Peter attended the former “Oak Grove Elementary School” of Walterboro, South Carolina and the Colleton Training School. He was a professional laborer of many sorts, and was skilled in a variety of jobs, but was most famously known for his painting. Peter painted many houses and buildings around Walterboro. He was a quiet person, who kept to himself. As a young child, Peter attended the old “Piney Grove Baptist Church” of Walterboro, South Carolina.
Of the twelve siblings of this union, ten preceded him in death.
He leaves to cherish his memories one brother, Mr. Johnnie Thompson (Thelma) of the home, and a host of nieces, nephews, grandnieces and grandnephews, cousins and friends.
