After serving his country, Peter went on to work for BART. Beginning as a mechanic, Peter worked his way up and became an Employee Development Specialist, retiring after 35 years of employment.
After retiring, Peter always kept busy. Whether it was a weekly-upheld lunch date with good friends or manning an event for the Salesian High School Booster Club, you could count on Peter always being there. Especially when it came to his grandchildren and their interests.
Peter is survived by his three children, Roy, Kim and Lindy; brother, Robert; and grandchildren Linnea, Randy, Lula, Xainte and Twila.
Peter’s generosity, and loyalty to his friends and family, uplifting others, helping anyone willing to help themselves, will be greatly missed. A Memorial Service honoring Peter’s life will be held May 1st, at 11:00am at Salesian High School, 2851 Salesian Ave., Richmond, CA 94804
