  • To The Delaney Family,

    I am sorry to hear about the passing of Peter. Paul Lodge was gracious to notified me.

    It was my honor to have Peter for my manager during our years with Netversant.

    I was the Western Region Operations Manager for Netversant and reported directly to Peter.

    I remember the many trips to the Boston office for meetings with Peter and his business coaching and guidance for our Business Unit.

    My thoughts and prayers are with the entire Delaney Family at this time.

    Peter was a special individual to me and I will always remember him not only as a manager but a wonderful friend.

  • I served under Mr. Delaney aboard the USS Bigelow from 1973-1975. I have wondered many times over the years how he fared in life, and was trying Facebook again today and saw the announcement of his passing. I am truly sorry to have finally found him too late to make contact with him, but I wanted to be sure his family knows that those of us us who served under him had the highest respect and affection for him. Even as a very young man he was extremely patient, very smart, and always tried his best to do the right thing. Those of us in the Operations Intelligence division tended to be prima donnas, and not everyone could deal with us effectively, but Mr. Delaney always got our best because we thought he had earned it. I am not at all surprised to see that he was a great success in life, both personally and professionally. So I hope the family will remember, as they reflect on how he affected their lives, that there are many of us out here from whom you will never hear who also benefited from our time with him. He was a good man and we are better for having known him, however briefly.
