I got to know Pete back in the eighties when I was a teenager working at Fairlanes Bowling Alley at the Time he bowled with I believe with a fellow name Charlie they both took me in like a son very fun to be around. I lost contact with Pete for a little while then in the nineties I delivered flowers for Hoaks Greenhouse and got in contact with him again at Burchams and he never changed, between his wife and him I dont know who was the nicest. He will be MISSED!!

I have worked at Burcham Jennings Funeral Home for going on 4 years. When I first met Pete I also didn't know if he liked me because he always was direct and wanted everything just right for our families at the funeral home.It took me and him sometime to get to become friends after that he was like a grandfather to me. I would do anything to help him. Pete always talked about his family how proud he was of his kids and grandchildren. I love working with him. He told me what I needed to do, because that was the way we do it at Burcham's. Pete I will miss you more that words can say. I know he is at peace and with his wife in heaven now. May God bless you Pete and your family at this very sad time.
