Peter “Pete” R McCabe, 37, of Forks Township, PA, passed away unexpectedly Monday, October 3, 2022. Pete was born April 3, 1985 in New York City, NY, to Natalie McCabe (Ranieri) and Robert McCabe. Although he was born in NY, he grew up from a very young age in Forks Township, Easton, PA, and graduated from Easton Area High School, class of 2003. He received a B.S. degree in English Education from The Citadel, The Military College of South Carolina, Charleston in 2007 and a M.S. degree in Education Development and Strategies from Wilkes University in 2011.
Pete was employed by the Easton Area School District. During his teaching career at the Easton Area Middle School and most recently at the Easton Area High School, he earned additional certifications in Mathematics and Science (7-9) and Social Studies and Biology (7-12). He was a natural born teacher with an ability to communicate with students at all levels, sharing his love of literature, history and science while helping students learn how to apply their knowledge to grow as young adults. He was honored to be a part of all Easton Area traditions –marching band events, sleepout before the traditional Turkey Day game, AAG, post prom and graduation – and worked tirelessly to keep those traditions alive for the next generation.
In memory of his maternal grandfather, he was a faithful fan of the NY Giants and NY Yankees. He made everyone laugh with his impersonations, corny jokes and dialects to match any cartoon character. But most of all, he was a brother and friend to so many who cherished his friendship and immeasurable acts of kindness.
He will be profoundly missed by his mother, who beamed with pride in his presence, his forever love and partner, Jen McLaughlin, her daughters, Adriana and Emily, his sister, Beth McCabe, extended family Jennifer (McCabe) Carlson and Michael McCabe, aunt and cousins, beloved neighbors, his other family within the Easton Area School District and his Citadel Regimental Band cadets. He was predeceased by his maternal grandparents, Sam and Elizabeth Ranieri, and paternal grandparents, Basil and Lorraine McCabe.
Calling hours will be held on Friday, October 21, 2022, from 3:00 PM to 4:30 PM followed by a memorial service at the Morello Funeral Home, Inc. 3720 Nicholas St., Easton, PA (Palmer Twp.). In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to The Center of Animal Health and Welfare, www.healthyanimalcenter.org. Online condolences may be offered at www.morellofuneralhome.com.
