  1. I just found out about Pete and I am deeply saddened. If I had known earlier, I would have attended the memorial. I worked with Pete at ACS for about 6 or so years. He was a wonderful guy. My cube was right by his office so we talked quite a bit. I always enjoyed our conversations. He will be missed.

  2. Rest in Peace my friend!! I’ll always remember hanging out at Lake Elsinore.Pete and I used to work together.His sense of humor kept me going.

  3. My condolences go to Katherine, Eva, Helga and the rest of Peter’s family. I will always remember him as a lively, energetic person. He always had something going, something in the works, and something else on the back burner. He will be truly missed. Cindy Curti and family

  4. In memory of my cousin, Peter, who was more like a brother to me, God rest your soul. You will surely be missed and alway in my thoughts and prayers.

  5. My condolences to everyone in Peter’s family. He will be missed by all of his friends in speed skating. Best wishes and fond memories from everyone in Southern California Speed Skating. Yours,
