Peter died Nov. 7, 2017, at home in Annandale, Va., following a long battle with cancer.

Born and raised in Philadelphia, Peter graduated from The Haverford School. At Princeton he majored in civil engineering. He roomed with John Wright, who recalled that “Peter wore his passions on his sleeve: Philadelphia sports — especially his beloved Flyers — ’50s oldies, and his friends at Tiger Inn.”

After graduation Peter earned a law degree from Delaware Law School and an LLM in taxation from Georgetown University Law Center. His career at The Kiplinger Washington Editors spanned 34 years, with 16 years as editor of The Kiplinger Tax Letter.

Peter married Georgiann Oct. 4, 1980. He noted that this wonderful day in his life was also the day the Phillies clinched the pennant. He and Georgiann settled in Virginia. He was an avid runner and race walker, winning three Senior Olympics walking medals.

The class extends sympathy to his wife, Georgiann, and daughter Beth.
