Obituary of Peter L. Lais
Mr. Peter “Adirondack Pete” L. Lais, 58, of Amsterdam, New York, passed away on September 14, 2020 at St. Mary's Hospital. Born on February 14, 1962 to Thomas and Rosemary (Farrell) Lais, he attended local schools and was a graduate of Amsterdam High School.
After graduating, Pete enlisted in the United States Air Force. He proudly served his country for four years.
