Peter died Nov. 19, 2017, of mesothelioma at home in Vero Beach, Fla. 

He came to us from St. Paul’s, majored in English, and took his meals at Colonial Club. He earned an MBA at the University of Chicago Business School and was a naval communications officer on the USS Kitty Hawkand the USS Beharduring Vietnam. 

Later, he worked for W.R. Grace, McGraw-Hill, and Merrill Lynch Realty while living in Manhattan and then Tuxedo Park, N.Y. He then acquired a steel-fabricating company in Gardner, Mass., while living in Weston, Mass., and became president.

Having spent family summers during his childhood on Fisher’s Island, N.Y., in Long Island Sound, he continued the tradition with his own family. He played his final round of golf in late July, several months before his death, having also been an avid curler throughout his adulthood. 

Peter is survived by his wife, Lyn; daughters Marjorie Wages and Barbara Romero; four grandchildren; and sister Jane Andrews. 

Peter was known as a gracious and kind man, devoted to family, and “a gentleman in every way.” He will be missed by all who knew him, and the class sends its sincere condolences to his family and friends.
