Peter R. Prewitt passed to eternal rest on Saturday, January 9, 2021. During his struggle with dementia, his family and friends want to thank the staff of Hartford Health Care for their outstanding help as well as the staff of Caleb Hitchcock.
Peter was born May 23, 1942 to Elisabeth Sterling Rockafellow and William Howard Prewitt in Morristown, NJ. He grew up in Marion, MA attending Wareham High School. Later he attended and played football for Boston University. In his younger years, he was a New England Champion in tennis.

He was married for 48 years to Kathleen Prewitt, living in West Simsbury. He is also survived by his son, Timothy Prewitt, his wife Elaine, and grandson Charlie, who was the light of his life. He also leaves a sister, Suzanne Peterson of Marion, MA and many nieces and nephews.

He spent his working career with Golden Press, a division of Western Publishing Company. Through many corporate mergers, this division was eventually purchased by Random House. He won Salesman of the Year three times. In addition, he was granted several honorary awards for outstanding sales performance. Once retired, he became an avid golfer playing with his golf groups when time allowed. He enjoyed many years of skiing and enjoying winter sports in Vermont. He became a fund raiser for Ohio Wesleyan, the university his son Timothy attended. He was also very active in the Simsbury ABC House for several years, serving as head of maintenance.
A private Funeral Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at St. Catherine of Siena Church followed by burial in Simsbury Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations in his name may be made to the Simsbury A Better Chance Program (ABC House) P.O. Box 542, Simsbury, CT 06070

The Vincent Funeral Home of Simsbury is caring for the arrangements. Please visit Peter’s “Book of Memories” at for online tributes.

Kathy, We'll cherish our memories of Peter, you & Tim in East Granby. And lots of fun, laughs and skinned elbows during the off-season at Mt.Killington competing in the Annual Trike Races! Peter brought a lot of fun and laughs into any room he entered. I hope these photos bring back those memories and a smile for you and Tim.
Our love & prayers to you all, Chuck & Jean Graham

Love, Tracey and Jim

Kathleen, Tim, Elaine and Charlie,

May the many happy memories and laughs with Peter give you comfort and strength each day. Dementia robs us all but we need to cherish and celebrate the wonderful husband, father and grandfather Peter was while healthy. I always enjoyed my discussions with Peter at various family gatherings, usually with a beer in hand. He was very passionate and a joy to be around. May God bless you all.
