Peter Sheehan was an inspiration to everyone around him. 

His enthusiasm for life and the beauty he saw everywhere brightened everything and everyone around him. He was an example of an extraordinary human. A kind and loving man with a wonderful sense of humor, and endless colorful creativity. 

He took up painting and drawing to try to capture the colors of the green fields, plowed earth and mystery of the woods. Peter remained engaged in that pursuit of beauty for the remainder of his life.
