The Ryan Family of Albion PA is deeply mourning the loss of Peter. We loved him dearly and shared his passion for life and "the game"......all of the girls had crushes on him and the whole house resounded with his laughter and good will when he visited. In 2007 we lost our youngest daughter, Anne, so we know there are no words to give you solace. We know your saddness has no measure. We send love to you and yours.

Mr and Mrs Sauer, Alex and Amanda -
From my dad, Ken and me, we want to say how deeply sad we are about Pete, how we are still numb from this news and how much we are thinking of all of you. There are no words that I can think of to write, but know that kind and wonderful memories are flooding my thoughts. - Joyce Macek
May your friends and family bring you comfort and help you through this difficult time, and may the hope to see your loved one again bring you peace.
I was so sadden to hear of Pete's passing. As a former employee of Shady Side and now disabled, I remember Pete stopping by from time to time at the gym to say hello. In this day and age it can be tough to find the good people out there. I was honored to have known him and my prayers to his family.
At this difficult time "Draw close to God and he will draw close to you."
My deepest sympathy for your loss.
God is for us a refuge and strength, A help that is readily to be found during difficult times...May God provide you with peace and comfort to endure the days ahead. Psalm 46:1
You brought laughter and joy to my life! May you find everlasting peace.
Please accept my sincere condolences during this time of your loss. Those who die God keeps in his memory because " they are precious in his eyes." (Psalms 116:15) With deepest sympathy.
Dear Georgia, Mark, and Alex, We are devastated to learn about Peter's sudden death!!! There are no words that can comfort you at this time, but we remember how you being there for us when our dad, husband passed away gave us such comfort. We will remember little curly haired Peter who could not say Megan and called me Deedah through junior high. When I spent the summer in Dobbs Ferry and drove into New York at night to see the sights with you and a 4 year old Peter was singing along to the Eagles at the top of his lungs! Rely on the memories to get you through this. Peter lives on through his children. "Shower them with love," as the song goes and he will in turn feel that love. Peter is on a different ride than the one into the city thy night at 4, but this is a ride of peace and he would want you to find peace in the joy that you gave him during his life.
Love and many hugs and prayers!
Our deepest sympathies to the Sauer family. Our prayers are with you and the Lord will see you thru this most difficult time.
Dave & Mary Thien, St. Louis, MO
I played little league baseball with Peter and he was always a great guy. He and his family were always a class act.
Such a jolt this moning when our little paper told of Peter's passing! It attests to his notority even in a place like "The Villages, Fl". Many memories even as an elementary school principal. Steller student, opening our gym so dad and Alex and Peter could do liitle work, Georgia and her husband involvment in so many activities at Conway School. One of the most memorable was their hosting of the retirement party of our outstanding teacher, Ruth Sullivan.
I am blessed to have been a small part of Peter,s life but am grateful to have known Peter and his parents!
Deepest condolences to the Sauer family. You are in my prayers.
We express our deepest sympathy to the Sauer family. Our prayers are with your family. May God be with you at this difficult time.

Pete served as a great mentor for me growing up in the Hill District of Pittsburgh, I'm thankful to have had the honor to meet him and Watch him play. He inspired me on all aspects of life and Pete will truly be missed.
Peter was a great person and athlete I had the pleasure of knowing at Stanford. Very sad to hear of his untimely passing. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.
My deepest regrets to his family and especially his children. its hard to lose a parent so young at such a young age. I pray for strength and comfort for all of you at this terrible time.

My prayers go out to you and Pete's family. I remember Pete as a fine young man, who used to come into my restaurant during his high school years. Red
My father, the late John Boris, and I had the pleasure of coaching Pete in a summer basketball league in Pittsburgh many years ago. Aside from being a wonderful talent, he was one of the classiest young men we had ever coached. I am so very sorry to hear of his passing. The entire Sauer family is in our thoughts and prayers during this very difficult time.
To the the family of Peter Sauer - May God give you peace and comfort through his word and the Lord Jesus Christ during this time of sorrow, I know that he will be missed by many.
Pete and I lived in the same dorm at Stanford. I will always remember him as a bright, humble, fundamentally good-natured person. His family should be very proud of the man they produced. We should all make such good use of the time we are given. You have our deepest condolences.
as a former colleague at Banc of America Securities I would like to offer my deepest condolences to Peter's family. Peter was a true gentleman - I have the fondest of memories working with him.
Really sad news. My deepest sympathy goes out to the entire Sauer Family.
I worked out in the Bay Area in the late 1990s & was a Stanford Basketball season ticket holder. Saw lots of Stanford Hoops back in the day, and Pete was part of those glory years, with Arthur Lee & Mark Madsen & Ryan Mendez, TimYoung, MikeMcDonald & the CollinsTwins.
Pete was a great Basketball Player & a great human being. A day of sadness, for sure, but everyone he came in contact with, he left a lasting positive imprint on them.
To end on a positive note, & see Pete as he was when he was happy, take a trip down MemoryLane by viewing this video of the ending of the Stanford vs RhodeIsland 1998 NCAA Mens Basketball Tournament FinalFour Game.
[All StanfordHoopsFans know this game ...with

Really great/happy footage of Pete at 0:46 & 4:50 seconds of this video. This is how I will always remember Pete. Here is the URL for the YouTube video:
Again my deepest sympathy to the entire SauerFamily.

May you rest peacefully. Aunt Ro
