My condolences to Katie and the family. I worked with Pete as part of the management team at Morgan Stanley. We attended a few meetings together and ran into one another in Canandaigua over the years always with a smile on his face. He was one of the kindest, sincerest, truest gentleman that I've ever known. Sorry we lost touch when I left the firm and so sorry to hear of his passing. Sal Pitti

I’m now filled with emotion that I was fortunate to have seen Pete at the reunion, and get one last hug with a moment to talk with him, not realizing it would be the last time as he was checking in with our home base for one last visit and goodbye before his next journey.

One memory that always arises and warms my heart when Pete’s name was ever mentioned was just how inviting—and fun and funny!—his parents, Irene and Homer were.

I can understand why Pete flew home every weekend from NYC when he was going to college to be with his beautiful parents..Who wouldn’t want to go to the track with Homer, have a few toddies with jokes, and use your fancy business school economics education from NY University to help improve the trifecta betting odds when playing the ponies?!

And at home when guests stayed over—his mom, Irene, who was from the south and always gave you that southern hospitality and graciousness as a habit, making you feel so welcome.

More than a few times when I was invited to stay at his house—after Pete and I had gone out bopping around town, making sure the NT bar folk patrons were drinking enough—and helping them make progress if money was an issue—Pete would say: “Are you ready to sleep over and wake up to one of Irene’s Olympic breakfasts”?

Lord god and hell “Yes!” I exclaimed, knowing the next morning would begin with a wide-spread smorgasbord menu that included—but not limited to—generous portions and additional servings of scrambled eggs, hominy grits, English muffins, pancakes, sausages, bacon, ham, fresh cut fruit, pancakes, yogurt, coffee and juice.

Pete inherited by loving example that we all had witnessed when we were guests at his home, Homer’s fun humor and business class, which was tempered and complimented with Irene’s gracious manners and empathy—a beautiful blessing that we will all remember, with tears, as we celebrate Pete’s joyous and successful life, and to now offer strength and support to his grieving family.

Wise King Solomon wrote, "A man who has friends must himself be friendly" (Proverbs 18:24, NKJV). That accurately describes Peter Mye, whom I met through some of my other friends. I was greatly saddened when I learned he had passed away. Pete was always likeable and friendly, and whenever I was around him - at school, at his house, or in my Wurlitzer Park neighborhood - there were always smiles and usually some healthy laughter. I found Peter's signature in my North Tonawanda High School 1974 yearbook. It reads, "Michael, You're a great kid - Believe me! Remember the time we tossed you [into] Sammy's [i.e., Sam Adams] pool. [I forgave Pete for that, and it was fun anyway.] Good luck at school and God Bless! Peter"
God bless you too, Peter, and may God grant grace and peace to your dear family. You will be greatly missed.

Peter was a kind , soft spoken friend in high school , he laughed easily , and blushed even easier. I'm glad I got to see him at our Class of 74 reunion this summer. God bless all his loved ones.

Peter was a great guy. We had many adventures in high school. One of the nicest persons I've ever known. This was a great loss. Attached is a photo of Peter and I when we were 17 years old waiting for the chairlift at high school ski club. My condolences to all of his family.

My dear friend and brother Peter. You have left us way too soon. My heart goes out to Katie, Emily, Julia. Johnny and Charles and your entire family. Since 8th grade you have been like a brother to me. We have such wonderful memories together. I’ve shed 10,000 tears but smiled 10,000 smiles since I’ve heard you were soon to leave us. My last memory of you is seeing you on the dance floor at our recent high school reunion as someone had coerced you out to the dance floor. Your smile and laugh at that exact moment is what I shall remember forever. Your friendship and brotherhood has left a lasting positive impact on me that will live on forever. I love you and miss you dearly. John (Yash) Baran - NT Class of 1974 😪❤️
