Pete was an inspiring mentor of mine in the late 1960s when we worked together for nearly six months in upcountry Laos. I was a brand new employee and Pete taught me a great deal about our organization, our work, and life overall. His rich life story and Asian experiences were so profoundly useful for me, a person who had never been out of the USA before that time. His personal and professional enthusiasm and joy stayed with me throughout my career. Though we had few opportunities to meet each other over the intervening years, I constantly recalled that time we worked so closely, usually when I was relating his many, many anecdotes and ideals he passed along to me. I regret that I received his obit after his funeral and was unable to attend. However, my prayers are with him and his family for your great loss. May perpetual light shine upon his soul.
