The family wishes to thank you for your kind thoughts, prayers and condolences. Peter, “Dad”, “Grandpa” was such an incredible person that no words can really do him justice. He was always there for his family; he was loving, funny, courageous, hard working, tough, ingenious, creative, considerate, supportive, and an inspiration to his children, who are all hoping to meet the parenting bar that he set for them. He was also a loving and considerate husband, a good friend, and a devoted son to his parents. Suffice to say, everyone listed above (and more) will miss him dearly. And although our hearts have a giant hole in them today, we know that he would only want us to remember the MANY good times we all shared, and to only smile for him, not cry. We love you, Peter. Thank you for everything you brought to our lives and the way you’ve helped shape our characters. We will carry you with us forever.
