Condolence & Memory Journal


We were heart-broken to learn of Peter's passing, and we send our deepest sympathies and prayers to Helen, Connie, Dino and families, on the loss of your beloved husband and father. We knew Peter as a welcoming and kind neighbor, who was just as congenial when we saw him on occasional visits to Millers downtown. We hope that your memories of your best times together help to comfort and sustain you now, and in the days to come. With love from all of the Pilats: Greg, Roxanne Michael (Hayley), Christopher, Jennifer (Emmanuel).

We would like to send our sincere condolences to the Orfanos family. We will always remember Peter from our many years as patrons of Miller's Pub in Chicago. He always greeted us with a smile, a warm welcome, and, as we got to know him a little better, one of his famous jokes! We looked forward to seeing him each Wednesday night at Millers - he truly made our visits special occasions. Our thoughts and prayers are with Peter's family. We will always fondly remember him. Sincerely, Wendy and David Richards
