Peter graduated from the University of Notre Dame in 1962. Peter and Judy, the love of his life, both enjoyed the other loves – the Cubs and Notre Dame.

Survived by sisters-in-law Jean Connolly, Donna Connolly, Pat Sirchio, and LuAnn (Zenith) Akers. Loving uncle of many nieces and nephews. Peter was a friend to all he met and will be missed.
