    Our condolences to Dori, Terry and Chris. Peter was a good friend and we have had many good times in the past. His personality was larger than life and his loss will be felt by many. I am sure that he is in heaven negotiating deals and meeting old friends and waiting for us. Again, so sorry to hear of his passing.

    Our condolences to Peter’s family. We always remember Peter as the real estate agent who sold us our first home in 1968 in Fairport. He went out of his way to pick the best lot for us. We also remember fondly our visits in Greece and Hilton Head.
