He is survived by daughter Andrea Van Vreede & her husband Tom, daughter Amy Waldron & her husband Mike, daughter Jennifer Buermann and grandchildren Julia, Charlotte & Colin, and many other friends, family and loved ones. His wife Dorothy died in 2002. Peter received his Bachelor of Arts Degree in History from Upsala College, his Master Degree in Psychology from Rutgers University and his Doctorate in Educational Psychology from Temple University. Peter devoted his professional life to bettering the lives of Special needs children, working in New Jersey for Mercer County Special Services, and later for the Children's Home Society in Trenton and for Life Roots and Child Guidance both in Philadelphia. Upon retirement he engaged his love of historic architecture and began volunteering for the Philadelphia Foundation for Architecture, eventually developing a walking tour of Historic Newtown Borough in Bucks County, PA, where he lived with his family from 1977 to 2008. He also served on the Newtown Borough Historic Architecture Review Board, as well as on the Board of Valley Day School in Yardley, PA. Peter loved to travel and frequently visited Maine, England, Ireland and France. He also loved animals and adopted many homeless cats throughout his life.
