Possessing a strong sense of duty, he also served in the Navy and Army Reserve, as well as Customs and Border Protection, where he worked as an officer until his retirement in 2008. Peter was a very giving person, and donated to several organizations, including ASPCA, St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital, and Disabled Veterans. An avid sports fan, he loved the Steelers, Pirates and Penguins and the West Virginia Mountaineers. He was also a Seahawks fan, as long as they weren’t playing the Steelers.
