Peter grew up in Indianola, Iowa, and attended Iowa State University where he received a degree in Electrical Engineering. Peter was affiliated with Sigma Alpha Epsilon national fraternity and epitomized what it meant to be a "True Gentleman". He had an insatiable need to solve problems and was known as the "Fix-it Guy" to his many friends because of his ability to fix anything motorized, electrical, computerized, or anything having to do with building construction and repair. Peter developed deep connections with others, always willing to help, was a great listener, and able to lift others in time of need.
