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.

I remember you, Pete. You were my Tar Heel who played well in College Basketball tournaments. May God send your soul to Paradise, Heaven and The Eternal Bliss.
You'll be truly missed!
