Peter enjoyed a challenge and always had an eye for adventure. This followed him in both his business and hobbies. He was quick to gather friends, family and colleagues to participate in all of his endeavors whether it be on land, water or in the sky. He has left so many of us with memories and wonderful stories of boating on the bay, waterskiing with the kids, shark fishing, hydroplane racing, legend car racing, hunting weekends and infinite hours of hockey practice, games and tournaments which he loved sharing with Mike.
