The short time I spent with Peter was always great. I felt honored to be a part of his life. I shared the joy he had for all of his memories as a Marine, Father, Grandfather, as well as an employee at Pratt. He treated me with respect. But, never had no problem speaking his mind or asking a few questions. I will truly miss him. God Speed. Semper Fi

We first met Pete at the Patriotic Commission meetings and then we caught up with him at Burger King where he and my dad in a group of others used to eat breakfast every day on Silver Lane. He has always been a character and I enjoyed talking with him at Burger King and at our commission meetings. He will be missed.
