He followed in his father’s footsteps and had rental property and a lawn service that he enjoyed. Pete lived his life following the simplest of scripts, “If you want a friend, be a friend”. He was a kind man, and a light to his community who brought a smile to everyone that knew him. He was so loved and indispensable to his family.
