Received the following from one of our CNY members, and so far can not locate an obituary online.
Peter R. Arteaga died on July 4th; he was 75 years old. Pete graduated from Homer High School in Cortland County and served in the U.S. Air Force. While in the Air Force, he was trained as a K-9 handler and completed a tour in Viet Nam, where he was assigned to base security. In 1970, Pete entered Division service. He served most of his career in Troop "C" and was the long-time station commander at SP Ithaca. For several years, Pete was a NYSTPBA non-commissioned officer delegate. He retired as a zone sergeant in 1998 and shortly afterwards Pete and his wife relocated to Myrtle Beach, SC.
It appears there will be no services.
