I was in band with Pete ( I also knew him as Pete). I remember one night we had a concert at the old high school and pete didn't show. So Tim Shaw says to me, " Hey let's go get him, concert dont start for 15 minutes." Ot was a 15 minute drive Pete's house. I'm thinking, what the heck do you need me for? We get to Pete's house off Templeton Gap Rd, Pete comes to the door with a total shocked look on his face, like, what are you guys doing here?? Pete says he's not felling well and won't be going. We get back to the school and Mr. Waters is po'd!!! Ahhh, kids!!!! LOLOLOL R.I.P. My Friend!!!!!
