Pedro Palacios Camacho Baez, known as "Peter" to his friends and family, passed away suddenly and without warning on Monday, September 3, 2007. Peter was born on November 25, 1963 in Paris, France. For the first seven years of his life, Peter was raised in an orphanage in Cadiz, Spain. He was adopted by Samuel and Marianne Baez and raised on the east coast. He joined the United States Air Force and ultimately went to live in San Francisco, Gilroy, Campbell and San Jose, California, so that he could further his career in the banking industry, and be around people he loved and admired. He was particularly close to his cousin, folk singer and social activist, Joan Baez, of Woodside, California. Peter set high goals for himself, and attended San Jose City College where he was an exceptional student. He generously volunteered his time to work with non-profit organizations including ARIS, and other programs serving people with HIV/AIDS. He started one of the first Medical Marijuana Programs in the Country, the Santa Clara County Medical Cannabis Center, and was always willing to lend a hand to help those less fortunate than he. He received many awards for his community service. Peter is survived by his parents, his brothers; Robert, John and Michael, his family and his partners in life; Jesse Garcia and Roy Maharshi. Peter was a shining light in a grey world, and will be greatly missed by his many friends and family. A private memorial service will be held in Peter's honor on September 22, 2007. May the energy that Peter brought into our lives be a constant source in yours. We love you Peter. Rest in Peace.
