Pete is survived by his mother, Mary; brother, Alex (Amy); sister, Patricia; Aunt Katie Straw (Chuck); as well as cousins and caring relatives. The network of friends and former co-workers throughout the country who are saddened as well at his passing is a testimony to his likeable character. He will be missed.

Alex, I was truly saddened to read of Petey's passing. I too know the pain of losing one's younger brother. I remember well many of the antics the three of us shared while growing up. My condolences to your family; may Petey rest in peace.

My heartfelt condolences to the Trilivas family on Petie's passing. Pete was always fun to be with and could always be counted on to find an element of humor in nearly every situation. I still look back fondly on those days in the 1970s when I worked with Pete and his dad Jerry. They were both great guys to work with. May they enjoy the peace of the Lord, which surpasses all understanding, for all eternity.

Alex, Patti- so sorry for your loss. I will always remember Pete for his energy and humor. We shared so many adventures and friends over the years. Time and distance take so much away from us, but they can't take away the memories and joy that once were.

Alex,
I am so sorry to hear of your brothers passing. I will always remember his "sly" grin, warm heart and sense of humour.
