"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.
