Rancho Bernardo
Our beloved Peter was taken from us too soon, peacefully passing in his sleep October 9 from an unexpected cardiac event. Peter graduated from Mount Carmel HS in 1993. He was awarded a ROTC Scholarship, attended the University of Notre Dame, and earned his B.S. in Mechanical Engineering in 1997. He honorably served in the US Army's 1st Calvary Division from 1997-2001, deploying to Bosnia in 1998. He went on to achieve a rewarding career as an engineer and project manager for Injex, Abbott Laboratories and finally, General Atomics. Peter was dedicated to his work but valued family above all. He was a loving husband, father, son and friend. Residing with his family in Rancho Bernardo, he coached baseball and soccer and volunteered. He will be remembered for his kindness, intelligence, and quick wit. He is survived by his wife of 8 years Molly, children James (7) & Elizabeth (5), parents Jane & Ted Thomsen, brother Ted, sister Anna (Mark) Sousa, parents-in-laws Brita & Jay Posedel, sisters-in-law Emily Posedel and Carin (Dave) Causey, nephews Brett & Tyler Sousa, and Owen & Drew Causey. A funeral Mass will be held at San Rafael Catholic Church on Tuesday October 26 at 10am. Reception to follow in the church hall. With gratitude, memorial contributions may be made to an education fund for his children.
