Peter Brail Tribute


WALLINGFORD - Peter P. Brail, 81, of Wallingford, CT, entered into eternal rest on January 5, 2024. He was born in Pittsfield, MA, the beloved son of the late Doris (Antonzick) and Peter T. Brail, and the cherished husband of Christine Ellen (Martin) Brail.

Peter graduated from St. Michael College in 1965, earning the distinguished title of "Golden Knight" by the Knights of Columbus that same year. He embarked on a dedicated career with General Electric, starting in the ordinance division in Pittsfield, MA, and later moving to the corporate headquarters in Fairfield in 1978. His commitment to GE spanned 35 years, culminating in a well-deserved retirement in 2000.

In 1963, Peter married the love of his life, Christine, recently celebrating 60 years of marriage. Their love story began at the Boys Club dance when they were 15, and the rest was history. Post-retirement, the couple embarked on numerous cross-country drives from CT to CA, stopping at all the state capitals along the way, with the only place their car didn’t reach being Hawaii. Their final grand adventure was an Alaskan cruise, creating lasting memories together.

Peter's faith also played a significant role in his life, and he was a devoted member of Holy Trinity Church. For many years, he faithfully served by collecting donations every Saturday.

Above all, family meant everything to Peter, and his commitment to family was unwavering. Inseparable from his wife and adoring his children and grandchildren, he was known as a dedicated husband, father, and grandfather. Peter embodied the strength and stability that his name, "Peter," symbolizes—truly the “rock” of the family. He leaves behind a legacy of love, faith, and commitment that will be remembered dearly by all who had the privilege of knowing him.

Peter is predeceased by his son, David T. Brail, and granddaughter, Alexandra E. Frey.

Peter is survived by his loving wife, Christine; children, Peter C. Brail (wife, Mary), Carrie E. Brail, and Amie M. Cavaliere (husband, Jeff); grandchildren, Peter J. Brail (wife, Amber), Amanda N. Brail (husband, Erik Pinon), Ryan J. Cavaliere, and Jacob A. Cavaliere.

Services for Peter will be private to the family. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made in Peter’s honor to the Wallingford Men’s Shelter. B.C. Bailey Funeral Home is honored to have been entrusted with Peter’s final care and arrangements.
