Born on June 19, 1944 in New Bern, North Carolina, son of the late Carl and Minnie (Collins) Brown. When Peter was young his family moved from North Carolina to Greenburgh, NY, and later moved to Shrub Oak, NY. He graduated from Lakeland High School in 1962.

Peter married the love of his life Bruna Dunn on May 3, 1969. He worked for Sears Roebuck for over 20 years before he became his own boss and started his business, Unique Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning. Peter owned his business for over 25 years before officially retiring.

From a young age, Peter was a student to the Bible, and he devoted 60 years of life teaching the Bible to others. His faith kept him strong through the good and bad times and these values were the foundation for his family life. He had a pleasant sense of humor and enjoyed telling stories and spending time with family and friends. Many found him very approachable and easy to talk to because of his gentle demeanor. He always enjoyed starting his day with a good cup of coffee. Among his interests, he enjoyed golfing, music, (especially jazz and Motown), dancing, watching sports and drawing.
