On Wednesday, March 29, 2023, Peter Boubourekas, loving father, son, uncle, brother, friend, and sheriff, fell asleep with the Lord at age 54.  Pete was born April 2, 1968 outside of Sydney, Australia to Nick Boubourekas and the late Maria Boubourekas.  He had two Siblings John (Sotiria) Boubourekas and Anna (Gus) Tsamis.  He is survived by his children Nicholas, Nolan and Noel.  He was a proud uncle to Andy, Nick, Niko and Maria. He was a loving cousin to Nikolaos, George, John, Anthe, Irini, Aiki, Eleni, and many more in Greece.  Pete moved to the United States from Australia in 1970 with my parents and brother where they started to live their new life. 

Pete went to school at St. Francis de Sales High School in Chicago where he graduated in 1986.  He went onto attend Calumet College of St. Joseph in Hammond, IN. 

Pete  joined the Cook County Sheriff’s Department back in March of 1993.  He became a police officer on November of 1998.  He served for almost 30 years.  He passed away 2 days shy of his 30 Year Retirement.

Pete made everyone laugh and forever kept his 3 loving children the priority of his life. He had a good heart and served his community.  He will be dearly missed. May His Memory be Eternal! All arrangements entrusted to Orrico Kourelis Funeral Services Inc.
