A CELEBRATION OF LIFE
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our friend and colleague, John Peterson, PT, MTC, ATC. John was born on October 31, 1961 and passed away after a courageous battle against cancer on June, 24, 2019. John leaves behind his loving wife Linda, and two children, Alyssa, and Ryan. John was a foundingmember of our clinical staff and helped create the friendly atmosphere that has become a cornerstone of how CPTE treats patients. He always said, “We take getting you better seriously, and we all have fun doing it.” A
Center for Physical Therapy and Exercise CPTE As an avid athlete in his youth, John developed his love for athletic training. He was instrumental in developing and managing CPTE’s Athletic Training program and maintaining relationships with Alvirne, Merrimack, and Souhegan High Schools. He forged athletic training and physical therapy relationships with many New Englan Sports events and organizations. John will be remembered for the joy that he brought others. As a self described Halloween child, John was always counted on to have one of the best and funniest costumes every year. He loved music and would likely be found singing, mildly off key, to Jimmy Buffet songs while treating in one of our clinics. More than anything, John loved interacting with people and had a special way of caring for people and sharing his joy with others. John has truly been a friend to all of us and we feel his loss keenly. We’ll never forget you John, nor the example you set for us to follow. We celebrate your life and your love of your family, friends and helping all you came in contact with. Your legacy will carry on at CPTE. Thank you. graduate of Northeastern University, John has been a licensed physical therapist since 1984. He served as Director of Clinical Services at CPTE for over twenty years. In that time, John has been a vital part of what makes our clinics and staff so great; hiring and training many of our current therapists as well as mentoring countless clinicians and athletic trainers through the years. He always took the success of each person seriously, whether a patient, colleague, student, or friend.
