Pete was such a joy to know over the years....even when he DID remember my name...I still think this was a little game to see if you were paying attention! And that sturdy lumberjack handshake of his. Testament to a man of great character and strength --how I'll always remember him. Rest in peace my friend, and please let the angels trim the trees!

What a wonderful man Pete.
We had the opportunity to meet him three times during our vacations to the car shows.
He was a good friend from day one you could ask for anything and everything for us.
We will surely miss him very much.
We wish all friends and family all the best with this great loss.
His Dutch friends Koos & Henk
