On May 9, 1953 he married Jean Sworyk of Rapid City and after a short time living in Minnedosa, they purchased their farm in the Moline District, where they farmed until 1996.

Peter was a member of and served on the executive of several organizations including, the Rivers Ukrainian Society, The Orthodox Church Brandon and Oakburn, Brandon Ukrainian Choir, Rivers Ukrainian Choir, and the Rivers Lions Club. He enjoyed his many years playing Tsymbala in numerous bands throughout the years and took extreme pride in recording 3 albums with the Citulsky family. He enjoyed curling, skiing, fishing, camping, golfing, gardening, traveling, and tinkering around the farm. His special times were spent with his family and especially his grand children his great grandchildren.

Predeceased by his parents, his son-in-law Kelly Creaser; his brothers William (Anne), Ernie; sisters, Jean (Steve) Manuluk and Olga in infancy; he is survived by loving wife of 67 years, Jean; his children, Gwen Creaser of Brandon, David (Debbie) Citulsky of Portage; his grandchildren, Lana (Phil) Wall, Becki (Tyler) Jaworski, Angelynn Nicholls, Robert (Felicia) Creaser, David JR (Stephanie) Citulsky; great-grandchildren, Dustyn, Kadence, Tyler Wall, Cody and Brayden Jaworski, Matthew and Nathan Nicholls, Alex, Cory, Jared and Jacob Creaser, Lucas, Danica and Emma Citulsky.
