Dear Vonachen family, we would like to offer our prayers and sympathies for you at this time. Pete was one of the most sincere, funny, witty, generous and endearing men who ever walked on this earth. Despite all of his accomplishments in life, he was very modest and unassuming. He always made others feel welcome and at ease. He was a great friend to our family and we will miss him. He has earned his eternal reward many times over. God bless!

As a newly appointed Fire Chief in 1993 I decided instead of going to the gambling boat with everyone else to take in a Peoria Chiefs game. Small crowd that May night and I was introduced to Mr. Vonachen who asked why I was there? I told him I was a Fire Chief at a conference and loved baseball. He asked me for a business card. A week later I received a Chiefs hat and T-Shirt along with a hand written note that I now was a "Chief" too! . From that day forward a Chiefs fan but more importantly a Pete Vonachen fan. I saw him 2 years ago with my wife at the park and told him that story. I hope you and Harry are sharing a few Buds now. God bless you and may you rest in peace.
