Our family was blessed with being in the care of "Doctor Pete"
from 1964 until his retirement. Over the years our friendship grew and he even "talked" me into a mission trip to Ganado, AZ. That trip has been a touchstone in my life. Beside his being a great physician, he was a man to be emulated. Rest in Peace my friend.
Dr Piper was a joy to be around and his influence on others in so many ways is huge. He was a wonderful friend to my parents and we are all lucky to have him touch our lives.

Pete was one of the members of an informal bible study group that met for breakfast 6:30 monday morning. His standing order of two dippy eggs always brought a chuckle . He was a dear friend and my familys doctor for 30 years,a gifted man of medicine. James P Murphy Ph.d
I had the privilege of practicing with Pete for many years. He was a great teacher, mentor, colleague and friend.
One of my favorite times with him was when my wife Kathy and I accompanied Pete and Annie to the last Orioles game ever played at Memorial Stadium on Oct.6, 1991. It was such an emotional game, at the end all the old players and current ones came out on to the field one at a time and walked to the position they played. Pete had tears in his eyes.
Pete was a great doctor, still the best I've ever known. He lived a life of service to others! He will be greatly missed.
Dear Piper Family,
Dr. Piper was a wonderful dedicated physician and gentleman. I remember Dr. Piper making house calls when I was very small. He would walk up to our door with his black bag to take care of me. Then we went to him at Dallastown Family Practice,and now my family still goes there. He will always be remembered. With sincere sympathy, Anne Wagman Burger
Dr.Piper will be missed but always remembered as a kind, caring soul that my family had the priviledge of benefit from his medical care. We started our visits with him on Main st. in Dallastown until his retirement from the D-town Family Practice. He blessed so many. Thank you Dr. Piper, God smiles upon you.
Dear Dan and family,
Our prayers are with you, what a wonderful man/doctor your dad was!!

I have been boarding my horse(s) at Dr. Piper's farm in Dallastown for the past 18 years. I learned of Dr. Piper's true compassion of all living things when my mare had a foal that almost died. He and his wife came to the barn and prayed for her little life to be saved and I feel it really did help in her recovery. I was truly touched that he would take the time to do what may have seemed like such a small thing to some, but to me it meant alot. Your heartfelt caring and compassion will truly be missed.
My thoughts and prayers are with the Piper family. My mom was Helen Campbell, she was a nurse at the Dallastown Family Practice Center with Dr Piper. I feel as if I grew up with him. He was a great man and a wonderful doctor. They don't have many doctors like him anymore
Dear Piper Family,
Our family expresses heartfelt sympathy to all of you at this time. Dr. Piper was a excellent and proficient in his profession as well as his life. He was always dedicated and gentleman. We admire his missionary work and devotion to our Lord. He always listen carefully to his patients and family of the patients.I personally remember as a young LPN grad at Rest Haven (where they were the Medical Drs. there) I called with a problem a pt. had. He asked me if I had gotten the vital signs. I stated no--He stated well you get them then call me. I never did that again. Great Teacher! I remember him helping my mother after the ED discharged her and didn't read xray right. He told me to get her over right away and he was mad about the findings after reread. Then this was the greatest reason I admired him. He had a pt. in the hospital that had surgery. The pt. was going bad and he did everything and couldn't figure out. He called in the Colonel Dr. B ( won't reveal the full name. The solved the problem. I respected him before this and I really respected him for that. His life revealed to me and my family he walked and lived the way Christ would want us all to do.
God Bless you all and may you be comforted by our Lord Jesus Christ.

Dr. Piper was our family doctor from the time we came to York in 1965 until he left the practice at Dallastown Family Medicine. A great doctor and all around good guy. A life well spent. My sympathies to the family.
My sympathy goes out to the family. Dr. Piper was a wonderful doctor. I have gone to him since childhood and remember his compassion as a devoted doctor.
Dear Piper Family,
Dr. Piper was a wonderful dedicated physician and a gentleman. He was a great supporter of our nursing home in its day. He was always just a phone call away. His patience with his patients is what I will remember him for. He will be greatly missed.

Doc Piper was the epitome of a true doctor. He not only practiced medicine,he shared his faith openly and honestly. As a young wife and mother,doc met that need for me many times. Thirty years later,one of the highlights of my year was when he visited the store and i got my yearly hug and encouragement. His guidance and gentle spirit will never be forgotten. Sympathies to all the family,love you Kim and Dan,my prayers are with you all.
