Peter T. C. Bramhall ’56 died on March 13, 2014, in Falmouth, Maine.
He was born on February 28, 1934, in Portland, and prepared for college at Deering High School and Governors Academy. He graduated cum laude from Bowdoin, a member of Zeta Psi fraternity, and served as reunion chair, organizing every class reunion since graduation. He faithfully returned for reunion every year but one, and he was the proud recipient of the Polar Bear Award in 2013. He joined the investment firm of Hornblower and Weeks upon graduation and soon became manager of his branch office and later vice president. In 1994, he joined Prudential Securities (now Wachovia Securities) and retired in 2003 after 49 years. As a Mayflower descendant, he was proud of his colonial heritage and his family connection to George Bramhall, who settled on Portland’s western Promenade in 1680. He served on numerous United Way committees, on the Advisory Board (past chairman) of the Salvation Army, as a trustee of Westbrook College and Portland Harbor Museum, and as a board member of Tate House. He was also a lifelong member of the Portland Yacht Club. He is survived by his wife of nearly fifty-seven years, Hope Palmer Bramhall; daughters Faith B. Rodenkirk, Elizabeth B. Twombly, Alison P. Bramhall, and Sarah B. Reynolds; six grandchildren; and a sister, Priscilla B. Hodges.
