Hello Everyone, thank you for your love and support. Vanessa and I are truly thankful. Below you will find Dad’s funeral information. Please read the “please note” in bold as this is important.
We want you to know that our Dad HATED funerals, as he wanted to remember the person in their life, not their death. Of course, we know that funerals are for the living, but we still want to honor Dad’s memory.
The website hosting this information is mine [Victoria Yore] that I co-own with my Boyfriend, Terrence Drysdale. Vanessa and I discussed that I would host the information here, instead of the random funeral home or church websites.
If you see ads on this website, that is how we make money. Just by seeing an ad we make a teeny tiny amount of money. I considered shutting them off, but Dad was proud of my business and even in death, Dad would want me to make a buck.
Dad loved his businesses and wanted my sister and I to be successful. Leaving the ads on this site are our small tribute to him, because he wanted the best for us and would be horrified that I would try and NOT make money to “respect” him.
Below you will find information regarding the services we have set up for our Dad.
Wake/Viewing-Trinity Memorial Gardens
Wednesday, May 19, 2021. 6-8pm
12609 Memorial Dr, Trinity, FL 34655
On Wednesday, we will be gathering to pay our respects to our Dad at Trinity Memorial Gardens. Hours will be from 6-8pm. Please wear a face mask as required by the Funeral Home, even if vaccinated. No sad music here, we will be playing rock music from Dad’s favorite station, 97X.
Funeral Services-Saint Timothy Catholic Church
Thursday, May 20, 2021. 1pm
17512 Lakeshore Rd, Lutz, FL 33558
Funeral services for our Dad will be held at his favorite church, Saint Timothies, on Thursday beginning at 1pm, in the main church. Dad never liked the day chapel, so we are arranging this in the “big church” and the music director will be Chase White, someone we grew up with playing the music at church and also did singing/piano lessons with. Dad loved Chase’s music. We have picked out upbeat funeral songs as Dad didn’t like funerals or sad things.
PLEASE NOTE!!!!! We are asking everyone to wear their UGLIEST hiking boots [or tennis shoes] with their nicest outfit. Our Dad did not care about looks and his “fancy” outfit was a pair of ugly hiking boots with slacks and a collared shirt. He wore this get-up everywhere from court appearances to church to fancy occasions.
This is our way of honoring Dad. Everyone knows that Peter Yore loved his ugly hiking boots and wore them with every outfit. For the funeral, you are encouraged to wear your ugliest hiking boots/sneakers/ratty shoes, with your nicest attire.
Immediately After Mass
12609 Memorial Dr, Trinity, FL 34655
All are encouraged to come with us to the cemetery as we lay my Dad in his final resting place, handpicked by my sister and I.
We will head to the cemetery directly after the funeral service is concluded.
There will be a post-burial gathering at Trinity Memorial Gardens, immediately after burial. All are welcome and we will be serving light refreshments. The funeral home is right on the same property as the cemetery so it will be close by.
Memories Of Peter
I have created a Google Form so that you can share who you are, your relationship with our Dad, and any memories that you have of him.
Our Dad helped so many people and touched so many hearts. The grieving process will last for the rest of our lives. Perhaps this will be something we can read together in the coming months or years.
Vanessa and I wanted to thank everyone again for their support. We are ugly criers and the grief we feel is something we can’t even put into words. We cannot fully process that this has happened. I just talked to him last Sunday and she just ate dinner with him last Thursday. And now we are writing his funeral information.
The hard reality is we have been robbed of 30 years of our lives. No wedding. No helping me buy my first house or RV. No being there when someone else passes. No fixing things for us anymore. The shift is monumental.
If you speak about my Dad, we have been saying that he was killed. He hasn’t “passed away” as that seems peaceful. He hasn’t “died” as that seems to be something nice. He was killed. Enjoying his bike ride one instant and dead from blunt force trauma the next.
We thank you again for support.
Vanessa and Victoria Yore
