I've not seen you in over a decade, and sadly will never again during this lifetime my old neighbor friend. You were so kind to everyone and this is way too soon. I know you are embracing the other side. You leaving has really been a reminder for just how much I should be embracing this life.

Best officemate a guy could ask for. There was not a day we did not laugh, hard, for the better part of two years we sat next to each other among the piles of tapes and paperwork. He was wicked smart, opinionated - in an engaging but pleasant way, and a genuinely caring and empathetic person. Though I have not been in touch with him for almost 20 years, a week rarely goes by that I do not reference or think about some crazy/stupid thing we did at one point or another. My deepest condolences to his family and loved ones. His memory is a blessing.

My heart goes out to Stephen, Susan, Krista and family. Peter was taken too soon! I cannot imagine how distraught Peters family must now endure. Please forgive me for not being there this evening. This is just too much to bare! I made a donation to the Bichon Frise Rescue of NNJ, however, when I made the online donation, it never asked me to enter Peters name. Please know that I want him honored.

I am so sorry to learn of Peter's passing. I worked with Peter at Sound Point and he was incredibly kind, upbeat, and always genuinely happy to help with whatever issues arose. During the darkest days of the pandemic, Peter performed for our entire firm on Zoom and helped lift our spirits; we were so fortunate for him to share his love of music and remarkable talents with us. I extend my deepest condolences to his family and friends - Peter really was such a lovely human and will be greatly missed.

I was one of Peters many colleagues who adored him. He had an infectious personality and was always going above and beyond to help others. No task was too big or too small for you and you did everything with a smile. Thank you for all the joy youve brought to all of us, both through your music and personality. I hope you continue to rock on and Rest In Peace.

I'm so saddened by this young loss. Peter was an incredible person, who loved life and making people smile. I will cherish my memories from BHS of him. Sending prayers and strength to his family and friends.
