Peter Crowther Mutty, Sr. died peacefully in Baton Rouge, LA on November 8, 2019 at Clarity Hospice. Peter was born in Concord, Massachusetts in 1932 to Phyllis A. Dow (Mutty) and John E. Mutty, Sr., one of five children. Peter graduated from Concord High School and attended college at Norwich University Military Academy in Northfield, VT in 1950 with a 4-year scholarship to play football. He graduated with honors with a Bachelors' degree in Mechanical Engineering and was first in his class in military achievement. He then entered the US Army in 1955 during the post Korean War period. He served for 4 ½ years specializing as a fixed wing and helicopter pilot. He continued to fly until age 77. Flying was one of his favorite activities. After graduation from college, Mr. Mutty married Jane Gill (deceased), of West Concord, MA. They raised three children: Peter Jr., Julie, and Gregory. Mr. Mutty practiced civil and mechanical engineering for organizations including GE, Raytheon and FEMA. He also owned and operated construction and development firms retiring in late 2018. In 1993 Mr. Mutty married Dianne M. D'Avy of Opelousas, LA and lived in Baton Rouge, where they were members of St. Aloysius Catholic Church. Mr. Mutty was preceded in death by his parents, John E. and Phyllis A. Dow (Mutty), his wife Dianne's parents Clayton and Clara D'Avy and by siblings, John E. Mutty, Jr., Lewis D.
