Peter Lake Bellinger was a composer and painter. He attended San Francisco State University and a cooking school in Paris. Bellinger worked at the Mark Twain Hotel in downtown San Francisco for twelve years, starting as a bellhop and advancing to general manager. After leaving the hotel, he went back to college to study composition. Upon receiving his HIV diagnosis, he retired and began to pursue composition, and continued to write music for over ten years. He and his partner, Joe Grubb, were together for nearly twenty-three years. Peter Bellinger, born in Honolulu, died of liver cancer in San Francisco at the age of 54 on April 18, 2001. “My aim is to entertain people, not to educate them. Above all, I believe music should be reasonably accessible." --Peter Bellinger
