Condolence & Memory Journal

Pete and I were introduced by a mutual friend. We became the best of friends and spoke every night. We enjoyed getting to know one another through our texts and telephone conversations. He was the sweetest person I have ever known. Due to covid, we were hoping to see one another for Valentine's Day.
I am still trying to recover from this tragedy. He loved his family, his step sons's Santo and Mario so much!
You are missed my dear Pete.

Dear Michelle, I met Pete just a few months ago. I was working on a broken computer at a tavern, he walked up to me and asked if I needed any assistance. I quickly ask him to hold my flashlight and he did. As I worked, I realized who he was and remarked I graduated with his sister and that he graduated ahead of me. After years in business I've never had anyone offer help. I'm guessing this is who he was. So sorry for your loss.

Dorothy and Michele, so sorry for your loss. Peter was such a good guy! He always had a smile on his face and a great sense of humor. He had a zest for life and a genuine heart!

Pete you were close friends with Butch and therefore we were close too. Butch's friends are my friends too. All of Butch's friends were an elite group of gentlemen and humorous fellas that always had good clean fun. What a large whole I have in my heart that you, Butch and Kevin left me with. I do know all the memories that I will always have are good ones and when I think of the Three Musketeers I will have to laugh. RIP Pete and give Kevin and Butch a good laugh from me.
