Pete gave me the opportunity to come to Texas with Trane in 1969. Over the next 16 years, he continued to give me the opportunities to grow - both in business and as a person. Although we parted our business relationship in 1985, I'm proud to say that we always remained friends, a friendship that I'll always treasure with one of the most truly honest and caring persons one could ever know. Susan, Ellen & Janie, your dad truly was "a winner", in the very best ways. Joan & I offer our condolences and rejoice in his life, here on earth and in Heaven.
As a 'rookie' Trane salesman in 1967, Pete was my mentor. He gave me the opportunity to develop my business & personal strengths. While reading the novel Unbroken, I was reminded of Pete's courage, leadership and dedication to others. My condolences to Susan, Ellen, Janie and your families on the lost of your dad.
