Peter B. Spivy

West Point, 1970

Be Thou At Peace

Posted by Jerry Kerr, D-4 on March 10, 2012:

I haven't had contact with Pete for over 41 years when we were at Artillery basic at Ft. Sill. How sad it is to now harken my memories of Pete under these circumstances. I remember Pete as a fiesty guy who would not stray from an argument which he usually won with a display of good character. Pete was the kind of guy that it was always fun to be around-because you knew something would be coming up. A specific memory I have of Pete was at Ft. Sill- after a hard day of gunnery class we would head to the club for Happy Hour. During one of those occasions Pete taught me how to play liars dice. I don't remember if the lesson stood me well or not, but I remember the lesson. Pete is in the Hands of the Lord after a job well done here.
