I worked with Pete in Poughkeepsie as a systems analyst in support of his production control group. He was the energizer bunny, and a real pleasure to work with. May his memory be a blessing...Carl

I can remember riding around in his Mustang convertible after the two hurricanes of 2004. Pete gave me a pad of paper and a pen, which, at first, I didn't know what he wanted me to do. Than as we pulled along side of a truck that happened to be a contractor such as a electrician, plumber, carpenter or glass repair, he had me write the name and telephone from the side of the truck. His goal was to call these contractors and ask for bids for the many repairs we had at Island Crest. Some people might look at the yellow pages, but Pete felt this was easier and quicker. On one bid involving the removal of sand from the ground floor units, someone asked Pete if he had gotten three bids since our condo by-laws required three bids before contracting with anyone. Pete's response, "#@*&xx# and get out of my building." That was that his military training in response to stupid questions.
