He liked listening to 50’s rock, big bands, and playing the saxophone. Peter was in the marching band all through high school and college. In his college days he had a rock band, The 6 Pak, and had many great stories about performing with his bandmates. Peter was a proud co-creator of the Canton Football Association (CFA), and a longtime coach - this led to lots of planning meetings, dinners, practices, games, championships, and lifelong friendships.
