Peter Ostroushko passed away this afternoon from heart failure.
He had been in poor health due to a stroke a couple of years back.
Those of us who knew him are greatly saddened.
He was a nice fellow, an interesting character, and a formidable musician.

I first discovered Peter Ostroushko's mandolin wizardry on a couple of early Robin & Linda Williams LPs and quickly became a fan. I later caught up with him through his playing in Guy's All-Star Shoe Band on PHC.
He will be missed.
