Peter Daniel Paganelis, 34, of Lisle, IL passed away on September 22, 2021. Peter was born on January 7, 1987 to Peter Paganelis and Cynthia Dearth. Peter loved his family, friends and his two dogs, Jack and Dexter. He was passionate about motorcycles, concerts and spending time with those he loved. Peter spent time as both a teamster and a laborer and always had a passion for jobs in that field. When Peter was not spending time with loved ones or on his bike, he enjoyed going to the shooting range. Peter took a lot of pride in his tattoos, bike, home, guns and job. Peter was the kind of guy who could come into a room and strike up a conversation with anyone, which meant he had many friends. Peter would go out of his way to make someone he cared about feel loved and hated to see someone he cared about down. His family and friends will miss him greatly, but will remember him for all his best qualities and his huge heart all hidden behind that rough and tough exterior.

Peter is survived by his father, Peter; His mother, Cynthia; 2 brothers, Daniel (Kathleen) Paganelis and Matthew Paganelis; 2 sisters, Cheylene (Andrew) Dearth and Michaela (Andrew) Beverage; Nieces and nephews, Ryan, Evan, Leah, Sofia, Alexis, Ethan, Ben, Landon and Penelope; His grandma, Helen Chindlund; As well as his girlfriend, Tori Orlowski.
