He served in the U.S. Army Air Corps and the U.S. Air Force in WWII. He served as Special Agent of the Federal Bureau of Investigation in Chicago, IL, Richmond, VA, and Atlanta, GA, and was proud to receive the 275th FBI "Possible Medal" for proficiency in the Bureau's history. He worked as a social service caseworker while working toward his degree in Michigan. He retired after 27 years as Professor of Psychology at Mt. Wachusett Community College, Gardner, MA in 1992. He was competitive in age-group running until debilitated by arthritis and was most proud of finishing the Mount Washington Road Race at age 63 with a time of 2:11.53. He loved wilderness, writing essays and poetry about its beauty and the concern to preserve nature for future generations. He was president of the Monadnock Writer's Group as well as Secretary for several years. He served as an Audubon Society volunteer monitoring peregrine falcons and bald eagles along the Connecticut River. Pete was a charter member of the Richmond Conservation Commission, served as Secretary from 1968 until 2000.
