Not sure what to say?

Dear Dullea extended family:

I have fond memories of having playful, humorous times with Darcie and Peter in the early 1970's. Life choices took we 3 to different communities. Peter and I came across each other when he was with the Santa Barbara area office of the Public Defender's office and I was a Deputy Probation Officer.

So I am sending you all unconditional love and hugs.

Peter will be missed by all at Nature Track. You were an inspiration to many of the children you touched.
Dennis and Carole Nord

I did not know Peter well but he was one of the few dedicated souls that volunteered to help me with mountain plover surveys on the Carrizo Plain National Monument. He was a sweet man with a sweet dog whom he loved dearly. After reading his bio I see that he was much more. My condolences to all of his friends and family.

Sorry for the lost of your beloved one. May happy memories of times spent with him, support from family and friends soothe your heart. Also may God's loyal love sustain everyone. PSALMS 119 verse 76. Sincerely yours.

Peter has been my friend since we were in college, a long time, clearly, not long enough. I already miss knowing that I will get a quick response when I phone or email. A sad time for Peter's family & friend's.

I had the pleasure of being able to attend a class taught by Peter Dullea while I was attending college in Santa Barbara during the early 90s. His love of the law was apparent, his humor was infectious and I really came to admire the man behind the glasses. He ended up taking me under his wing a bit as I had no family and was literally on my own in the walk of life. I did some work for his firm and his kindness and care helped define the person I am today. I am eternally grateful for his...

Can't believe my old co-conspirator and Harbor-rat buddy is gone. How many recall what an avid fisherman he was, on the Navy Pier in the days of the Harbor View Motel?

Peter was one of the finest men I've had the good fortune of knowing. He was a caring and loving individual, a fine attorney and a friend to those who needed one. Everyone will miss you Peter but you'll not be forgotten!!!

So very sorry to hear of your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this time.
