Peter Leontieff


Mr. Peter Mark “Pete” Leontieff, 66, husband of Brenda Marshall Leontieff and a 28-year resident of the Capeville community, passed away Tuesday, Nov. 28, 2023, at Sentara Princess Anne Hospital in Virginia Beach.

A native of California, he was the son of Pete Michael Leontieff, of Onancock, and the late Linda Lephew Leontieff. He was known as Mr. Fixit, had a courageous smile, and was always helping anyone in need. Even in his passing he was able to provide sight to two grateful people by being an eye donor. He loved making sure the birds were fed, was an excellent cook, enjoyed bonfires with Yuengling Light, and liked listening to music while tinkering on his projects. Being barefoot and shirtless was his thing, and he was loved by many.

In addition to his loving wife, he is survived by three children, Corinne Leontieff (Brandon), of Hampstead, N.C., Ryan Leontieff (Jamie), of Middletown, Ohio, and Janele Frymier, of Beulaville, N.C.; three brothers and sisters, Andy Leontieff (Debbie), of Carmel, N.Y., David Leontieff (Elizabeth) of Austin, Texas, and Donna Leontieff, of Accomac; and four grandchildren, Wyatt, Palmer, Jazmin, and Sean.

Funeral services will be conducted Saturday, Dec. 9, 2023, at 2 p.m. at Doughty Funeral Home with the Rev. Randy Lewis officiating. Family will join friends at the funeral home Friday evening from 4 to 6 p.m.
