 a.m. July 20 at St. Barbara’s Catholic Church in Black Diamond, followed by a celebration of life at Lake Wilderness Park in Maple Valley.

Arrangements are by Weeks’ Enumclaw Funeral Home. All may share memories on the tribute wall at
