Peter was born on June 20, 1968 in Chicago, IL the son of Bernard R. and the late Charlene (nee: Becker) Ogurek, Sr. and passed away peacefully on Thursday, August 22nd at the Alexian Brothers Hospice Residence in Elk Grove Village.

Peter was a loving son, brother, uncle and friend to all. He lived his life with kindness, humor, and always a helping hand for everyone. He was a well respected and admired real estate broker for over 15 years in the Chicagoland area.
His adventurous spirit led him on many escapades with his friends and family to Greece, scuba diving in Cozumel and all over the United States. He never missed a Cubs game if he could help it. His infectious laughter and vibrant soul would leave no strangers in his path.
You never had a bad time when Peter was around. From his silly antics and jokes, his carefree spirit would make you look on the bright side in any dark situation. He will be greatly missed by everyone whose life he touched.
