Peter Daniel Hallissy

Peter Daniel Hallissy, of Cotuit, but formerly of Lowell, MA passed away peacefully on August 6, 2022, at Massachusetts General Hospital.

The best days of his long life were those spent with Rebecca, his wife of nearly fifteen years.

Born in Biddeford, Maine, on July 3, 1940, he was the son of the late John J. and the late Sheila (Battle) Hallissy. Peter grew up in Lowell and was a graduate of St. Margaret Grammar School and Keith Academy Class of 1958.

After graduation, he enlisted in the 26th Yankee Division of the National Guard and held a lifelong respect for veterans and an interest in military history.

Peter was a self-made man, a visionary in his field. His passion for automobiles took him from Peter’s Auto Sales on Moody Street in Lowell in the 1960s to multiple dealerships in the Merrimack Valley: Colonial Chevrolet in Chelmsford, Hallissy Chevrolet and Hallissy Lincoln Mercury in Lowell, the innovative Auto Mall in Tewksbury and finally, Dartmouth Dodge/Chrysler/Jeep in North Dartmouth, MA. His Lowell complex was one of the largest auto dealerships in the United States at the time.

He retired in 2009, but never lost his love for cars and the business. His employees were family and remained with him for decades, and he was a generous supporter of community causes.

Peter is survived by his beloved wife Rebecca (Procopio) Hallissy of Cotuit, and his dear sister, Sheila Hallissy of Lowell, his brother-in-law Mark Procopio of La Jolla CA., as well as many cousins from coast to coast. He was predeceased by his stepson Christian Ewton, with whom he shared a deep and loving bond.

Peter and Rebecca enjoyed life on the Cape and they frequently travelled to Rebecca’s hometown of La Jolla, California, and to Palm Beach, Florida, but a part of his heart always remained in Lowell. “What’s going on in Lowell?” and “What’s in the Sun?” were always of interest. He cherished his many friends.

It was Peter’s wish that services be private with no calling hours. A Celebration of Life will be held at a later time. Those wishing may make donations in his memory to Peter and Rebecca’s favorite charities the Boston Children’s Hospital , the Pine Street Inn , and Feed the Children E-condolences to Arrangements by the O’DONNELL FUNERAL HOME – LOWELL – MA – (978) – 458-8768.
