Peter, Amy C, Alan T, and I shared a house in New Market, NH during college. When I think of people in my life who've set stellar examples, Peter is at the top of the list; always caring without being too heavy. He was one of my dearest friends during those impressionable years we'd go hiking, study together, listen to live music. I just heard of his passing and, although we've been out of touch for many years, I've been deeply affected. I can only imagine how you, his closest family are feeling. So sad, my heart goes out to you.
I was reminiscing about Peter with my family last night - one of the images that really stands out the most is that Peter would always (unassumingly) pick up trash he found scattered on the ground and put it in his pocket to later dispose of properly. This had an impact on our 17 year old daughter! This is how I remember Peter, a good man (even at that young age) who knew his place in the world was to do good work and modestly set an example for others to follow. May his memory be blessed. So many will miss you, Peter, thank you for the opportunity to have known you and been affected by your quiet wisdom and humor.
