Peter was born on June 29, 1937 to John Paul and Katherine (Kociemba) Jonas in St. Cloud. He married Ramona Streit on August 3, 1959 at Immaculate Conception in St. Anna. He worked as a machinist for DeZURIK for over 35 years. Peter was a member of St. Benedicts Catholic Church and proudly served our country in the United States Army. He enjoyed being outdoors, fishing and spending time on his hobby farm. Peter was a very outgoing, supportive and nonjudgmental person who was always willing to help. His quick wit will be missed by all who knew him.
