Peter was a caregiver at heart. He devoted his life to easing the suffering of others as a nurse anesthetist and, upon retirement, a healthcare instructor.

Peter's focus as a professional nurse anesthetist was in support of heart surgeries. Peter was devoted to helping others with heart disease. Unfortunately he suffered from heart disease himself with lifelong struggles through hyperlipidemia and a faulty aortic valve that was eventually replaced by with a bovine prosthetic.

As a young man, Peter reached out to heart specialists to inquire about the abnormal amount of cardiac disease within his family. Fatal heart attacks for his family members in their 30's and 40's were the norm.

As a result, Peter was a pioneer in the testing, detection, and treatment of hyperlipidemia.

Peter eventually succumbed to left ventricle heart failure due to complications from pneumonia. However, his constant attention to diet, exercise, and through the diligent pursuit cholesterol lowering medications, he enjoyed life to the fullest until he passed away at 75 years old.

Peter Quail was in this world but not of this world. He was rich in spiritual and intellectual attributes and kind and gentle with his teachings no matter the audience or subject.
He had an excitement and love for people and life and deep human understanding.
I worked with Peter in Naples Fla at a close knit surgery center. He was an inspiration in his field of anesthesia and life.
I recently caught up with him in July at the hospital where he was caring for, supporting and spending time with his friend in ICU. We planned to get together. It was pure joy seeing him and catching up briefly on eachother's lives. But, we never did-even though he has been on my heart and mind especially as I tried to reach him this past month only to find out today he passed.
I keep learning that when you get the internal nudge to do something out of nowhere-Do It! Act!
It's life calling you.
Peter, my friend- you will be missed dearly, oh but the heavens are dancing and singing and laughing. You were always "out of this world" but your Big Heart remains here in all of us.
