“Peter was a gifted artist. He worked primarily as a sculptor with precision, detail and humor as his trademarks. Peter worked as a museum preparator for the Tweed. His artistic talents translated to framing and arranging exhibits that enhanced and individualized each artwork.
He lived his life fishing the lakes of northern Minnesota. To Peter, any day on the water was a good day. ‘Boat for Sale.’” — from Peter’s obituary in the Brainerd Dispatch
