Well-Known D.C. Homeless Man Peter Bis Reportedly Dead, Interviewed By TRNS In ’08

Peter Bis, a homeless man well-known to the Capitol Hill community, reportedly died Wednesday evening.

Bis was often found perched out in front of the Heritage Foundation, counting down the days until the weekend and advising passerby to not go skinny dipping.

In 2008, TRNS interns Brandon Plocinski and Elizabeth Sachs performed an interview with Bis. The D.C. icon gave an in-depth account of his life, including his colorful claims that he dated Princess Diana and had ties to the intelligence community.

    This man is someone whom I got to see on a daily basis on my way to and from work always kept a smile on his face and always had a hello and kind word. Despite his circumstances or the cards life dealt him he always treated others kindly. There were so many folks whom would turn their nose up at him and not even acknowledge him when he spoke. This is a guy I will never forget and is a true example to us all in how we should treat one another in this life which is so short.

    I could be having a bad day or be feeling down about something but Peter was always waiting under that tree on that corner to share an enthusiastic and kind word which could make a difference. I am thankful to have crossed paths with one of few on this earth that had a truly kind soul, never discriminated, and always kept his head up no matter what life threw his way.

    You will be missed Pete.
