That is a very sad piece of news. After working with him at ammo prep can only say that he was one of natures gentlemen. One of the best "bosses" a man could have and a pleasure to work with.
This is a bit late but I thought that while I was at it, I'd like to add a tribute to Peter.
It was Peter who arranged a blind date for me with Margaret back in 1963. There were two Margarets on that date & he was the one who named them Peg and Meg. I never did get round to thanking (or sometimes cursing) him but, when one thinks that that was 43 years ago and we're still married, I guess it should be thanks Pete.
