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 think about him often. It’s too bad that he didn’t realize how much of an influence he was on so many people. Back then it was so uncommon for people to care about the things that Peter cared about. He really stood out!! And he was talented and easy on the eyes as well!! It was that combination–the caring about animals and politics and the environment–and the talented acting—-that was irresistible. RIP Peter!!

    I remember so clearly hearing of Pete’s passing on 31st December 1971. So long ago now but it stills upsets me thinking about this beautiful man who was taken away far too soon. It was the first time I had ever felt such a deep sense of utter despair and loss and for someone I had never even met. I was 14 years old.
