Memorial visitation will be Friday August 31 from 4 to 6 p.m. at Kibler Brady Ruestman Memorial Home, Bloomington. Peter was born in Hopedale, Illinois on May 30, 1959 a son to James Donald and Alberta B. Reymer Embry. He married the love of his life, Kristie M. Connett, on August 25, 1978 and again on August 3, 2018. He was the proud parent of a daughter Barbara (Robert) Kerns, Frontenac, MO. He is survived by his beloved wife and daughter, as well as his father, J. Donald (Janice) Embry, Peoria, and mother, Alberta Raymer Embry, Mackinaw. Also surviving are his sisters, Kitty (David) Hessel, Normal, and Bethany Cottrell, Danvers; his brothers, Patrick (Trish) Embry, Nashville, TN, Jim (Carol) Embry, Indianapolis, IN, John (Tracy) Embry, Mackinaw; and many loved nieces, nephew, cousins, aunts, uncles, and his cat, Ignatz. Peter graduated from DeeMack High School in 1977. He spent more than 20 years working at Illinois State University as a Building Service Worker. He took great pride in his work and loved connecting with the students. He was an avid U of I Fighting Illini basketball fan and enjoyed watching St. Louis Cardinals baseball both at home and in St. Louis with his Dad and brothers. He and Kristie spent most of their time in their backyard, which they turned into a beautiful secret garden oasis worthy of the Garden Walk. He loved listening to music and often went to concerts with family and friends. He loved that he raised his daughter listening to The Rolling Stones, Aerosmith, and Tom Petty. Peter only knew for a few months that he had cancer. But for that remaining time, he enthusiastically gave it the one finger salute and expressed in his own words “F*** cancer!”.
