Since September 11th, my mom, my brother and I have sifted through dozens of old photo albums and recalled countless memories of good times shared.

Having grown up in a large family with eight siblings, my father, Peter, was a true family man. In his 54 years, he lived life to the fullest. My mom and dad married in 1969 and built a wonderful life together, raising two children and traveling to various destinations. They were due to depart on a second excursion to Italy on September 22nd. According to dad, only “eight more wake-ups”.

As jokers and joke tellers go, my dad was one of the best. He was quite an adventure seeker as well. He tried just about everything and he loved to ride his Harley wherever the road would take him. My dad always saw to it that everyone in his life was happy and he was most generous in lending his helping hand.

My wedding video reminds me that Peter West was quite a gentleman and a man who wasn’t afraid to show his emotions. And, he loved to dance with my mom.

My dad took great pride in his work. Municipal bonds were his passion and he’d made quite a name for himself. Everyone in the business seems to have a story about Peter West…Go figure!

Dad – the memories of our laughter and our tears will remain in my heart forever. I miss you. I love you. “Your Daughter”
