Tom and Robby, I was so sad to hear of Pete's passing. My clearest memory of Pete was when I babysat him over a summer when school was out. He was young, maybe 4 years old. What a little terror he was! Always on the move and getting into anything he could reach. Luckily, I could call my mom for advice. Pete and I eventually got along and he was fun to be with.
I really appreciated Pete and Robby's love and concern for my parents, Dot and Charlie. Knowing you were just across the back field was very comforting. Thank you. I will miss Pete's laugh and chuckle. Rest in peace, Petey.

Pete and Robby are family to me. I have known them my whole life. They lived ( and still live) across the field from our house. Every summer/ almost everyday, my brother Dean, Pete, Robby and I played baseball in the backyard. Pete was a good hitter and I could run fast, so together we made a whole player against our brothers. Pete & I trick-or-treated, waited at the bus stop and rode bikes and mini bikes together. He was funny, sensitive, giving.....the best friend anyone could ask for. February 8, Pete's birthday, is always a special day for me. I moved away, but when I would see him, he always wanted to know how I was, how my Mom and Dad were & siblings. When my parents were elderly, he & Robby would watch over the house for us to be sure they were okay. I will miss Pete's laugh and hearing his loud whistle across the field to say Hi. Such a special person.

Petey and I were in first grade together and stayed friends ever since . Just three weeks ago he pulled up at my shop just to say hello as he had been doing over the last several years Petey was always full of happiness and made everyone his friend . Our conversations were always started the same by Petey " how is your mom how is your wife you been married 30 years how you do that ". His laugh was contagious he will be greatly missed by everyone that knew him.

Petey was the most joyful happy person I ever knew I met him in 1980-81 . He was always there giving you a great smile and good advice when you were sad . After our last reunion I met Petey for lunch at pappas which he lived he was ordering everything in the menu so I could try it he said your not eating enough and had the waitress pack a bunch of crab cakes and some other stuff so I could take it home .he was always thinking of others . RIP Petey we will miss that silly laugh and big smile he always Brightened every room with miss Petey ❤️

I remember Pete's smile when he'd see me. We rode our motorcycles through the woods when he was 10. He'd always offer to help out anyway he could. He'd always give me updates on the old neighborhood. I'll miss him sorely.

I met Pete at Owings Mills HS. I was the jv football coach, fresh out of college and raring to go. The first two players I met that year was Pete and his buddy Jack Gilden. . More than 40 years have gone by for me since that time. I still have a place in my heart for those guys. Pete and his gang were fun, full of life, and great characters that always grounded me. To all his family and friends, I feel for your loss and only hope his spirit lives on in all of us.

I first met Pete working at Quality Care ambulance. I remember meeting this guy who was happy and enthusiastic about what he was doing. I learned a lot from Pete during our time there. We worked together again many years later, and he was still Pete. My thoughts and prayers go out Robbie, and the rest of his family. I was honored to call him my friend, he will truly be missed.

I remember when my cousin, Barb, met and married Pete's Dad, Tom. I remember when Pete and Rob were born. We visited often over the years. Pete was always happy, friendly, joking and loving. He was a sweet soul. I feel blessed to have known him and will always have him in my heart and fond memories. Rest in peace Petey. ❤
