It is with the deepest sadness that we share with you the passing of Peter Smergut, former Executive Director here at Life’s WORC. For those of you who knew Peter, he was a friend to everyone. His warm smile, his helping hand and his infinite wisdom left a positive impact on all of us and on the people we support. At his core, he was a great advocate for all people, those with disabilities from his early career as a special education school teacher, and to all of us as a mentor and leader. We can all agree, that after every conversation with Peter, you walked away smiling. That was a gift to all of us that we will hold onto dearly and forever.
These are difficult times for all of us. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family. Please be safe and take a moment to reflect on those most dear to you.
