I knew Peter from a long way back - Pop Warner football. I assigned the zebras to the league and refereed many games in Everett. Peter was a great guy, always reliable & honest. He received an award from my officials' association. My wife & I often talked with Peter at BC basketball games - always a treat to say hello and share some memories. He should be in heaven, hopefully praying for us.
