Obituary for Peter Iron Rope

Peter  Iron Rope
Peter Samuel Iron Rope “Sihala” was born on April 15, 1969 in Alliance, NE to Abel Thomas Iron Rope, Sr. and Vera High Hawk. Peter made his journey to the Spirit World on October 9, 2018 at his home in Baton Rouge, LA.

Peter is a father to two sons, Sage and Gabriel and one daughter, Mackenzie. Shortly after obtaining his GED, Peter enlisted in the United States Army Reserves and was stationed in Germany and was honorably discharged on August 10, 1995 in Fort Benning, GA.

Peter was known by many for his loving and generous nature. He is a sundancer, a pipe keeper, and a Native American Church Member. Throughout his life, he touched many peoples’ lives; either through work, school, church, and our traditional ceremonial ways. Peter was known for his firmness as well as his sense of humor. We will always remember his smile, his hugs, and most of all the love he has for each and every one of us.
