I spent a fair amount of time at the Vaughn's house growing up. Pete was one of those people that I was always happy to see (rare when you are a teenager!). I will always fondly remember Pete's incredible kindness, warmth, goofy sense of humor and intelligence--such an amazing soul. My thoughts and prayers are with Therese and the Vaughn family, and know that he lives on in the lives of his children and grandchildren.

Mr. Vaughn was a neighbor on 55th Street for several years of my childhood. One of my favorite memories is the time he took us trick or treating dressed as a Viking- complete with a helmet with horns and a trash can lid as a shield. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family. He was a larger-than-life man. Go Pete!
