There was never a person that Pete didn't like. He was a friend to all. Pete loved helping people; repairing things, laying tile, installing new appliances, working with wood and anything that needed fixing. He was a master gardener who loved to give his produce away to others. He was cherished by many and was fondly known as dad or papa. He was "Mr. Fix-it"!
