Celebrating the life of

Peter "Petey" Robert O'Rourke

March 23, 1967 - May 14, 2023


We are saddened to announce the passing of Peter “Petey” Robert O’Rourke. He passed away peacefully at home on May 14th, 2023. Petey was born on March 23rd, 1967, in Newark, New Jersey and was raised in Astoria, New York. He loved to meet new people, never met a stranger, and bragged about how much he loved and adored his only child, Shannon O’Rourke. 

Petey worked as an electrician for over 15 years and enjoyed his work as well as all the friendships he created with the people he worked with over the years. Some of his favorite things to do were to shout “J-E-T-S Jets! Jets! Jets!,” spend time with his daughter and crack jokes.  

Petey was always such a Happy-Go-Lucky person. He was loved by many and will be deeply missed. 

He is survived by his only child and his pride and joy, Shannon O’Rourke, his sister Regina Nacinovich, his nephews Robert Bucheister, Nicholas Nacinovich, and Joey Nacinovich as well as many other nieces, nephews, great nieces and great nephews.  

He was proceeded in death by his mother Patricia O’Rourke, his father Robert O’Rourke and his dearest friends Jimmy and Adam 



A candle has been lit!

You will be deeply missed! Your pride and joy, Shannon will always be taken care of! Rest in peace.
