Obituary for Alan Robert Pereske

Alan Robert  Pereske
Alan Robert Pereske, 71, of Saranac Lake passed away with Suzanne and Meadow by his side on February 28, 2018 at the University Of Vermont Medical Center in Burlington.

Alan was born February 17, 1947 to Adam and Alma Pereske in Little Falls, NY. He is survived by his wife Suzanne Snyder Pereske, sister Doris Pereske and her husband Jeffery Platsky and their children Adam and Rebecca, in-laws Jane Ann Snyder, James and Cecelia Snyder and their daughters Jessica and Lisa, other extended family and many lifelong friends as well as his beloved furry friends Meadow and Sydney.

A good man, kind and gentle, Alan enjoyed his life in the Adirondacks. His love of all things Adirondack, its history, furniture, and culture fueled his early interest in antiques which became his passion and career as the owner and partner with Suzanne in their business, Alan Pereske Antiques, Lake Placid. He was happiest while enjoying the beautiful mountains and lakes of the Adirondacks with Suzanne at his side, whether it was kayaking or golfing in the summer or skiing on the slopes of Whiteface in the winter. His quiet manner and dry wit will be missed by all.

Funeral arrangements are in care of the Fortune-Keough Funeral; Home in Saranac Lake. Funeral services will take place at the convenience of the family.

Donations in memory of Alan may be made to the Tri-Lakes Humane Society of Saranac Lake or the Cousteau Society, P. O. Box 506, Etna, NH 03750-0506. Family and friends can also share their memories and sign the online guestbook at
