Resident Spotlight Peter M.

We want to take a moment to recognize Peter M. as a part of our Aravilla Family. Peter was born in Summit, New Jersey in 1944. He graduated from Bayley-Ellard Highschool in 1963. After graduating high school Pete went straight to college where he studied for accounting. He graduated from Seton Hall University earning his Bachler’s Degree in Accounting. Shortly after, Peter began to work as an accountant for the international paper company. There he met his wife, Heidi, and together they had 3 beautiful children. Pete and Heidi were married in 1964 and have 3 boys together. His boys then had children of their own making him a very proud grandfather of 4. Peter retired after working for 31 years at a different company called Pfizer Pharmaceutical where he was a manager to manufacturing accounting. Peter’s favorite hobbies include fishing and traveling! After retiring in 2000, Pete would enjoy fishing every day. Him and his wife loved going on cruises. They also traveled all around the country together and even got to explore Canada and Mexico! Peter and his Wife moved to Florida in 2015 to be closer to his family. We are so very blessed to have Peter as a part of our Aravilla Family!
