Peter put life in perspective. He was the weathervane we all looked to for guidance and reassurance. The constant in the storm. He instinctively knew when to send a text to check in, when you needed a hug, when to say just the right thing and what words to use (even the good cuss words). His edit bay was a refuge for anyone seeking counsel, a moment of quiet or a much-needed escape. He had a heart of gold and was a devoted, generous person who would drop anything for a friend in need. His hugs could fix almost any worry and his belly laugh was food for the soul.
Peter was a hell of an editor and would proudly call anyone in to his bay to show them some funny scene he had just cut, laughing the entire time he played the clip. He loved to quote the notes he received – “this party is a dud” – being a recent favorite. And while we would ride him for his music cue choices or his less-than-swift pace at times, there was nothing like watching a scene that he cut and made his own, putting his sense of humor into it. He loved to make people laugh and he did it well. Peter cared – he was proud and humble. He worked his ass off no matter what scene he was cutting or what show he was working on. He delivered and he left his mark.
But of all the things Peter loved: golf, La Lucha, naps ... nothing compared to his love for his daughters, Michelle and Julia, and his incredible wife, Jeanne. While we are all devastated by the loss of this larger-than-life man with the twinkle in his eye, we want to celebrate his impact on each of us by doing what he would want us to do now: take care of his family.
