I was  sadden today when I received the Taps that Peter passed away. He was my room mate my sophomore year. He was so nice and was supportive in all our collective activities both scholastic and military. I met Mary Anna, my wife, during that year and Peter was a good friend during that time. After graduation I lost contact with Peter until we had access to the class of 68 web site. We reestablished our relationship last year and exchanged our achievements and our family life with each other. Peter missed the 60's and the camaraderie that we had during our school years. He was a great PMC roommate/classmate and he specifically hoped we each would  have many happy years ahead of us. Peter  believed all of us benefited from our time beneath the dome.  We reminesced some and one of his messages to me he said "here is another one for you: FRAN'S HERE!" and then continued "wish I could still eat like that".  He was so looking forward to our 50 reunion. I pray he is in peace with God and send my condolences to his friends and family.

So sorry to hear about Pete.  My condolences to his family.  We were both Political Science majors and spent lots of class time together.  A great guy and sad to hear of his death,

From Tom Vossler,  Cadet #554.  It was with both sadness and regret that I learned of Peter's passing.  Like Bill Lewis, I was also Peter's roomate - the last three semesters if I remember correctly.  Peter was smart, not to say intelligent guy, reserved if not to say shy. I admit he had some influence on my staying the course and not immediately escaping to the war that I knew was awaiting us. I fondly remember a few weekend visits to his family home in D.C.. I remember his parents as wonderful people so that tells you something about his character.

       Peter was a good enough friend that Barbara and I included him in our wedding party.  After we graduated he went off to law school, then JAG school and fulfilled his military obligations in the JAG Corps. He subsequently served his civilian judical expertise in the Washington D.C area

      Barbara and I got together with Peter and his parents a couple of times early in our Army career but Army deployments eventually separated us apart from Christmas cards.  It was only last year when preparing for our mini-reunion here at the farm this year that Peter and I regained contact on a more frequent basis.  It was Peter's wish to be here while admitting mobility was a major problem,  While he was up-beat, perhaps I did not know, or wish to know, the extent of the problem.

     So, thinking of Peter:  sadness at his passing and regret that we did not get together sooner to relive in memory our time together as Cadets at The Pennsylavania Military College.

My condolences to Peter's family.  May he RIP.  I knew Peter from observation more than from direct engagement, being that we were both within the introvert profile.  Nevertheless, having Peter as a classmate was a privilage.  We need more of Peters to make this a better world.
