It is the anniversary of him entering immortality. He was a veteran of PainRounds/SDN. If you didn't know him or enjoy debating him, you really missed out. His exchanges with the cast regulars here still shape my point of view on many topics...today I will read some of his best contributions.

We spent one year in training together when he was displaced following hurricane Katrina. Despite his dogmatic and authoritarian style on SDN, he was a gentle, caring and compassionate doctor, a guy you'd love to grab a beer with. We lost a good one

I remember meeting him for the first time in the elevator at a conference. He was a true gentleman to my wife and me and I’ll never forget that about him.

I remember some of his last posts here were about testing out some different sports cars. Don’t know if he ever got to enjoy the ride he wanted but sure hope he did.

when i was applying for my first job, i PMed him and he called me and walked me though the language in my contract. he had no angle, he was just trying to help me out.

You know what’s classy? Taking a nice in memoriam thread and making it about you and your bad punctuation.

I actually drove with him to DC one weekend to buy a new car. I think he got an Acura at the time. This was back in his residency days though so I'm sure he was able to get something much nicer once he was out in practice, hopefully

I believe it was LAD widowmaker MI. Peter had a bad knee from playing football at Dartmouth. A portly fellow who could name the top 5 restaurants in any city. Before any travel I would call him for recommendations. And sometimes he would make sure to show up. Had a great meal with him and a few current posters forum members in NOLA a few years back. Not too much before he passed.

Great meal and a "few" cocktails as I remember
