In the summer months he played golf and became an avid and excellent golfer. Peter was loved by his many devoted family and friends and known for his wry wit and funny sense of humor. After high school Peter worked in the family owned business, The Toggery, a St. Cloud men’s retail clothier. When the family business was sold he continued work in retail men’s clothing. Peter was highly valued by his many customers for his eye for style and his ability to fit clothing perfectly. Peter also served in the Army National Guard.
