I worked on a few projects with Peter at Salesforce and he always had a smile. Many fond memories of chatting in the hallway.

You will always live in our hearts and prayers.

I worked with Peter at Salesforce and he was one of the kindest people I've met. He would always go out of his way to help everyone. He would always be brimming with energy and positivity even when he was going through what could be described as one of the most difficult phases in ones life. It sucks that this happened to one of the best people I know.
My deepest condolences to Peter's family. May his soul Rest In Peace.

I had the pleasure of working with Peter at Salesforce--he was a wonderful co-worker and friend. Many fond memories of our team getting pizza for lunch or meeting in conference room S. I will miss Peter so much.

I worked on the same team with Peter at ExactTarget 5 or 6 years ago. I was new to development work and Peter helped me a lot. By a lot, I mean I was constantly nagging him with questions and he spent many hours sitting and troubleshooting issues with me. Through it all, he never once grew frustrated or did anything to make me feel like he'd rather be doing something else.

One of my favorite memories of Peter was the time he was doing a push-up challenge at work. There was at least a week where he was dropping and doing 30 push-ups every 30 minutes, or something crazy like that. As with anything Peter did at work, he was totally committed to it, but still having fun in a way that made the office a brighter place to be.

Peter was one of the kindest, most generous people I've ever worked with and will always be an inspiration to me personally and professionally. He will be greatly missed.

We knew Peter when he was in grade school and middle school. He was our grandson, Nathan Moore's best bud. He went camping with us at Raccoon State Recreation Park. He and Nathan slept in a tent and had a great time. We knew Peter would do great things in his life. He was the most lovable little guy. We are so very, very saddened to hear of his passing. May your family find the peace of God with every comfort afforded. Our prayers for your family.

I couldn't be more for a loss of words. It wasn't too long ago that Peter and I attended some training together. We had a great time working as a team and shared an excellent lunch together. Peter talked very openly about his condition as I asked how he had been doing. He was so positive in his words and had tremendous confidence in his ability to work through his condition. As I found out about his passing, I was shocked.

My sincere gratitude for the opportunity know him and to work with him. May the Lord's blessings be upon him and his entire family. #Ohana

I never met Peter, but my husband spoke so highly of him. I am saddened to hear of his death and send prayers to his family, specifically his wife and children. Heaven gained a good one, but those earthside will forever miss him.

Peter was loved by everyone and my family is no exception. He meant the world to my daughter and she loved "Coach Pete" and was so blessed to have him help teach her not only soccer, but how to be a good person. He was always kind and gentle and he will be missed...
