Growing up, Peter loved the outdoors, which was a peaceful place for him. Hunting trips with his Dad, family camping and boating, and just being in nature were some of his most treasured times.
A devoted father, Peter was his boys soccer coach, baseball coach, Band Dad for Davidson Academy Bears and hockey Dad with Nashville Flyers. He loved spending time with his boys Mayson and Clayton on their boat, at the lake camping and what ever interests they decided to grow into. Family was important to Peter, even being an Uncle he took seriously and invested time. Being the youngest of 3 children himself, Peter worked to make sure the entire family was connected, usually centered around his parents as the gathering place.
Peter was first married to Lisa Mays and their love created two boys they raised together for 25 years. Later, Peter married Beverly Johnson Stickel. Their life together has been based in Goodlettsville and cut short by his tragic death only 3 years later.
