In 1943 the family moved to Pasadena, TX so that his dad could work in the Todd Shipyard building ships used in World War II. Pete attended school in Pasadena, graduating from Pasadena High School in 1955. He was able to attend Sam Houston State University for a short time. Upon his return to Pasadena, he married and welcomed daughter Susan Renee. Pete was drafted into the US Army in 1961, where he proudly served for 2 years, 2 months and 4 days. He was so proud to serve our Country. After his military service, he was hired as a mechanic at Phillips Petroleum where he worked on company vehicles. In 1977 Pete had the opportunity to be reacquainted with his friend Jerry Davis' younger sister Paula. They were married on Christmas Eve 1977 and moved to Deer Park, TX. They were happily married for 42 years, enjoying many trips together. They moved to Burnet, TX in 1995 after Pete's retirement from Phillips Petroleum. Pete enjoyed collecting old guns, driving and working on old cars, drag racing and watching NASCAR races. He was particularly proud of his yellow 1955 Chevrolet Nomad. He was a founding member of the Lakes Area Rods & Classics and was recently given a Lifetime Membership. Although the last few years have been difficult for him, he loved nothing better than talking (and talking) to anyone about cars, guns and the military. A special thanks to Tyson Denton, Jameson and Carson Lewis, and Chad Mulhollan for providing an ear. Pete was preceded in death by his parents, his niece Michelle Driskill, and former wife Jo Nell O'Brien, Renee's mother.
