To the entire family,
Peter was a friend and neighbor growing up in Henderson. Meadow Lane and Summitt Road were great places to grow up and we are all connected with memories of fun times. Sending love and hugs.

To Darlene and Family

My deepest sympathies on the passing of Peter. He was a great guy who taught me a lot about business while working together at Vellumoid. I wasn't a tennis player therefore never played against him. He did on occasion invite me to the club to watch him play and must say he missed his calling. Rest easy in Peace Peter

I played tennis almost every day for the better part of 15 years; from the juniors, into high school, and straight on through college. In all that time, I never had more fun on a court than when I was playing doubles with Peter as my partner. Peter was a great player and an even better person. The only thing bigger than his game, was his personality. He lit up every room he walked into and you always knew when he was around. We had drifted over the past 15 years as I played less and his battle with ALS made communicating more difficult. I wish that I had been able to tell him how much I still treasure the summers we spent competing together. I’ll always remember Peter as he was when we played... full of energy and with a love of life that touched everyone he knew. God bless you, Peter.
