Vicki, we cannot express the level of sorrow or understand the grief you and your family must be experiencing. We are so sorry to hear of Pete's passing. Pete was an extremely caring friend who's generosity will live in all our memories, serving as a model for the people we can only hope to be. His humor and character were solely unique to anyone we have ever known and we will miss him dearly. Please let Nicole and I know if there is anything we can help you with or if you just need to talk (410-800-7333).

I can only attach 1 photo memory. So, I'm including his retirement ceremony. A joyous occasion culminating his dedication to service. He is also throwing a 'shout out' to the audience, letting us know he is watching us, as I know he is watching over you :)

Love, Kevin & Nicole Puckace

"Petey" Pete Farlow loved his family dearly. It showed in his actions and his conversation. Especially , his love for Vicky. Her willingness to support him not just through all his recent illnesses, but through the exceptional support that they both provided his close friends through the years. They showed loyalty and support for many friends, often in tough times for them.
We often felt that Pete missed his professional calling. That he could have been a stand-up comedian and a very good one. Memories of his quick wit and hilarious story telling will last with everyone he knew.
Pete will be missed.

Pete, I always enjoyed hearing your insight on new music and of course the classics. There wasn’t anything better than watching you get out of a sand trap. There weren’t many folks around like you that enjoyed life from all perspectives and seemed to enjoy every minute of it.

Your smile and laugh was uplifting . Your calm and cool demeanor was unmistakable. But your love and knowledge of sports and music 🎼 made you a true renaissance man for the modern era! Rock-on!
