Help Peter and Marge Ostroushko

It is with a very heavy heart that we share the news that Peter passed away on February 24, 2021.  Here is the message his daughter Anna posted that evening:
“It is with such profound sadness that I share with you that my father Peter passed away this afternoon due to severe heart failure. We have never known a better guy. Please listen to or play some music tonight in his honor. We thank you for respecting our privacy during this time, and are so grateful for your support.”
Peter was a kind and generous person, a gifted musician, and a hilarious storyteller.  He will be deeply missed.
These last three years have been challenging for Peter, Marge, and Anna. Your support has made a tremendous difference.  Thank you for your love and your gifts.  We will keep this GoFundMe page up for now, as Marge will continue to face significant expenses related to Peter’s final years.
