John G. Peetz Obituary
John Peetz passed away January 20, 2016 at 92 years of age. A multisport athlete in high school, John's athletic endeavors at UCLA were cut short by World War II, where he served as a lieutenant in Europe. Returning to UCLA after the war, he majored in accounting, leading to a lifelong career at Price Waterhouse (now PwC), where he was a partner. UCLA also provided the love of his life, Elizabeth, who passed away in 2008. John donated his financial and management expertise to a number of charitable causes, including serving on the boards of the Drew Medical School in Los Angeles, the LA Opera company, and the Heart Association, which recognized him with the "Heart of Gold" award. He is survived by two sons, six grandchildren, and nine great-grandchildren, who will miss his gentle humor and thoughtfulness.
