Palm Beach, Fla.
- Peter G. Alfond, of Palm Beach, Florida, who was an intrepid explorer of life and a generous giver of love, died on July 10, 2017, from malaria. He had celebrated his 65th birthday in May, and had just returned from his first trip to East and South Africa. With him at his bedside were his four children and his three siblings.
A mentor, a man of kindness, a fervent believer in the mind-body connection, an inspired philanthropist, a successful international businessman, and a highly creative thinker, Peter invited everyone who ever met him into a more colorful world of the possible. He reveled in conversation (the longer the better), in deep connections with his extended family, in creating places and spaces for those who loved him (and there were many), in equal measures of green drinks and ice cream, and in the accomplishments of his four children, who were everything to him.
He leaves his daughters, Rebekah (Carlos), Sarah and Deborah; his son, Kyle (Melissa); his sister, Susan; two older brothers, Theodore (Barbara) and William (Joan); and three cherished granddaughters.
Private services have been held. A memorial service is being planned for the fall.
