Something made me think of Pete"Mr. Petroski" today. I'm in shock and my heart is heavy! I had no idea of his passing. I worked for Pete several years ago over as the receptionist at Vahldiek, Cano & Petroski. He was such a sweet man. He was full of life and laughter. May he continue to Rest in Peace. My deepest condolences to his wife and daughters, which I knew he was very proud of.
August 19, 2012
Well, a week from today will be 3 months since Pete passed. It still seems so unreal to me, feels like it was only yesterday. Everyday I think about the conversation we were having just moments before he passed so unexpectedly. Me, my wife and daughter continue to pray for the family and loved ones that lost such an honorable man, friend, father , husband, son and brother... and an all around exciting guy to be around.

Pete's last few hours here in this life were spent talking about his daughters, wife and family.. he left this life professing his love for everyone dear to him. As I could tell by what was on his heart and mind. I can only hope that my girls know the same whenever it's my time to go home.

May you be blessed, find peace and feel His love during these difficult times.

Jennie, Katie, Lauren and Danielle,

Oh, how I loved your husband and your father. He was the brother that my parents never gave me. Pete was always a man I could count on to be there in all our family situations and give solutions to how to fix almost anything. Jennie and I started our journey together with our men 28 years ago and I will always cherish how Pete was the only male allowed to share our bridal party cabin. He was a girl's best guy friend. Cooked us delicious pancakes and helped all of us get ready for the big day:) My later precious memories would be how Pete was always there for my mom during some difficult years. Not only there but always up beat and sharing a "Pete laugh" that only he could give and lighten up the entire room with. Pete was always there for my children...especially when it came to a "game day". He was the uncle there taking the best pictures and making new friends so easily. Our last football game Pete came to capture pictures of Sean doing his thing (which he did) but took so many great pictures of the cheerleaders that they used them in the middle school yearbook. Those mom's are still asking about my brother-in-law. Pete had such an incredible techie gift that he was always the first to be called to solve a computer question. Pete's life was such a blessing to everyone that he encountered and his kindness and goodness will be cherished forever. He is a man that is a role model for my own husband and sons to follow in. I saw this verse and it touched my heart as we all continue to grieve for the loss of this great man.
"Life is a blend of love and loss, but love is always stronger...Love lives on forever."
Your light will continue Pete through your beautiful daughters and wife and all the lives you have so graciously touched and I will see you again my friend in a place where there are no more tears, no more sadness but life eternal with our Heavenly Father. I love you Pete and thank Jesus for your beautiful life.

My heart is still heavy and feels as if it has been pierced when I think about the loss of Pete. I remember him as a towheaded little boy with a sweet smile who grew into a loving man. Although we didn't see each other the past few years because we were all busy with our families, children, and life, he was such a treasure. His voice, laugh, and smile will forever be embedded in my memory.

Rest in peace Pete. From our family to yours. I know my father would have wanted to be there at your funeral and he is sorry he was not.
June 04, 2012
I met Pete at the local YMCA. He always gave 100% in his workouts but was always willing to help others who were having problems. He helped me a couple of times. He was a true gentleman. My condolences to the family.
June 04, 2012
Pete was always one of my champions during junior high and high school and we shared many hours studying together. I cheered when he got his degree in accounting - of all things - and again when he got his law degree. I still have the leather wallet with my name on it that he made for my birthday so many years ago.
My deepest condolences to the entire Petroski family. My thought and prayers are with you all.
June 04, 2012
My heartfelt prayers are with those Pete left behind especially for his dear beautiful wife, his three darling daughters, his father & mother; the rest of his family and numerous friends. A model man who was balanced in body, mind and spirit he touched an abundance of lives. May he rest in peace!
June 03, 2012
I am so sorry to hear of Pete's passing, and know you are all in my thoughts and prayers during this time. Pete's Dad Daniel and my Dad John Boriskie were best friends growing up.

I played baseball for Spring Branch and faced Pete many times in high school. He was a true competitor and a fierce pitcher at Northbrook. Pete was full of smiles and always complimentary of the competition.

Pete's legacy will be one for all to admire. My deepest condolences to his family.

To the Petroski Family, I am truly sorry for your loss. I had the privledge to play baseball with Pete since we were small boys. Pete always played hard and wanted to pitch in the big games.

I am very grateful for Pete and his family. My parents were one of the many whom Pete did not say "No". He was there for them when they needed him for advice and as a friend. He will be sorely missed and my heart goes out to Jennie and the girls. God bless his soul.

What an incredibly good friend and person.He was so positive no matter what was thrown at him. Definitely the kind of guy you'd want on your side in a lawsuit, a fight or a limbo contest. I have so many good memories of Pete as do all who he used to barbecue with out at the World Championship Barbecue. We will so definitely miss him. Our very best to the Petroski family and you and Pete are in our prayers.

Our prayers for strength are with Pete's family as they deal with this great loss. We have many fond memories of Pete from the Met in boot camp, and enjoyed his enthusiam for martial arts and any athletic endeavor, but most of all, he loved his girls. He was confident and manly enough to 'wear pink' if that's what his girls required of "Mr Dad". Pete will be missed greatly.
May 30, 2012
To all of Dan's family: My love, thoughts and prayers are with you during this most difficult time. It was a blessing to have called "Peteroski" my friend. Gone but not forgotten!

Pete has been a wonderful colleague and friend through good and bad times ... even this past Friday when I called him with a legal crisis. Anyone who knew Pete knows he loved his family and cherished their love and support, too. Pete has passed from this life, but his Spirit remains in our hearts. May the peace that passes all understanding be with Pete's family and friends now and forever.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you Jennie, Danielle, Lauren and Katie.

Pete was an amazing guy. He and my husband, Richard, had many long conversations. Pete would do pretty much anything Richard asked him to in boot camp at the Downtown Club at the Met. He was just an all-around great guy. We will miss him dearly.

I am so sorry for your loss! Pete had a huge impact at the Y. It just won't be the same without him. His smile, laugh and love for his family shined so bright. You will be missed! Petroski family let me know if I can do anything to help! Anything!

To the Petroski family, you are heavy on my heart and have been since the moment of this accident and tragic loss.

I was the one with Pete when he passed and had the honor of spending the evening sitting around the fire with him discussing family, being a husband and father to our daughters, animals and wildlife - the last hours prior to his passing.

Now Memorial Day will forever be a weekend of remembrance for my friend Pete within our family.

Miss ya Pete!

I'd like to take this time to share one of my many memories of Pete. It was after a high school dance, I asked Pete where he learned to dance; he replied with something like I don't know how to dance but I'm not missing out on the fun. I don't know why I remember this but I do. Thanks Pete for many great memories.
