While I didn't know the family, I did know Peter. In 2nd grade we got in trouble with the nuns at Gesu for talking at mass during our 1st Communion Practice .Peter, myself and Tom Dudek were always the 3 shortest guys in our grade. In the class pictures we were always the ones in the front line. He was a really nice kid when we were growing up though very spirited. Sorry to hear the sad news.

Suzanne and Family, We were so saddened to hear of Peter's untimely passing. We both knew Peter from the '70's when he would come to visit his cousin, Bobby, at Eastern Michigan University and we continued to see him a few times in Boston when he was here on business. He always made us laugh and was such a joy to be around. Our deepest sympathies to all of his family.
