He was born in Los Angeles, CA to Lawrence and Jane Rynders.

They proceeded to start a family and settled in Manhattan Beach, CA.   Later, in the 70’s he moved to San Diego where he pursued a career in Petrol Industrial Cleaning; from there he began his own successful industrial cleaning business.

Peter learned to be a “jack of all trades,” including racing sports cars, working on the house & yard, mentoring college students, and extending to everything he put his mind and hands to. His charismatic personally afforded him many relationships from Southern California to Blaine, WA over the years.   He was very fortunate, and enjoyed helping others in one way or another. Peter is survived by his 3 children: Lori Schmucker (Mark), Seal Beach, CA, Kristin Dunn (David), The Woodlands, TX and Larry Rynders, Taft, CA.
