  1. To my Uncle Peter, also a mentor to me when I got in the electronics business my father owned, you taught me all I know about audio and your passion for it. Working along side you was a great time in my life, miss you , your now in peace and out of pain

  2. We lost a great friend and teacher in Peter. He truly was a master builder of all things in electronics and my radio shack is filled with things he constructed over the years. His memory will live on every day.

    Rest in Peace
