Peter B. Spivy

West Point, 1970

Be Thou At Peace

Posted by Jim Sullivan on February 29, 2012:

Pete was hearty and fierce, wildly funny and full of zest.

I will never forget watching him take a ferocious pounding in the ring, laughing between rounds, hopping back up and eventually winning the bout with a bloody nose.

That sort of says it all.

He was a little older than the class average, and a little more savvy, and a little harder to intimidate.

And he flew for his country and kept 'em straight and level until his last day.

Thanks, Pete. I love you. You're a good Joe. And may God hold you in his Big Hand.
