Uncle Pete was a kind and gentle man and loved his family dearly. Mom and Dad always felt close to him and enjoyed many happy times playing cards with him and Aunt Sophie. Love to all his family. May he Rest In Peace.

Uncle Pete was a sweet guy and one of my favorites. So many memories golfing and laughing with him and my dad. I’m glad I got to see you recently, but sorry we never made it back out on the course like you wanted. All our love to the family.

Uncle Pete was a regular at our house growing up and there are so many memories of him but one of my favorites came years later when we were married. Stan and I came home for a visit and one of Stan’s favorite things was to ask for directions to someplace while Uncle Pete was around with dad- the two of them never agreed on how to get anywhere and we watched in amusement as they would argue over whose way was better! He was a kind soul and will be sorely missed. Live to you all!!! Judy and Stan Clegg

Pete was one of the best bosses I ever had. I worked for him and Andy at Stallards IGA. I worked in the meat department with him and Jack Graham and there was never a dull moment and made work fun. He was one amazing cook and I learn alot about cooking from him and learned the best dishes come from taste and not a recipe. My condolences to the family and thanks for the wonderful memories Pete. R.I.P.
