Please post your thoughts below. The previous Memorial Book was receiving too much spam, so I had to close it and start this page instead. You may read the comments in the previous Memorial Book, however, by clicking here.

There may be a delay between when you leave your thoughts below and when your post appears, but rest assured, the post will eventually be published. Please keep in mind that many questions still remain about Peter’s state of mind in those final days of his life. One recent question is how much of a role the anti-seizure drug, Dilantin, played on his thoughts. Perhaps Pete was a victim of a pharmaceutical drug and not so much of self-inflicted depression. Also note that Geoffrey Deuel sometimes visits this page. Thank you.

    I recently lost my husband of 55+ years to cancer and we enjoyed watching reruns of Alias Smith and Jones together. Was sad to learn Pete Duel was no longer with us. May he rest in peace – his acting is some of the best I’ve seen for those early days. Thank you Pete and Ben for putting a smile on my face with some of your humor from the series. Love you guys!

    To the family of Dr. Deuel: I worked at Kodak’s Elmgrove Plant in Rochester, NY. Your dad was my doctor. I had severe asthma and he took such good care of me. The asthma was so severe, I had to carry my own injections. I remember when Peter passed away and my heart broke for him and his family. I often thought of both of them throughout the years. I went on the internet and found this wonderful writeup on Dr. Deuel. You were one of the best Dr. Deuel!.

    Pete,
    Didn’t know you but I knew you. I suffered from some of the same demons as you at about some of the same time. I left the military after ‘Nam in ’69 and dove right in. I’ve been reintroduced to Smith and Jones on “Saddle up Weekends” and man I miss you, like Hendrix and Janis. But dude, You live on.
    Adios Bro,
    Eddie
