Shidue (Grandpa) was deeply LOVED by his grandchildren. He leaves behind 12 grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren.
Peter was also loved by his many cousins, nieces, nephews and friends.
Peter's life will be remembered in his service to our country as a member of the 133rd Field Maintenance Squad. He was so proud to protect and serve this great Nation. Peter's life work was as a master tool and dye Machinist for over 60 years, working just until two months ago. He had a genius mind, having invented many practical things, and being creative in his work; especially with the creation of his hearts. He enjoyed gifting his hearts to anyone he encountered. He loved many things including his work and supporting his family. He will be remembered for his dedication, always putting God & Family above all else. His heart was full when we were together, wishing we all lived in one giant compound with a wing for each family. He will be greatly missed.
