Peter K. Stott, 81, of Hudson, MA, formerly of Marlborough, died peacefully, February 8, 2017, with his family by his side.
Peter was born in Sheffield, England on July 29, 1935 to Arthur and Lena (Riding) Stott. He lived in England until the age of twelve when his family relocated to Montreal, Quebec, Canada. He graduated from Lachine High School in Lachine and later McGill University, in Montreal.
Following his graduation from McGill, Peter began a career at Sun Life of Canada which lasted for 31 years. In 1973, a promotion with the company included relocating to the United States and the Stott family settled in Marlborough. He retired in 1991, and for many years divided his time between Sandwich, MA and Jensen Beach, FL, before moving to Hudson, MA.

He enjoyed golf, playing pool and spending time with his family and friends.

Peter will also be missed by his 11 grandchildren, his sister, Anne Higgins and his brother, David Stott, both of Ontario and his numerous friends from Hudson and Florida, especially Dick Carlson, Roger Montgomery, Charlie Bosio and Larry Bennett.
