Peter grew up and attended school in Perham. He was married to Yvonne Smith in 1967. During the time they were married, they moved to Alaska with their two children, Pammy and Jesse. Peter worked on many construction sites and enjoyed hunting and fishing in Alaska. In 1979, Peter was united in marriage to Sharon Andel and eventually moved back to Perham where he started the Peter Paul Excavation business.
Surviving Peter is his lovely wife, Sharon of 35 years; his brother, Arthur (Cindy) Ziolkowski; his daughter, Pammy of Waubay, SD; his son, Jesse (Debbie) of Fort Collins, CO; his step-children, Carla of Perham and Jody (Fay) of Mesa, AZ; his seven grandchildren, RaeAnn, Shawn, Merissa, Ryley, Justin, Taylor and Ashley; and his seven great-grandchildren.
Peter and Sharon spent the last seven winters in Florida where they enjoyed the company of friends and spent a lot of time on the water fishing. Peter really liked fishing. If he wasn't fishing, he was talking about fishing.
He will truly be missed by many. His laugh will echo in our hearts forever.
