Peter was born in Worcester on April 27, 1984, and attended Sacred Heart Elementary School and High School in Kingston. After graduating from Plymouth South High School in 2003, Peter channeled his inner nomad and spent several years roaming from state to state before returning home to Massachusetts. Peter eventually put down roots in Webster where he worked at Lakeview Marine as a Dock Installer, and could often be found fishing, camping, and disc golfing in his free time. With a passionate love for his family and friends, the great outdoors, and music, Peter made every moment special and always brought laughter to those around him. Despite his early departure, he leaves behind a lifetime of unforgettable adventures that are sure to be told around campfires from Cape Cod to Alaska.
Peter is survived by his parents Gary R. and Sharon (Sheehan) Mason of Plymouth; his son Peter J. Mason Jr. of Braintree; and his sister Emily C.M. Bannister, her husband David, and their daughters Caillie and Riley of Somerville. He also leaves behind his dear friend and uncle Jim Mason of Webster, as well as many other aunts, uncles, and cousins who he held close to his heart.
