Peter hired me in 1990 to help him with programming functions at Hardesty & Hanover. 25 years later I am still here and still think about the great time I had working along side him. He was a great guy and a true professional. He will sorely be missed !

To aunt Dorothy, Mary Ellyn, Larry, Katherine, and Marcia, my most sincere condolences for the passing of uncle Peter. If their was a local rat pack, like Sinatra, Davis, Martin,
Uncle Ed, my dad, and Uncle Pete would be it. They and their families made it special growing up. I am so sorry I could not be there to say good-bye. Please know you and Uncle Peter are in my prayers as the rat pack has been re-united. Peace be with you all this day. God bless.
