Chris and Stacey - I was sad to hear of your Dad's passing. Pete was a fixture of my childhood and although I hadn't seen him for many years I remember his laugh...and I laugh thinking back to the numerous "liquid" planning sessions he and Dad had about getting rich by starting a rabbit farm...I know you all have years of stories as well and I wish you a full heart when thinking back on them.

Sincerely,
~Nichole

For many years, Pete went to various LFA 34 meetings, representing the Islands and all their lobster fishers. He was always there to support his fellow fishermen. He will be greatly missed by everyone in the communities of the Islands.
Our sincere condolences to all his family. May your happy memories be greater than the grief you feel and may they carry you through this difficult time.
Laurie & Tony and family
