He was the best husband, Dad, and granddad ever. He truly cared about his community and in making the world a better place.

He had been a maintenance supervisor at the Owens Corning Fiberglas Company in Ashton, R.I. Peter had served in the U.S. Merchant Marines during World War II in both the Atlantic and Mediterranean Sea war zones, earning him an Honorable Discharge from the U.S. Coast Guard. Peter was a member of the Cactus Mariners of Tucson, and a member of the VFW Post #0827, as well as the American Legion Post #66 in Green Valley.

Peter was brilliant, kind, and thoughtful. A huge void exists now and our hearts are broken.
