Peter was a US Army veteran and crane operator for Colorado Fuel & Iron Corporation. One of his hobbies was baking, entering 4 cakes in the 1964 State Fair in Chicago, taking 3 Blue ribbons for his Deluxe Chocolate, German Chocolate, and White Silver King cakes and one Red ribbon for his yellow butternut cake.
