We have had many wonderful golf trips together from “up north” Michigan to Myrtle Beach, then on to Florida. Pete always had the dry sense of humor. He called me “Kate” instead of “Kat”, but that made him special. Along with the golf, we enjoyed Euchre parties, card games and just enjoyed our lives with friends together. May you rest in Heavenly Peace until we all meet up again. Condolences to Judy, the children, and entire family.

May God lift you up and comfort you during this difficult time and may your memories of Pete bring you peaceful thoughts to carry you through the days ahead.
As believers, we are comforted in the knowledge that someday we will be reunited with our loved ones for eternity.
We will keep you in our prayers.

I always called him Sr. I had 24 years of your love but you shared more than that to my children. I will always appreciate that more than ever.
He had a sarcastic way about him that would always make me laugh. You are and always will be an awesome grandfather to my children, peter, katie and jennifer. Your love you gave them will be in their hearts and memories forever. May God receive you in his loving arms.

Where do I start, Pete has been a friend since the middle 60's. When I was grounded at home for 25 years (or close to 25) Pete was the ONLY person that could stop at my place talk to my parents to charm them. Next thing I knew he and I were crusing Woodward. He was the Brother I wanted and needed. Great stories and memories to many to mention. But so grateful to have them. My heart is breaking for all of the Pierce Family. Prayers, and I am only a phone call away...
