Peter G. Wood


Peter G. Wood of Pipersville, Pa., died on Sept. 15, 2023. He will be deeply missed by his wife of 45 years, Viktoria Kortschmaryk Wood.

Peter practiced law as a corporate tax attorney for 35 years, starting with the then Coopers and Lybrand accounting firm in Pittsburgh, Pa., and retiring in 2015 from Blue Cross of NE PA in Wilkes Barre, Pa.
