Pete worked as a general contractor for many years. He enjoyed cooking, fishing, and wood working; he was especially gifted at making miniature buildings. He was a Boy Scout Leader for mentally challenged boys for many years. He loved his four legged babies; his six cats and two dogs; and doing pig roasts for his family and friends. Pete had a fantastic sense of humor; it always made him feel better if he made someone else smile.
A Memorial Service will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, May 4, 2013, at the Fairdale United Methodist Church, with Rev. Richard Spering, officiating.
Flowers will be provided by the family.
