Condolence & Memory Journal

I just learned about Peter's death, and am so very sad. I worked with him in the early - mid 1980s at Technology Concepts Inc. a very small start-up in Sudbury, MA. He was very friendly, funny and talented. We shared many laughs and jokes. I helped his family move out of their Marlborough residence, and he later helped me move from my Marlborough apartment to a house in Hudson.

I am so sorry to hear of Peter’s passing. I worked with Peter fresh out of college in 1984 at a small startup called Technology Concepts Inc. Peter was super bright, an exceptional software engineer, always had a smile on his face and was very generous with his time helping others. My deepest condolences to his family and friends.

I have fond memories of working with Peter and will miss him. He was passionate, generous and had a good sense of humor. I was fortunate to meet his friends and colleagues. I'm very sad to hear he's no longer with us, but, I know that the world is a bit better because of him. My heartfelt condolences to Jane and the rest of his family.

I was blessed to serve on the vestry of St. Anne's in-the-Fields with Peter. He was an extremely generous and kind soul. When my wife had an extended illness, Peter was always the first to ask how she was doing. My prayers to Peter's family and all those that were fortunate to call him friend.

I had the pleasure of working with Peter at USR. He was a superb engineer and very passionate about the Pilgrim project. He was smart, caring and had a great sense of humor. He loved mentoring the more junior members of the team and could always be depended on to follow through on his commitment. Although I had not seen Peter for many years since I moved to the west coast, knowing he is no longer with us brings me great sadness. My heart felt condolences to his family.

I had the good fortune to work with Peter during the last 5 years. He was an excellent engineer who cared deeply about the quality of his work. He was also an excellent writer and had a distinctive style that will live on in his documentation. Peter was fun, kind and caring. He had deep convictions about the world and enjoyed discussing them. His work setting up the micro lending group was emblematic of his concern for the world. My best to Josh and the rest of the family. I know he will be deeply missed.

Peter was a good friend and a wonderful human being. I had always enjoyed our conversations when I visited the Boston Office. Every time I think about him, I see his bright eyes ready the challenge everyone to think outside the box, passionate conversation on things that were close to his heart, and a deep conviction in whatever he was involved in. He will be greatly missed by all of us.

Sending our prayers and thoughts to the family to find strength through the wonderful memories he shared with all of us.

Peter was a great coworker not only for his professional contributions but also because he was a good person. I really enjoyed our conversations about politics, life, the universe, and everything. My heart goes out to his family and anyone else who's feeling the hole in our hearts.

He is one of the nicest people I worked with. He not only cared about coworkers but also people in need everywhere in the world.

My condolences to Josh and the whole family.

What I remember most about Peter was his kind heart and his unbelievable generosity. He started the kiva fund at Lookout where employees voluntarily give their money to help others. Peter made it into a fun monthly get together. He always knew who he was. Being around him reminded you what was important in life which was helping each other and being there for people.

I remember him as a gentle soul with a great sense of humor and a big heart. The world got a little dimmer without him.

I always appreciated the weekly photos Peter sent and would periodically communicate with him when I found one particularly breathtaking or unusual. Peter leaves a big void. I hope his children, grandchildren, and siblings, and extended family take comfort in all the wonderful memories he created. My sincerest condolences.

His cousin,
