    Notes 
    • According to Peter's children and grandchildren, as a child, Peter was left with his Montoya grandparents when his mother died and his father Joe left for Utah looking for work. He was later raised by Manuelita's brother Antonio and his wife Maggie. When he reached adulthood he left for Utah to reunite with his father and to work the railroad. His son Sam states that he didn't stay long in Utah because he did not like it. At some point he returned to New Mexico where his son Norman was born (however, Norman's obituary indicates that he was born in Oakland, California). Peter then moved on to California to work as a mechanic at an Air Force Base - until his back injury.
