Always cheerful and easy to share thoughts with at IBEW LU 41. After he retired it was great seeing Pete at the LU 41 picnic outing. I'll miss him and will be offering up prayers for your intentions.

My father, Chuck Thomas, was a good friend of Peter. My heart goes out to all of you. I know how the heart breaks losing a parent. I've been through it.

Scott and Brian, may your father (and your beautiful mother) be reunited and resting in eternal peace. God Bless.
