With a stylish sweater wrapped around his broad shoulders and a smile that warmed all of our hearts, Pete is now reunited with his team mate and dear friend, Bob Cunningham and his Coach and mentor, Frank McGuire. I can only imagine the welcome he has received from so many gone before him. I have such personal and wonderful memories of the UNC 1957 team and their Coach. My great fortune was in being Frank's daughter and having the absolute honor of knowing these incredible young men that in 1957, changed the history of basketball, not only for the Tarheels, but for the entire nation. My father loved every single one of these men and was incredibly proud of how they matured and lived their lives. Tommy Kearns, Joe Quigg, Bob Cunningham, Lennie Rosenbluth,Bob Young, Pete and all the rest are and have always been exceptional men of character and integrity. This stellor group of athletes remain at the very core of what made my father the success that he became. As a team they revolutionized how to play the game,stump their competitor,and with class and determination found a way to win! What a blessing they have been to all UNC fans and others whom love basketball and appreciate excellence! It is with sincere love and sympathy that I extend our condolences to the Brennan's, and to the UNC community that loved Pete for the fantastic man that he was. God Bless him on his new journey and may his stylish sweater be replaced by a robe of Grace........I wish him perfect happiness, and promise to never forget how authentically he impacted our lives.

Pete was larger than life. Always had a kind smile and loved to talk to everyone. He will be missed by his friends at Cafe Carolina in Chapel Hill. May God be with his family during this time.

Words can't express what he meant to Matt, myself and our boys... The boys simply could not get enough of him, his stories, adventures and basketball lessons. They really just wanted to be around him, it's true, his presence was larger than life! He took the time to talk to each one of us individually, just to see how life was going. An inspiration to our entire family. We'll miss that, but know he'll be here in our hearts.
There will truly be a void where he so stately stood among us but without a doubt his legacy will be carried on by his children, grandchildren, brothers, sisters, nieces, nephews and all the rest of us. We promise to carry on your stories and passion.
Bet your parents & brothers were waiting for you with open arms! Until we meet again, May God hold you in the palm of his hand...
We love you and will miss you everyday Uncle Pete...

I have many autographed UNC items which Pete was so kind to take the time to sign at the Dean Dome at many basketball games. He was always willing to take a few moments to share , take a picture or autograph some item. It will not be the same going to the Dean Dome and not finding him there cheering on his team.He was a kind and humble man who I greatly admired and appreciated. Once he put his "57 championship ring on my finger so I could get my picture taken with him.I will miss him greatly.

Mr. Brennan may you rest in peace and may God bless your soul and your family as well.
It was an honor to meet you on the few times that I did while I was hanging out with Pete Jr. I became a great fan after I learned of your sports accomplishments as I was too young to have known about them from my younger days, but I enjoyed reading all about your Basketball prowess. May the Good Lord keep You and your Family in his Grace and ease your suffering hearts.
My Deepest Sympathies to you all.

I am very sorry to learn of Pete's passing. Pete was my roommate, fraternity brother and good friend at UNC. If Saint Peter was not a Tarheel fan before Peter's arrival at the pearly gate, I know for sure he is now after visiting with Pete!

May God rest his soul and give comfort to his family and friends.

I knew Pete since childhood - he was my father's teammate on the 1957 UNC team, and the closest of friends. Pete was always larger than life - he filled a room with his charm and humor, and as he and his teammates gracefully aged, their stories and tales became more reverent and inspiring. My own son was privileged to have met Pete and the rest of the team and to spend time with many of them, and he understands (as do I) how special that group of men were, how special the UNC team was, and how remarkable their accomplishments. If there was a common theme among them, it was not the success and accolades of the 1957 season, it wasn't the press clippings, it wasn't the adoration of Carolina fans everywhere; rather, it was and is the dignity and character that each possessed that came from their youth and upbringing, and which was forged by Coach Mcguire.

Pete will be missed.

Pete and the others were amazing in Kansas City and any place else the 57 team played. It was a joy to be a UNC cheerleader during those times.
