Niels Peter Borg
Niels Peter Borg, born November 11, 1944 and always known as "Pete", passed away on August 18, 2010 from a head injury sustained in a fall in his driveway.
Pete was a musician and played bass with The Dynamics for several years during their international recognition.
He built a 40' sailboat - the "Florence M" - and sailed her to Honolulu where he lived and worked with his boat.
Pete was an accomplished painter. He was a member of the senior citizens group in Everett, WA for whom he painted and to whom he gave a huge Northwest painting, enjoyed by many, a gift to his "clubhouse".
He was always accompanied by "Muffin", his little Shih Tzu who now lives with a friend of Pete's since the second grade. Peter had an inborn quality of making other people feel good. He will be missed by many.

Terry Afdem and I became friends when he was my keyboard teacher in 1964. We hit it off, and in 1965, he started calling me to sit in for him when he couldn't make a gig… This was during the “heyday” of “the Dynamics with Jimmy Hanna…” What a group!!! Great music… While my tenure with the group was sporadic and short-lived, it did leave an indelible mark on me, my music, my career, and who I am as a person… The confidence this experience instilled in me has served me well throughout my life/career… I've often wondered if Terry ever knew how important his “relationship” with me was… I know the other bands I played in during this time period (i.e., the Liberty Party, Enchanters, Merrilee Rush, etc.) benefited from my relationship with Terry and my experience playing with the Dynamics… I still think R&B is the best….
