Peter was preceded in death by His Father, Timothy. His Mother Edith, and His stepfather, Arthur. He is survived by His brother, Kevin, HIs daughter, Melissa, His son, Tory and Nephew Kevin Thomas.
His father was a military man, and they traveled a lot, Peter changing schools. He told me how he learned to ride horses while stationed in Turkey. He was born in Albany New York and lived in New Jersey, California, Turkey, He then married his first wife, Nancy and she was military, and they moved to Alaska and then Japan.
Peter was a hard worker and enjoyed life. His career began before he even had a driver’s license He enjoyed and got quite good at fixing things. He got a position at a tv station working a camera. He told them he knew how to run it, he really didn’t but he learned as he ran it.
after he got married, they moved to Alaska, and he became the station manager. Froom that start he moved onto manufacturing. And that led to automatic equipment. this led him to travel to many unusual places, Trinidad, Argentina, Chile to name a few.
Pete had so many funny stories to tell about the places he worked in. Like an anaconda snake slithering under the factory floor in south america. anohter the monkeys stealing his lunch.
i think the craziest story how he went someplace in south America, they had the local natives helping them. they were short in stature wearing not much clothes, and carrying blowguns! They told Pete not to socialize with them, because they could be unpredictable and possible dangerous. Of course, Peter didn’t listen and had a great adventure later with them. telling everyone how he ran through the jungle, lost his shoe in the mud, and ate meat off a bone!
Pete and I met when our daughters were best friends in the sixth grade. after He and Nancy got divorced, we got married in 2008. we loved to eat out in restaurants and we got an c class RV. We went on 5 trips in it and had a wonderful time.
Peter loved to laugh and have fun.His last place of employment was Madico window films. He was proud of that place and enjoyed telling me everything that he and his coworkers had done.
We attended Our church Community Bible Baptist church where we found our church family.
Peter had a lot of health problems in his last days. But three days before he left, he told me that he was ready to officially go forward and receive Jesus and be baptized, and for that I find comfort.
