Pedro "Pete" Boulton, passed away on November 20, 2023, at the age of 55 in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Born on August 8, 1968 in Newport, Rhode Island, Pete was a man who lived his life displaying kindness and gratitude to all he met.
Pete was fiercely loyal to his family and friends, always putting their needs above his own. He had a remarkable ability to shrug off the bad and focus on the good in life, spreading his positive attitude wherever he went. Hard working and caring, Pete was someone who motivated people to be their best.
Pete spent time between New Mexico and Alaska making significant relationships with the people he worked with. He started work on Prince of Wales Island logging in Tongass National Forest. Later he moved to Cordova, Alaska. He progressed from an entry level position at Ocean Beauty Seafoods to eventually managing their fleet of fishing vessels. After taking some time to open BoulTawn's Bagelry in Santa Fe, New Mexico (with long time friend Tawn Dix), hard work and dedication brought him back to Alaska this summer where he worked with Silver Bay Seafoods in Kodiak.
Pete is survived by father John Boulton and stepmother Catherine Wrenn Boulton of Idaho Springs, CO; brother Jack Boulton of Denver, CO; brother William Boulton of Temecula, CA; uncle Joe Lamb of Berkeley, CA; aunt Georgia Boulton Pearson of Corrales, NM; aunt Anita Boulton DuPree of Rio Rancho, NM; aunt Martha Boulton of Rio Rancho, NM; aunt Mary Kay Boulton of Santa Fe, NM; aunt Rita Boulton Wolfe of Missoula, MT; aunt Mary Jo Boulton Chavez of Bloomfield, NM and many cherished cousins.

He is preceded in death by his Mother Susan Lamb of Madrid, NM, Aunt Ellen Boulton of Rio Rancho, NM, aunt Alice Boulton of Albuquerque, NM, and aunt Frances Boulton of Bernalillo, NM
