I just got back home and heard the news. Peter was a great guy who signed about a hundred copies of Jaws books and posters for me over the years for various charity auctions. In 2001, he surprised me with a personally inscribed first edition of Jaws, which I will always cherish. My heartfelt prayers go out to Wendy, Tracy, Clay and Chris.

I remember going to Daytona Beach in 1975. I pretty much stayed in the pool the entire time thanks to that guy!
May he rest in peace anyway.
