A lifelong resident of Manhattan, Peter was employed for 37 years by C e n t r a l – N a t i o n a l Gottesman, the world’s largest distributor of pulp, paper, paperboard and newsprint, now located in Purchase, NY, most recently as senior vice president, general counsel and secretary.

He prepared for Yale at Phillips Exeter Academy, majored in history at Yale and earned a J.D. degree from Columbia in 1968.

Pete passed away on July 23, 2013, survived by his wife, Mary O’Connor, daughter, Melissa Covington, and son, Andrew Siegfried.

His family shared this memory of him: “His immense talent for worrying was exceeded only by his generosity and devotion to his family and friends. He will be remembered by all for his thin attempts at projecting a gruff exterior which could barely contain one of the sweetest men on earth.”
