  Peter Aschenbrenner 1944 - 2022
From Peter's Facebook page posted by Mary Aschenbrenner on Dec. 4, 2022:

"This message comes from Mary. Peter's heart gave out early this morning and he passed away peacefully. He had not been feeling very well for quite some time and sadly was always too weak and too tired to work in his garden which he dearly loved. He was the love of my life for 51 years and I know that he will be missed by many of our friends and family near and far."
