Elaine, we are so sorry to read of pete's death. He made such an impression for the short time we knew him. May God be with you and your family in your sorrow.

May the God of all comfort Strengthen the family during this time of sorrow. Those who die God keeps in his memory because they are precious to him._ Psalms 116:15

Even though I live in Florida I have been a Braves fan from the early 80's. I thought Pete, Skip, Don(Sutton) and Joe Simpson were the best

Pete and I pledged the same fraternity at Cornell in the Spring of 1962. He was a great brother and friend, and we all felt badly when he left to seek a career in broadcasting in the Fall of 1963. I heard that he was working at WTOP in Washington, DC, and then lost touch with him for 16 years. In 1979, I found myself in traction with a broken arm and leg in Kennestone Hospital in Marietta, GA. Watching the Braves' games on WTBS-17 helped keep me sane. When I heard that one of the announcers was a guy by the name of Pete Van Wieren, I called Fulton County Stadium and asked if he was one and the same with my Pete. After all, how many could there be? Pete graciously took the call, and we had a great time of catching up, promising to get together when I got out of the hospital. Unfortunately, both of us traveled for a living, and I soon gave up on trying to coordinate a visit. Besides, tuning in three nights a week in my hotel room made me feel close to him, in an electronic kind of way. I've rooted for the Braves ever since, regardless of where I lived in this great country. Pete came a long way from his humble beginnings in Greece, NY to his retirement as one of the premier broadcasters in all of baseball. I would rate only Vin Scully higher than Pete in his ability to add to the fans' enjoyment of the game being viewed. Rest in peace, Peter—I'm sure they have baseball in Heaven, where conditions are ideal 24/7….
