He served in the US Army during the Korean Conflict. He was stationed in Munich, Germany, where he fell head over heels for one lucky fräulein, Margarita Anna Langbrandner. He returned after his discharge and they were married on December 15, 1954 in Munich, Germany. He was a lifelong farmer and mechanic, who also worked at Thiokol for 20 years and retired as an Engineer. He enjoyed telling a good joke, helping others, visiting with friends, working in the garden and around his farm. His greatest joy was spending time with his wife and family.

Cheri and family-there are never words to comfort those going through this. Please know my love and prayers are with you and yours. Although I only spoke to your grandpa a few times, I know he loved his family. He spoke with so much pride about you. Thank you for sharing your family with me. It means the world to me. Love ya!
Aunt Marg, Natalie & Mark, I just want you to know how sorry I am at the passing of Uncle Pete. He was always so nice to me from my very first day on the farm up till the last time I seen him. He was a kind and loving man. May God be will all you at this hard time.
I am sorry to hear about your loss. I worked with Pete for years at Thiokol/ATK. I am now working for the Box Elder County Road Department part time for the summer and we are in Park Valley this week so i can not make it to town for the services tonight. I would like to express my sympathy to the family. It was a privilege, getting to know Pete and working with him.
