Peter was an avid sports fan. He loved to play ball as a young boy and it carried into his adult hood. He played ball until his knee started to give him problems. Peter still found enjoyment from watching even though he couldn't play. He also liked to watch football and basketball. He would know all the stats for both games. Peter took pride in singing with the Ojibwe Hymn Singers and attending wakes with his cousin Archie. You would always find Peter at pow-wows, sitting in the stands or visiting with relatives and friends. He enjoyed life. Peter always teased and joked with his family and friends. His unique, crazy laugh, backed by a wonderful smile will always be remembered. Most of all, Peter loved his family and close friends. He worried about everyone, never himself.
