Peter Joseph Korondi of Liberty, Mo., was born on February 28, the Year of our Lord 1965 in Peoria, Ill., the son of Siegfried and Nan Schueler (Korondi) Hughes. He was a faithful follower of the Lord Jesus Christ, and a member in good standing of Trinity Lutheran Church, Kearney, Mo. He was Baptized into the Christian faith on the 16th of April, 1966, at Grace Presbyterian Church in Peoria, Ill.
He married Deanna Harris Korondi on March 11, 1989. Together they had three children. He was confirmed in the Christian faith at Trinity Lutheran Church on October 23, 1988. During his time as a member of Trinity Lutheran Church, he enjoyed serving the Lord through his involvement as President, Vice-President, Youth Director, Properties Director, Sunday School Teacher, most recently an Elder, and in various other capacities. As a faithful, Baptized child of God, Pete was diligent in his attendance, at both worship and the Lord’s Supper.
Pete worked for 29 years in the insurance industry as an adjuster and most recently as a construction consultant. He loved coaching his boys’ basketball teams, playing basketball, cheering for the Iowa Hawkeyes, and being with family and friends.
The Lord of the Church called Pete home to be with Him on August 21, 2017 at the age of 52 years, 5 months, and 30 days. He was preceded in death by his father, Siegfried, and his brother, Thomas.
He is survived by his wife, Deanna; three sons, Sullivan James, Jonah Siegfried, and Simon Joseph; his mother, Nan Hughes (and step-father, Terry); his sister, Gail Rheiner; his step-sister, Kelly Burriesci (and her husband, David); his step-brothers, Shaun Hughes (and his wife, Puput); and Jason Hughes (and his wife, Suzanne); aunts and uncles; several nephews and nieces; and as well, many other friends, co-workers and acquaintances.
Deanna and family,
May all who mourn this death be comforted in the sure and promised hope of the Resurrection of the dead for all those who believe and place their trust in the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior — for even in death, He is Lord of all. To Him be the glory, and the power, and the dominion, forever and ever. Amen!
Our Sincere Condolences
I worked with Peter on numerous claims over the past 20 years. I worked with several restoration companies and was very fortunate when Peter was the adjuster on a claim I was working on. He was so kind. He never judged. It may be some time between the jobs I would be so lucky to have Peter be the adjuster on. But each time we picked up where we left off. He would remember something about the last conversation and ask me how things were going. His faith always shined through. I’ve decided to be more like Peter. If everybody would,the world would be a better place. Prayers for you and your family. I was unable to be at the visitation or service due to illness. My memorial gift is being sent to Trinity Lutheran.
To the family our deepest and sincerest condolences.
It came as a shock when I realized the phone number I had for Peter didn’t work. I know I sent Peter a father’s day message last year and he responded, so I did the same this year. When the message bounced back, I figured he got new phone and that was all. I deleted the entry then something (God? Peter) told me to google search his name. That is how I found that he passed. So wish we had known so we could pay our proper respects.
Tammy, Alexander and myself will always cherish the small time we spent with Peter when he coached Alexander. Peter was the kind of person you could just tell was different and special. Peter was simply a great man and a good example of a Christian man.
We will keep the family in our thoughts and prayers.
Charley, Tammy, Alexander & Madeline Donnici
