In addition to his parents, Pete was preceded in death by four sisters, his devoted wife Sue Clodfelter Kiger who died in 2001, and his beloved daughter Sandra Kiger Johnson who died in March of 2007.

He is survived by his devoted son-in-law Roger "Jake" Johnson, granddaughter Suzanne Johnson-Simpson and husband Jeremy and great granddaughters Sanna Alexandra Simpson and Nicola Kiger Simpson all of Wallburg and also nieces and nephews.
