I’m crushed to hear the sad news. Being your UPS man for 25 years and seeing you retire was great. I loved our conversation about lifting weights that instantly gave us a connection. I’d pull up and hear Herc!!!! (Short for Hercules) which always put a smile on my face. Your hard work and dedication over the years was something I always admired. You will be sorely missed by everyone who new you. RIP Brother

I just received the sad news of Pete’s passing.... So Sorry to his family that he thought so much of
I sailed with Pete early on when he first started on the Seabulk Challenger, on and off until he left to go ashore. Pete came to be a great shipmate, a great seaman and a great friend. He also joined a little group of my Merry Pranksters that always enjoyed a good prank and laugh (usually at someone else’s expense)
I remember a great lifeboat ride in Tampa bay harbor with Bibbo and C/M Knoll at the helm, garbling his radio com’s with Captain Stryker so we didn’t have to return to soon ( as Pete had convinced a couple girls from a nearby beach to go for a ride with us). Another great memory that gets Me an Bibbo laughing to this day is a time when I had gotten a new first of it kind, Mac computer in my office. I started playing with it a found a disc with a Police Mugshot Program that allowed you to build a face. My best shot at it was a shipmate, Gary Jackson, who we all pushed to his humor limit. Well, Pete got my printouts of him and made wanted posters, large and small and even laminated it to small medallions worn around his neck. He then posted them all over the living quarters, in his room, inside his medicine cabinet. He saw them all when he came off watch, but really lost it when he got to the coffee machine and found his “Wanted Poster Picture” inside the fill lid.
MISSION ACCOMPLISHED !!!
Sail on Pete, thanks for some good memories

I grew up down the street from the Suriani's. I was an only child, pretty much, and enjoyed being at their house for big family gatherings and holidays. I was the chubby kid that ran around with Tony and Michael. I remember their Uncle Pete playing basketball with us and showing us a thing or two about lifting weights. He had the biggest arms and calves I had ever seen. I distinctly remember Mike and I playing catch out in the middle of the street during a family event. Pete was in the front yard getting ready to leave when Mike asked him how far he could throw a football. I went down the road to where I thought he could throw it. I remember Pete taking the ball, and preparing to throw. He said go a little further back. Then he LAUNCHED a space shuttle! That football flew over my head and down the street. He was a strong man with strong family values and faith in God. I know he is at peace with the Lord. John 3:16

I too sailed with Pete at the beginning of my maritime career at the times Leo and Guy spoke of in their memories (man, that was a long time ago!).

Pete was my watch partner during the time he was making the decision to go ashore and I always admired his faith and steadfast belief to always put family first.

Over the years I always looked forward to dropping down to say hello and catching up when I visited the office.

As far as sharing a story....Well, we're talking Pete here, so you know they are many in number, and a few that are just plain inappropriate, I'll just sum it up by saying he sure knew how to make a long cold night watch pass.

One of the best shipmates I ever had and one of the best men I have ever known. He will be missed, but I'm grateful our paths crossed in life. I'm a better man for it.

Rest easy Pete, Eight Bells.

Pete was a major influence on me as a young man, from learning how to repair the tugs to our long talks on the subject of all things in life. He shared valuable lessons to all of us whether you had time to listen to the lessons or not he would say, "come on in, gotta put my feet up brother" and proced with life's lesson subject of that day. We all loved it and learned from it!
We joked often and one of my favorites that I still use often, when working along side someone you answer the phone right in the middle of holding something heavy or trying to break the last bolt on a flange. It's easy to do so try it... , the phone would ring.. "Gotta take this brother!" Leaving that person holding up the heavy object with a smirk on our faces.
Your legacy lives on Pete with all of us. You truly are one of the most positive influences in my life.
Fair seas BROTHER!

It was a privilege and pleasure to work with Pete in the warehouse, he was usually the first one in each morning, starting his day in the gym while most of us were still barely awake. His dedication and loyalty are something we should all seek to emulate. Pete had an exciting life and sailed around the world early in his career, It was always a pleasure to hear him tell old sea stories. Family brought him back to shore as he was a dedicated family man above all else. He often spoke with great love and pride about his children and grandchildren. On the rare occasions I travelled to a country that Pete had not already visited, he always asked for some coins to add to his collection so he could share them with his grandchildren. He has left us too soon and will be missed by everyone whose life he touched.

I worked with Pete in the warehouse for many years and I always remember walking into the warehouse to my office and hearing him working out every morning without fail. We enjoyed many chats together in my office. He had the most funny and amazing stories to tell about his life on the ships when he was young. We always said he should write a book. He was extremely proud of his children and many grandchildren and he will be sorely missed by all who knew and loved him. I was an honour to have known him. Pete, I will miss you.

Words cannot express the sadness that my wife Beth and I have for our friend, Pete. He was a great Father, Grandpa and one of the people that if you are fortunate to know, you are blessed. I will deeply miss you and our weekly pool time..our talks and our laughs. Blessings for the family at this time...miss you brother...

Pete just retired and I didn’t even get a chance to shake his hand. I remember being in the shop early in the morning
and how strange it was not to see him working out. An empty chair at lunch time in the tool room. I regret not getting together with him after he retired.
I’m sure many hearts go out to his family and friends. Hopefully they can find some peace and comfort at this difficult time.
Rest In Peace Brother. I miss our talks.
