Obituary of Richard E. Peller

It is with great sadness that the family of Richard (Rick) E. Peller announces his passing after a courageous battle against prostate cancer on February 18, 2019 at 68 years old. Rick will be lovingly remembered by his wife Nancy [Goldmann], his daughter, Stephanie (Adam Weinberger) and granddaughter Leah, and son Scott. Rick is also survived by his brother David Peller (Margaret), brother in-law Richard Goldmann (Jill), and sister in-law Hilary Goldmann; as well as nieces, nephews, extended family and dear friends. He was predeceased by his parents Leo Peller and Toby [Klein] Peller. Rick was born in New York City and raised in New Rochelle. After graduating with a B.S. in Engineering and an MBA from Cornell University, Rick first worked for the family business New York Plumbers Specialties’ Co. He subsequently had a successful career in finance at Walter E Heller and Co. and then retired from Ally Corporate Financial as the Chief Risk Officer. Rick and Nancy relocated to Edwards, Colorado from Ossining to live closer to their children and granddaughter in 2018. A lifelong learner, world traveler, cruciverbalist and proud family man, he will be remembered with an intimate funeral service in Colorado. A celebration of his life will be held in the summer or fall. Donations in Rick’s memory may be made to the Shaw Cancer Center in Edwards, CO at
