Said Bob Moog ’78, “Peter was a great classmate to all of us in the classes of ’78/’79 and was a great friend to many of us. Peter lived in Boulder with his wife Dottie Hiersteiner ’78 and their two daughters. The story is a very CC story as Pete and Dottie met freshman year in Slocum. Thirty years earlier Pete’s parents also met and fell in love while at CC.” In honor of Dottie and in memory of Peter, the Peter A.
