  • My father, Peter Schjeldahl, passed away today at 3pm in the Catskills of lung cancer. He was not in pain and he was not alone. My mother Brooke, his sister Ann, and I were with him. He will be buried privately. In March there will be a service honoring his life and work. We’re grateful for all the messages and will be in touch when we can.
