Pete had the Perseverance of a Lion, The patience of a Saint and a Heart of Gold. Pete helped me pre-ride my first Hog ride which was 60 miles. We did it on a Saturday 6 times until I had it down pat, and he had a grin on his chin and a tear in his eye from all the laughing. His Legacy in the Club will be everlasting.
Rest in Peace, my friend. Marc Farwell

Pete was an Angel, a Saint, a Friend and a HOG ICON. He was our Welcomer /Greeter and he made everyone at ease with his jokes or short stories. He was one -of -a -kind. Always the life of any party or meeting. He had charm and finesse, was loved by many, and had the gift to gab. He gave the best bear hugs and a kiss on the cheek. He knew how to make people feel good. Pete often made Marc and I feel special when he would invite us to join him at his table. What a treat that was! We felt like the honored guests and we always had such a wonderful time with him filled with lots of laughter.
Although Pete left us way too soon, he taught us a lot about endurance and determination. Out of every situation there is a lesson to be learned. We learned life is to be enjoyed, don’t take anything for granted and tell your loved ones and friends everyday how much you love and care for them. For we have learned that life can be taken away so swiftly.
Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife, Teri and her family; his brother, Anthony ; and his sister-in - law, Raelene for gentle peace, quiet strength and may your good memories heal your sorrow. With DEEPEST SYMPATHY. Ellarea Farwell

When I think of Peter’s passing, somehow it just doesn’t seem real. Gone too soon. We will miss him and we pray that he will find eternal peace.
We didn’t get to see him that often but when we did we definitely enjoyed his company and inevitably shared some laughs.
We pray for Teri so that she will be able to stay strong and keep him close in her heart.
Tom and Marion Cisternino
(Brother and Sister in law. )

Peter is my brother-in-law and so I have known him for 48 yrs. Like his friends said, he had a gruff exterior but a wonderfully soft heart. He called me a pain in the ass when I would call and then say that he loved me!
My husband Billy shared Peter's love of guns and motorcycles and they shared their ideas. Billy will sincerely miss him.
He is still here to me as I hear his voice. Of course I am totally available to my sister who I love deeply.

I was so sad to hear of Pete's passing. He was a great friend and I will miss him on rides. Linda and I send our condolences to his family.

Pete would say he was my only friend-but we were certainly best of friends. His presence was large, and he is missed greatly. He was loud, sometimes intimidating, but once you got to know him you found out that he was really a softy at heart. He liked our cat, Pele so much, that he picked up an abandoned neighborhood cat, Gary, and gave it a good home. When Gary passed, he adopted another and gave it a home. He was really tender at heart, beneath a gruff exterior. That was part of his charm. We also shot in firearm competitions every month, and we were quite a team. I valued his friendship greatly, and he will be missed greatly.

My dear friend, you left us too soon, but you will always be with us. I remember when I first joined the chapter, your encouragement to me and to Rosemary especially when she became a rider herself. I also remember you accusing me to be a pain in the ass like yourself and then turned around and say “I love you”, well, I loved you too and I thank you for all the fun and the rides we had together, great memories.
Than you Peter !

The Yankees lost their biggest fan and we lost a great friend. I road my motorcycle with Peter and OHOG for 20 years and I miss you brother. RIP my friend and Elli and I send condolences to Terri and Anthony.

If I could write a story, It would be the greatest ever told
of a kind, helphful and loving Friend, who had a heart of gold.
Pete was like a Brother in arms to me I shall miss him terribly, his life was a blessing, his memory a treasure, he was loved beyond words and will be missed beyond measure. I could write a million pages but still be unable to say, just how much he was loved and will be missed by all who knew him. Every single day I will remember all he taught me, mentored and joked with me and others. I'm hurt but won't be sad because he'll send me down his wisdoms and answers when I think of him or ask him hows it going. He'll always be my Brother and Friend.

He always provided joy on our ride. He would always say “ Are we there yet!” on long rides. Pete & l were the only HOG members who always rode Honda GOLDWINGS
