Peter Brian Lorence was born on January 9, 1972, in Kansas City, Missouri, to Marilyn Ratliff. He was a proud 1990 graduate of Kirksville High School.

Together they moved to Saginaw the following year to begin their next adventure. He was employed with Best Western Hotel in Birch Run for 10 years, which he loved, and he was actively involved in Birch Run Township government.

Peter had an excellent fashion sense and was always dressed well ready for the occasion. He enjoyed shopping for suits and shoes, and tanning. Peter always wanted to look his best. Above all, he loved and cherished his time at home with his partner Ted.
